Design this intensive to fit your specific needs. It is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to learn more about their artistic vision.
Each 8-week intensive consists of five workshop weeks, with an additional three weeks included for one-on-one mentoring with a member of the resident faculty. The first week and last week of the intensive should be reserved for mentored weeks.
Each 12-week intensive consists of eight workshop weeks, with an additional four weeks included for one-on-one mentoring with a member of the resident faculty. The first week and last week of the intensive should be reserved for mentored weeks.
Students may elect to concentrate their work solely in one field, or design a program that encompasses interests in a variety of areas. All Maine-based workshops offered in 2019 are available as part of an intensive program.
All levels are welcome to apply. The process begins by completing an application, either online or by calling 877-577-7700 (toll free), 207-236-8581 (internationally). Applicants should submit a brief statement of interest and goals for the intensive, a portfolio (websites are fine), and an initial listing of workshops they wish to attend. Upon receipt of all materials, a staff faculty member will contact the student and together they will design an intensive program. The intensive must be a contiguous block of time.
