The Saturday Art Workshop (SAW) is a program at CCSU that offers opportunities to participating children from the Greater Hartford region to take art classes at the university. The primary purpose of SAW is that it serves as a pre-student teaching practicum for Art Education students. They serve as instructors, working with students and testing their teaching skills. The classes are instructed and designed by CCSU Art Education students accepted to the Professional Teaching Program. Each semester, SAW runs for approximately eight weeks on Saturday mornings from 9:30 a.m.-11 a.m. Participants work with a variety of media and lessons that are fun and exciting. Students who can register for SAW range in age from 5 years old (Kindergarten) through 17 years old (high school).

Limited openings are available in Fall 2015 with only four instructional classes being offered.  Current openings exist in the the 5-6 year old class and the 12+ year old classes only.  The 7-8 and 9-11 year old classes are FULL at this time.  Submitting registration forms for the 7-8 and 9-11 year old classes will place your child's name on a waiting list in the event that a position becomes available.

To register, send the official registration form along with the required fee, of $50 per student ($40 per student if more than one household family member is registered). To maintain a 12:1 student/teacher ratio, we will be capping course enrollment for each grade level. To ensure a spot for your student, early registration is recommended.  Please download the registration form or contact the Art Department Office for updated program dates, deadlines, etc. at 860-832-2620 or email the Department Secretary at specterpas@ccsu.edu.
