Summer Studios

Summer Studios



Ohio University’s Summer Studios are intensive experiences in creative practice. Work with faculty in our professional studios to create portfolio-quality work, earn college credit, and develop your artistic voice. Immerse yourself in the fine arts this summer!

High school students ages 13-18 have the option of commuting to campus every day or staying on campus in university residence halls for the full college experience. Focus your energy on an area of study, relax and enjoy time with peers during coordinated evening and weekend activities, and take the time to explore our beautiful campus in Athens, Ohio!

Choose from one-week and two-week courses taught by Ohio University faculty and professional artists, designers, and performers.

Session dates reflect on-campus stay; courses run Monday through Friday for commuter students.
