Summer fun with the Parsons Scholars!

Summer has been a whirlwind of happenings at the Parsons Scholars Program this year.

As recipients of the Anna Toonk Scholarship, Parsons Scholars Raquel Castillo, Roxana Santana and Andy Bell-Baltaci and Alumni Francisco Vivar, Richard Pean and Paul Gomez, traveled to Paris where they spent 4 weeks taking intensive art and design classes and exploring France.  Take a look at photos of a few of their adventures in previous posts.

Back in NY, rising senior Scholars continued to prove their commitment to their goals through the rigorous coursework of the Summer Intensive Studies program.  During this college credit course, some students confirmed their future college majors, while others were relieved to have the opportunity to narrow down their options before entering college.
Coordinator Yashua Klos holds back the emotions of watching his group of Scholars accomplish their goals.

Scholars display their accomplishments from a range of classes including Painting + Drawing, Illustration, Fashion Design and Architecture during the SIS Open Studio.

Congrats to all of our Scholars and all of your hard work! 
We look forward to the rising juniors having a great two weeks during Pre-College Academy this month!
