During the length of the program, students in grades 9-12 had hands-on training in several art mediums, in workshops facilitated by real artists and professionals. Learning will not only take place in these workshops, but through lectures given by renowned local artists both on-site at SDAI in Balboa Park and through the special opportunity to visit their studios directly.

SDAI’s Summer Teen Intensive will culminate in an exhibition at SDAI, curated by the participants. 12 San Diego high school students participated in this inaugural SDAI program. The theme is “Beneath the Surface.” 15-year-old awards-winning animator, artist, and filmmaker Perry Chen, a sophomore at Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) is among the first year program participants.
