Students in a 2013 Creative Summer Workshop

Digital arts, fashion design, painting, jewelry making, and everything in-between are on the agenda for Creative Summer Workshops at Columbus College of Art & Design.

Registration is currently open for workshops for students grades one through 12, which are taught by CCAD faculty and community artists and meet daily in the morning or afternoon for one or two weeks.

“For students in grades oneĀ  through 12, summer is the perfect time to bolster interests they may not be able to explore at school,” said Cat Sheridan, director of Continuing and Professional Studies at CCAD.

New this year is an extended care option designed to ease scheduling woes for working families. Extended care will provide care before, between, and after daytime workshops, giving youth grades three and up a full-day schedule. It will include breakfast, lunch, and a snack, and will be available during all six sessions.

For adults, weeklong workshops and eight-week courses are available. Registration for adult classes will begin in early May on

After more than a decade of successful summer workshops, Sheridan said that bolstering the visual arts in Columbus is more important now than ever.

“The arts make us a smarter, more inclusive, forward-moving community,” Sheridan said. “Our summer programs allow us to invite the whole community [to engage with the college] in a meaningful way.”

In addition to Creative Summer Workshops, CCAD has residential pre-college programs for grades seven through 12 and a residential program for art educators.
