Suffolk Summer Programs

Summer in Boston @Suffolk University
This year, Summer at Suffolk is more than just a season.  It's an opportunity to expand your interests by taking courses that have been carefully selected to give you an academic advantage—or a professional edge. 

Summer at Suffolk is designed for everyone, with graduate and undergraduate courses, special programs for high school students and a variety of certificate and non-degree programs.  You can enroll as a Suffolk student, a visiting student, or an international student, and we'll give you the same warm welcome to our centrally located Beacon Hill campus, in the heart of historic Boston. 

Of course there's more than just history here.  Boston has New England's most vibrant night life and the World Champion Boston Red Sox to complement our natural attractions—like great beaches, spectacular 4th of July fireworks on the Esplanade, or a leisurely ferry ride to the harbor islands.  And at night, after watching a movie under the stars on the banks of the Charles River, you'll come home to our new state-of-the-art residence hall with 24-hour security, air conditioning, computer labs, broadband, exercise facilities and on-campus dining.

We invite you to explore our web site, and discover what summer really has to offer

2-Dimensional Design

This class will introduce you to a series of projects intended to illustrate the fundamentals of design.  The importance of line, shape, positive negative interaction, texture and collage will be explored.  Media from pencil and cut paper to magazine collage will be used.  An overview of the importance of design in the fine arts and in the world of commercial graphic design will be discussed using slides and primary sources.  The goal of the course is to give you a solid understanding of the basics of design through projects that can also be used in your portfolio. 


This class will use still life, outdoor drawing, museum study and portraiture to explore a full range of drawing issues.  We'll begin with the fundamentals of structure and composition and move through a variety of materials and projects to engage you in drawing as a highly responsive medium.  The goal of the course is to develop an awareness of good technique, familiarity with different media and a sense of individual style. 


The painting studio will explore various techniques to develop creative expression.  Observations of still life and landscape will introduce you to ideas about representation and abstraction within the painting genre.  Acrylic paint medium will be the focus of our exploration as will gaining a general knowledge of what color theory is about.  Our goal in this studio is to gain some technical proficiency and understanding for this wonderfully versatile medium. 

3-Dimensional Design

In three-dimensional design you will explore several materials that hold basic design and sculptural applications.  Projects are hands-on, fun and idea-based, so they add an interesting three-dimensional point of view to your portfolio.  In 3-D we will use structure and form as the starting points for some exciting projects that will enhance your understanding of various materials.
