Out of the Box

July 7-9, 2020

The College of Visual and Performing Arts at UMass Dartmouth presents our annual Summer Arts LAB.

This interdisciplinary program offers students the opportunity to explore aspects of art and design, and how it engages the body, space, and community.

OUT OF THE BOX Summer Arts Lab will be an online experience but not necessarily all done on the computer. Participants will need access to Zoom. A box of supplies will be mailed to each participant. Zoom sessions will occur from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day, culminating in an online exhibition. Artist talks, studio tours, online demonstrations, and social engagement opportunities will keep participants active while building the creative thought process, and making work that could be included in an art school portfolio.
