VCUQatar invites secondary school seniors and juniors from all high schools in Qatar to experience a day of hands-on studio classes in the fine arts and design. Workshops will include portrait drawing, two-dimensional design, experiments in texture, visual communication, along with learning about use of light and color in buildings and many more areas.
The Saturday session on February 23 starting at 8:30AM will also include a segment on careers in design and the admission procedures for VCUQatar. All of the studio classes will be held at the VCUQatar campus located in the Education City Campus on Al Luqta Street.
"This day is always a lot of fun for everyone involved from the faculty to the high school students. It is very useful for anyone seriously thinking about coming to VCUQatar as because admissions personnel will walk students through the application process." said Valerie Jeremijenko Assistant Dean of Student Affairs.
All classes will be conducted in English so students get an authentic experience. The VCUQatar application deadline is March 30, 2008. Applications from both men and women are encouraged.
