We invite applications from any student who meets all of the following criteria: High School Junior or Senior; Sincere interest in visual arts; Enrolled in high school (or homeschool) in the Colorado Springs area. There is no charge for workshops*, and all materials, supplies, and instruction are provided.

*each workshop’s real cost of $125, will ONLY be charged in the case of non-attendance to an accepted workshop without proper notice (7 days in advance of workshop). Parents will need to print and submit to Cottonwood their signed acknowledgement of financial responsibility in the case of non-attendance, either by mail or in person.

Please choose your workshops thoughtfully. If you have an event during a workshop weekend (family, homecoming, etc.) and are not sure if you’ll be able to attend both days, please leave the space for another student, and avoid financial obligation for non-attendance to an accepted workshop. List your top five choices, or if you have fewer than five desired workshops, simply type n/a in the remaining fields.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1ST IS THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS RECEIPT. Workshop assignments will follow immediately afterward and a workshop placement email will be sent to both the student and parent. A completed application includes the form below, Parent/Guardian consent form, and Teacher recommendation form. If you are a returning Adduce student a completed application only includes the form below and Parent/Guardian consent form.

All future contact will be via email, so please make sure the address you provide is one you check regularly, and that you allow emails from classes@cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com. Phone numbers will not be shared, nor will they be used except in time-sensitive situations.
