Studio Incamminati events such as student and alumni exhibitions, painting and drawing demonstrations, and scholarly presentations further the school's mission of teaching and inspiring artists.

In their lifelong pursuit of art, artists often focus on the "hows" of acquiring skills and knowledge, but not the "whys," "wheres" and "whats." "Why do you create?” “Where do you apply your skills?” "What images are vital to produce?” In this series of hour-long evening talks, internationally renowned thought leaders discuss personal creative philosophies in a thought-provoking conversation on professional practice. All presentations take place in Studio Incamminati's fifth-floor studio. The cost is $10. ALL AREA ART STUDENTS ARE INVITED TO ATTEND AT NO CHARGE. HOWEVER, THEY MUST REGISTER ONLINE AND DISPLAY A VALID STUDENT ID AT THE DOOR.
