Independent Study

In-Sight is offering and independent study options throughout the summer. Students choose a topic and plan a course of study in cooperation with an instructor, who offers guidance and makes sure that the student stays on track and completes projects.

*Students must talk to an In-Sight Staff Member about this option before registering.


Rebel Designers Intensive

July 22-26, 12-4pm

Ages 11-18

At some point in your life you’ve probably noticed a problem where the fix was obvious to you. Maybe it was a door that opened the wrong way. Maybe it was a road sign that was poorly painted. But, like most people, you probably saw this design problem, grumbled to yourself, and did nothing. What can you do? Students in this intensive will be learning about “guerilla public service” and how the intersection of creativity, community, and social impact can create a world designed to benefit everyone. 


Analog photo: Large Format portraits

Aug 19-23, 12-4pm

Ages 14-18

Cameras have become so available that most of us have one in our pocket at all times, making it quick and easy to get a photograph anywhere, anytime. In this class we will slow the process down and use large format analog film cameras to make portraits of people on the streets of Brattleboro.


Digital photo 2: Street photography

July 29-Aug 2, 12-4pm

Ages 15-18

There are so many interesting things happening on the streets of downtown Brattleboro. In this class, students will take their digital photography skills to the next level and learn to take a closer look as everyday life unfolds around them on the street.


Cyanotype workshop

July 18-19

Ages 11-18

This two-day workshop will introduce students to the 19th century alternative process of cyanotypes. The signature blue images are easy and fun to make, using the sun as a light source for printing. The creative applications of this process are limitless, and it is an easy way to get started making images.
