Winter Courses

During our two-week winter intensive, students can take 1 of three for-credit courses. The winter session is small and hosts no more than 30 students on campus. It is a great time to enjoy the winter landscape while taking advantage of the space for quiet and uninterrupted artmaking. Our campus is located in Saugatuck, Michigan, about 2 hours away from Chicago. Students must reside on campus and take the course for school credit.


Winter 2019 course information will be announced September 2018.
