ASHLAND, Ohio – The department of art + design at Ashland University is offering a free college campus studio experience for current high school students with an interest in pursuing art on Saturday, Feb. 25. The event will be held in the Center for the Arts (331 College Ave.) from 9:15 a.m.-3 p.m., with lunch and all art materials provided.

Experiences may include sculpture, printmaking, digital art and graphic design, painting, ceramics and figure drawing. Students can attend two workshops based on their interests and availability.

This event highlights AU’s art + design program, which offers a comprehensive and contemporary approach to the art field. Students will have the opportunity to learn from experienced college instructors who also are working artists, meet other students with a serious interest in art, learn or finesse existing skills, investigate a new medium or area, experience a classroom studio work environment and learn about what college art students do after graduation.

Interested high school students can apply for this experience at or visit the Coburn Gallery Facebook page. The deadline is Feb. 13.
