The Art Program

Each student receives their own partitioned studio space with 24 hour access. They also have 24 hour access to communal studios in painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture. The faculty represent a wide range of viewpoints and approaches. The media in which students and faculty work are also broad. However, the common link among these varying sensibilities, which remains primary in importance, is that a genuine dialogue with both faculty and peers is established so that an intensive continuity of working experience is maintained.

This intensive studio program is designed for students with a high level of commitment. In many ways motivation is more important than what some might call ability. The School of Art presents the opportunity for the kind of sustained and focused study in studio art not available in academic settings.

The program is not designed for everyone. Those who need continual instruction or who cannot work

in a community would find the long days, the requirement for self-motivation and the demanding nature of the program difficult to adjust to. But for those hungry to engage themselves with exceptionally serious artists, those who wake up in the morning thinking about being in the studio, this is home.

Drawing plays an important role. Many view it as the link between disciplines, the vehicle through which one thinks as an artist. Our session begins with a two-day drawing marathon taught by all of the resident faculty in the school at the start of the session. This not only introduces students to the faculty in a very direct way (before students set up their schedules for the remainder of the summer), but it also emphasizes the importance of drawing in the context of the larger role that it plays as an intrinsically meaningful bridge within the school. 

Collectively the artists/faculty who participate each summer are represented in major museums and galleries throughout the world. They are also highly respected artists who, altogether, have taught in nearly every major art program in America. Most of the artists who teach at CHQ are resident faculty. Resident faculty members teach, work and live o the grounds of the Institution for extended periods of time (two to seven weeks). Visiting faculty are generally present for one to three days of critiques and/or teaching. A final biographical listing of this summer’s faculty is available on this web site in late February.

Student Handbook

 

Attendance & College Credit

Attendance

The school stresses the individuality of each student, while insisting on a mature working attitude, the ability to work independently without the constant presence of the instructor, and the ability to coexist supportively in a community of artists. Full-time participation is mandatory. This consists of attending morning and afternoon sessions as well as the School of Art lecture series. Most students choose to work well beyond the minimum. More information on this program will be provided at the opening orientation. The school reserves the right to dismiss any student, without refund, for behavior that is disruptive to the community learning and living environment.

College Credit

Students still enrolled in college often can receive graduate or undergraduate transfer credit for study in the School of Art from their home institution. Such credit should be arranged through the department chair prior to the beginning of our session. Contact Lois Jubeck through the School of Art if you need verification of faculty contact hours or other information for your department chair. Up to six credits are also available by special arrangement with the State University of New York (SUNY) College at Fredonia. This is at the prevailing cost of SUNY tuition, in addition to your tuition at CHQ. This option must be selected at the beginning of the session.

"The faculty, students, lectures, studio spaces, concerts, etc. were all wonderful. Only time went by too fast. It is a rare thing to find a place where you have no worries and just have to get into your studio in the morning."


– Sarah Miller, BA student, Sorbonne, Paris

 


 

 


2018 applications will open January 1, 2018

Apply Here


Admission

Applicants must submit 20 images of recent work along with the online application. The deadline for applications is April 1. Work/Study Scholarship and admission decisions are announced before the end of April via email. No decision will be made until the application is complete, including the non-refundable $25 application fee. Admission is competitive as we enroll only 40 students into the school.

Scholarships

CHQ offers a low tuition rate relative to other national summer art programs. Even so, there are many students who request assistance, and financial aid is competitive. The School of Art awards work/study scholarships through the assignment of jobs which require up to a maximum of 10 hours per week. All financial aid awards are in the form of work/study scholarships. There are no awards which do not include a work/study component. Students who accept an award and do not satisfactorily fulfill work/study obligations will be dismissed from the program with no refund. All students on a full scholarship should expect to work the full ten hours/week.

There are awards for full tuition, half tuition and partial tuition, as well as some awards which also cover housing. Additionally, there may be resident hall assistant positionswhich cover housing costs for mature students (these positions are sometimes

given to returning students who demonstrated excellent potential in their work/study positions in previous years). Residence hall assistant positions are available to students age 21 and older who have had experience in college residence halls or in supervision of young people. Work/study awards are made on the basis of a combination of need and merit. This is done with a portfolio review and demonstrated financial need. All aid applicants must include copies of their two most recent available federal tax returns (do not include W-2s in lieu of federal tax returns) for the student and/or parents (any 2 years from 2013 to 2016). If you have been claimed as a dependent on someone else's return in either of these years you must include copies of that person's tax returns as well. If you did not file taxes then you must include parental tax forms. Failure to include tax returns will result in automatic rejection of your financial aid request.
