KSU Visual Arts Summer Programs
Summer Visual Arts Intensive
Please join us in 2020!
Registration is now closed.
Spend a week with us in 2020 and you will work in your chosen concentration, including digital animation, painting, photo/video, sequential art, electronic illustration, mixed media, or sculpture, led by our KSU faculty and college students. You will further develop your skills and creativity and strengthen your portfolio. A pin-up show at the end of the week will highlight your work. The program runs Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and includes lunch each day in KSU's award-winning dining hall, The Commons.
Summer Visual Arts Intensive Behavior Policy
Because we want the Summer Arts Intensives to have the most conducive environment for learning and fun, we ask registered students to be attentive to instructors and staff, engage in activities and respect others’ privacy and safety.
The following are examples of unacceptable behavior that may result in automatic dismissal from the program:
- Refusing to participate in activities or cooperate with staff
- Using profanity, vulgarity or obscenity
- Stealing or damaging personal or KSU property
- Disrupting a program or presentation
- Leaving the group without permission
- Endangering the health and safety of students and/or staff
- Using illicit drugs, alcohol or tobacco
- Engaging in sexual conduct of any kind
- Teasing, making fun of or bullying of other students or staff
- Fighting or physical violence of any kind*
*Physical violence or bullying toward another student or staff member will result in immediate dismissal from the program.
Students who have been documented for habitual behavioral infractions with no positive response to corrective actions and/or intervention may also be dismissed from the program. Summer Arts Intensive fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable if a registered student is sent home for disciplinary reasons.
When a registered student does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following actions as behavior problems progress.
1. Program instructors/assistants will redirect the student to more appropriate behavior.
2. If inappropriate behavior continues, the student will be reminded of behavior guidelines and will be asked by the Program Manager to commit to correcting their behavior.
3. If a registered student does not meet the expectations to correct inappropriate behavior, he/she will be referred back to the Program Manager and a parent or guardian will be notified.
4. If inappropriate behavior continues after the programming staff has intervened, as a final step the student will be dismissed from the program.
Bullying is inexcusable in any program at Kennesaw State, and we have a firm policy against all types of bullying. Each student is expected to treat all other students with respect and to help each other achieve the best Summer Art Intensive experience possible. When instances of bullying are made aware to our staff, we will address them seriously.
Computer Usage Policy
Some Summer Arts Intensive activities involve computer usage. These computers have Internet access, and although we strive to preserve the learning environment of the classroom and to safeguard the students from inappropriate websites and chatrooms, we cannot absolutely prevent the permeation of inappropriate websites or pop-up advertisement windows. We encourage parents and guardians to discuss with their child(ren) what is appropriate and inappropriate Internet use.
