JumpstART is a summer Precollege Visual and Performing Arts Workshop sponsored by the School of Arts and Communication. The program is designed for young artists, ages 15 to 18, who have demonstrated a heightened interest in the visual and performing arts and seek an opportunity to increase their skills. Jumpstart provides participants with two weeks of accelerated instruction in a university environment. In addition to the in-class learning experience, student education is supplemented with visiting artist lectures, workshops and excursions. A fundamental goal of Jumpstart is to assist students in the development of a portfolio that can be used to apply to a university or art institute of their choosing. The program concludes with a portfolio and performance review, a final exhibition and an award ceremony.
