The Professional Program is a highly selective course of study. Entrance is based on artistic merit, as determined by portfolio review and written application. Promising candidates are interviewed.
MINIMUM COURSE REQUIREMENTS
Drawing: 25 Credit Hours
Painting: 55 Credit Hours
The Full-Time Professional Program requires four-years of study. In addition to courses required, which count toward the Certificate of Achievement, students are required to attend art history lectures, discussion groups, museum tours, and participate in school exhibitions.
Total Hours Required for Certificate of Achievement: 80 Credit Hours
A semester hour of credit represents three hours of classroom studio studies each week for a period of 18-19 weeks. Semesters are designated as Fall (September through January) and Spring (February through June).
Because of Studio Incamminati’s unique curriculum, methods of teaching, and intimate size, students receive continuous feedback on their progress. The faculty evaluates student competency during mid and end-of-semester evaluations and during individual and group critiques. Due to the progressive nature of the curriculum, each level of competency is carefully monitored. Students receive the maximum benefit of feedback from the entire faculty.
Professional Program students receive a satisfactory or unsatisfactory grade, based on mid and end-of-semester evaluations. Students who receive an unsatisfactory course grade will be required to repeat that class. Advancement through the Professional Program is determined by evaluation results, and attendance. Students are required to be present at least 90% of their approved schedule.
Students who do not meet these attendance requirements will receive written notification. If poor attendance continues, students will be asked to repeat classes, or a full year of the program, or may be dismissed from Studio Incamminati. Student lateness will be recorded and prorated as absences.
Studio Incamminati reserves the right to require the withdrawal of any student whose educational development is unsatisfactory or whose conduct is deemed harmful to the school by the administration. Students forced to withdrawal will be subject to loss of financial assistance. For complete information on school policies, refer to www.StudioIncamminati.org/pro_program.php
TRANSFER CREDIT POLICY
Because of its unique curriculum, Studio Incamminati does not accept transfer credits from other educational institutions.
