WHAT IS CSSSA SUMMER ART SCHOOL

The California State Summer School for the Arts, also referred to as CSSSA, “is a rigorous, preprofessional, month-long training program in the visual and performing arts, creative writing, animation and film for talented artists of high school age.”

 

“CSSSA provides a supportive environment in which students hone acquired skills and explore new techniques and ideas for an intense and exciting learning experience.”

 

“The school was created by the California Legislature, and held its first session in 1987. Its purpose is to provide a training ground for future artists who wish to pursue careers in the arts and entertainment industries in California.”

 

“California residents enrolled in grades nine through twelve may apply to attend CSSSA; twenty are admitted each year. Participants are selected in the spring, on the basis of their talent and creativity as demonstrated through assignments and teacher recommendations.”

While attending Oam Studios, you will have access to our art teachers, the art studio, supplies and our organizational skills so that you can achieve your goals.

 

Our art teachers are dedicated and come from several different artistic backgrounds. With more professional points of views and years of experience at your side, your art work will tremendously improve.

 

We have amazing art supplies and tools at your disposal. This includes oil paints, ceramics, kiln access, computer graphics programs, and much more.

 

We will organize, advise, & guide you so that you are clear on your goals and due dates. We will utilize Kanban, Gantt charts, and calendars to keep you organized so that you can efficiently meet your deadlines.

 


LEARN NEW TECHNIQUES AS WE GO ALONG

It can be beneficial to have a variety of mediums and artistic styles displayed in your CSSSA application & art portfolio. Depending on the requirements of the CSSSA, we will make sure that you will learn any techniques that are required by the application and that the you may not be familiar with..

 

In the process, we may discover that you succeed more at a different art technique or medium that you had not previously had experience with. You will have every opportunity to learn more about art and the different materials of art.
