I have spent the summer making art at VCU’s SSP, the program has been an exciting and challenging experience:
The Summer Studio Program at Virginia Commonwealth University (SSP@VCU) is an 8-week studio-intensive program for artists interested in developing work in a supportive hothouse environment. The program fosters development of professional attitudes and skills with an emphasis on individual investigation. The program provides students with an opportunity for concentrated studio practice at an advanced level within a community of talented and motivated artists. This two-month, non-credit, post-baccalaureate-style residency studio program is appropriate for the artist developing a portfolio for application to graduate school, as well as the artist interested in an opportunity for uninterrupted immersion and development of a studio practice in a challenging and supportive environment.
