Pre-college faculty members are outstanding professionals and seasoned educators. These dedicated working artists relish the opportunity to share their insights and experiences with the next generation of artists. Two teaching assistants who are students in MICA's nationally renowned BFA programs also staff each class.
The program is run by a professional director and two assistant directors whose only responsibility is to make sure that students have a month-long experience that is fun, educational, and safe. Working with students on a daily basis are the teaching assistants/resident counselors (TARCs), full-time MICA students who have been selected for their outgoing personalities, knowledge of the College community, and eagerness to work with up-and-coming students. The relationship between the TARCs and students is a special one—after all, it wasn’t so long ago that these undergraduates were facing the same big decisions that pre-college students face today.
