A. Lawrence Jenkens, PhD of UNCG Comes to Guiyang

Professor Jenkens, Department Head & Professor of Art History at The University of North Carolina, Greensboro came to Guiyang in the end of March to recruit Guiyang students of art and design to come to Greensboro for one week of intensive art and design experience. Professor Jenkens is has an AB, from Harvard University and an
MA, and Ph.D, from the  Institute of Fine Arts, NY University. See: http://www.uncg.edu/art/faculty/jenkens.html

The summer camp will accept 8th to 12th grade students for college level studio art instruction and exciting interdisiplinary arts experiences at the UNCG campus. Actually three camps are scheduled:

  1. Visual Art Camp
  2. Interior Architecture
  3. Film Making

The $520 tuition fee covers room, board, and college level instruction for six nights and seven days.  There are medical check requirements and parent permission paperwork, however, it is possible for students to attend these camps at a very reasonable price.

Here is a copy of the flyer:

This seems to be a great chance for Guiyang students to get a taste of college life in the USA, and have access to the University’s faculty and guidance councilors. I have often been asked what university requirements are for Chinese students, and I am not qualified to speak on behalf of actual universities in the USA. This is a chance for students to get answers to there questions, as well as college level training in an area of the arts that they are interested in.

The summer camp goes from July 12 to July 18. Questions can be directed to Dr. Jenkens at:  aljenken@uncg.edu .  If I can be of help, please contact me at johnsporter@gmail.com .

Detailed information and an online application form is at: https://store.nexternal.com/uncg/summer-art–design-camp-2015-c243.aspx .

It is my hope to go  to see this camp during the summer, so I may be able to cooperate with local people that want to go.
