Boot Camp-Middle & High School

 Art Boot camp: June 9th 2017 - August 25, 2017
Writing/Debate boot camp: Week of  6/26, 8/7, 8/14
Age 12yr - 16yr 

Art Boot Camp:
    This course is designed for middle school students who enjoy drawing and painting, and like to boost their fine art skills. For those students who would like to explore the possibility of utilizing their fine art skills/talent to take AP Studio art in high school, to enhance their college application, or considering major in visual art. In this program, students will immerse themselves in art with other similar age students everyday during the week. Our hands-on instructions will help students to develop various techniques and sharpen their observational skill. The professional instructor will encourage and also challenge the students' current level of skills. The curriculum will be tailored to each student's needs.

This course will be taught by professional artists who have college level teaching experiences 

              From our past experience, high school students often realize that they need better skills to build a competitive art portfolio. So it is our intention to help current middle school students to put time and effort on their fine art training now.

Schedule: Monday to Friday 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Students can come in 8:00 am and stay till 6:00 pm. Many students choose to work on their homework or volunteer in our summer camp to build up their leadership skills after 1:00 pm as community services.

Debate and Writing Boot Camp:

Weeks:  6/26, 8/7, 8/14

Academic Writing:

Students will learn the essential elements of persuasive writing, including the use of logos, pathos, and ethos appeals. In addition, they will learn to incorporate counter arguments and rhetorical devices commonly used by world leaders and people who have changed history with their ideas.


This class will cover the basics of logical argumentation, debate competition format, and the philosophical foundations of social and moral dilemmas. Students will learn to identify biases and faulty arguments, in addition to writing cases and participating in several debates with different topics. Though debates focus on complicated issues, each debater must be able to argue from different perspectives by thinking creatively and flexibly.
