Winter Courses

During our two-week winter intensive, January 5-18, 2020,  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 2020 registration begins on November 11, 2019. In-Person Registration & Work Scholarship Sign-up starts at 8:30 am, Ox-Bow office: 36 S Wabash, 1425. Online Registration begins at 1pm CST and continues until classes are full.
