2. The Summer
Bridge Program is for high school students who are interested in art.
Program participants will stay at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA)
in Santa Fe, NM for three weeks during the summer to engage their creative
side and brush up on math and English skills. The theme for the program is
“Water, the Source of Life.” Water has physical, emotional,
metaphorical, and spiritual meanings important to humankind, with special
meanings for tribal peoples everywhere. The impact of climate change, water
pollution, water scarcity, and water as commodity will all be explored.
Students and faculty will explore water through multiple lenses: cultural,
academic, creative, health, and environment. They will gain deeper
understanding and greater respect for our interrelationship with this life
source. Application Deadline is April 25, 2014.
