Destinations High School Program

Winter Registration Now Open!

Destinations

Destinations is our Academic Year program for Grades 10 –12 that runs from September–May. Destinations is designed for students pursuing a creative career, or for those who want to take their art skills to a high level. Your child will shine as an accomplished and confident artist. Opportunities abound for students to explore and prepare their portfolio for a wide variety of creative futures. To get the most out of this program, we highly recommend students  attend for the full academic year. Students who attend all three years will master numerous artistic skills.
 

10th Grade
Creative
Contributions

Students participate in a weekly fine art studio supported by highly skilled instructors and surrounded by equally motivated peers. Young artists will create a body of work reflecting a deep exploration of their personal art style, and get a firsthand look at the power of contributing their artistic gifts to the community. 

11th Grade
Creative
Career Exploration

Students produce numerous high-quality finished art pieces to begin building an exemplary personal portfolio. Instructors support students to stretch, refine their work, and reflect in guided group critiques. Students will explore a wide variety of creative careers, exposing them to diverse opportunities including college, art school and non-traditional pathways. 

12th Grade
Graduate
Portfolio

Students complete and submit a robust art portfolio for college or art school applications. Instructors help with planning and pacing to build confidence and reduce stress throughout the process. Seniors graduating from Davis Studio’s Destinations program are honored at a special senior art show exhibit, dinner, and awards ceremony. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to host a solo art show, prepare an artist’s statement and conduct an artist’s talk.

Programs on automatic bank withdrawal (ACH) require a 45 day notice of cancellation in writing via email sent to info@davisstudiovt.com.
      This policy is in place because in order to retain our excellent instructors we strive to uphold long-term commitments. Sudden and unexpected fluctuations in class enrollment puts their jobs unnecessarily at risk and does not provide the stability a quality program such as our requires.
