  • This art history summer camp intensive for high-school students consists of two components:

    1. A study of the work of the early Italian Baroque painter Michelangelo da Merisi, more commonly known as Caravaggio, and the impact that his unique artistic vision had on 17th-century Spanish painters from Naples-based Jusepe Ribera to the most renowned Spanish painter, Diego Velazquez; and
    2. A technical exploration of the tenebroso or theatrical lighting that make Caravaggio’s work and 17th-century Spanish painting so visually impressive, emotionally compelling and dramatic. Students will create a drawing on toned paper, either after a masterwork of Caravaggio or after a Spanish master.

    Mornings will be dedicated to the art historical aspects of the period and the afternoons will be devoted to creating a drawing based on an Italian or Spanish masterpiece.

    This program is limited to 15 students.

    Participants who attend the Summer Arts Intensive will be considered for scholarships to attend Kennesaw State University and major in one of the disciplines within the School of Art and Design.
