About the Program

Will Snow Farm Summer be open in 2021?

What “type” of kids come to Snow Farm? 

All the students who come to Snow Farm have one thing in common – they are passionate about art! Year after year, we see students form a safe, welcoming and accepting community where they quickly make important friendships.

Do you have a visiting day? 

Our COVID-19 Containment Plan allows only people participating in programs to be on campus. Therefore, visiting days have been eliminated. 

Can I get school credit for being in the program? 

If your school has a process by which you can apply for credit, we will be glad to provide them any documentation they request. Even if you don't get credit at your high school, please keep in mind that at Snow Farm Summer, you'll recieve a minimum of six hours a day of studio instruction. You'll develop expertise in two areas of study.  Many students say the experience at Snow Farm feels like a semester of college, and students who come for three or four years, acquire skills that can place them out of college courses.
