The visual arts institutes are one-week, intensive programs designed to help student artists prepare their portfolios for college applications.
In late 2010, Interlochen Center for the Arts received an unexpected gift of nearly half a million dollars from the estate of John and Joan Herlitz to establish an endowed scholarship for visual artists and to support the construction of new visual arts studios. To those who knew John and Joan Herlitz, the gift was a continuation of their lifelong commitment to the arts and to the development and training of artists.
Interlochen Arts Camp offers a wide variety of visual arts programs, in both two and three-dimensional media. The program is housed in the Dow Center for Visual Arts.
