The School will not be operating Summer at Chase programs during the summer of 2015. The School is, however, operating a small-scale arts program.
The summer arts series will give students the opportunity to have fun, create and explore the studio arts. The open studio allows for students of all levels and abilities to work cooperatively together. Students will develop original ideas, work from their natural environment, and study famous works/artists.
