The Arts Academy is held each summer for middle and high school students who wish to participate in an intensive study of music, visual arts or performing arts.

Participants in the sessions had the opportunity to develop advanced skills in visual communication, portfolio development and manipulation of two and three-dimensional media. Visual Arts courses offered experiences with two-dimensional and three-dimensional media as well as graphic design. Students also engaged in collaborative projects and art inspired games.
