Art is an essential component of the PUPP Summer Institute and is deeply connected to both each summer’s broader theme and PUPP’s goal of developing cultural capital among scholars.  The PUPP Art Studio course allows scholars to make art in a safe and supportive studio environment.  The course introduces scholars to the materials, techniques, concepts, and processes essential to understanding visual arts and the role of the artist, through a series of projects, readings, class critiques, videos, slide presentations, and field trips to major cultural institutions in the region.  The Art Studio course is enhanced by a deep partnership between PUPP and Princeton University Art Museum.

Over their time in PUPP, Scholars visit the Princeton University Art Museum and explore the public art that is installed throughout Princeton’s campus.
