The Young Artist Residency Program (YAR) at Lesley University is an intensive summer art and design residency program of four-weeks of classes and art-making designed to offer a professional art college experience while living on campus.
The Young Artist Residency Program (YAR) at Lesley University is designed for high school students who will be entering their junior or senior year in the fall. This intensive summer art and design residency program of four-weeks of classes and art-making is designed to offer a professional art college experience while living on campus. It's a great opportunity to test out Lesley as a college choice. Students live in Lesley University residence halls minutes from Harvard Square in Cambridge and study art and design with college professors and graduates of the College of Art and Design in our Boston studios, just across the Charles River.
