The Blue Ridge Summer Institute for Young Artists
Introduction
BLUR is a co-ed, residential summer arts program for high school students located on the 3,250-acre campus of Sweet Briar College, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

Why “Blur”? Because the program is designed for you to work deeply within your own art form—creative writing, theatre or visual art—and also to collaborate with artists in other fields, blurring the boundaries between the arts to imagine new ways of seeing, thinking and creating.

While in residence on Sweet Briar’s picturesque campus—ranked among the most beautiful in the country—students are inspired by the natural world and aided by technology. Each participant receives an iPad to use whenever and wherever inspiration strikes: in the studio, in the campus art galleries, on a hiking trail or on the banks of Sweet Briar Lake. 

New studies show that creativity is best nurtured through collaboration, so at BLUR students spend two-thirds of their time working with master teachers in the “home” studio writing, making visual art or acting. They spend the other third working in an entirely different medium, collaborating with professional artists and with their peers—using iPad applications and traditional materials—to create exhibits and performances inspired by Sweet Briar’s rich natural landscape. 

All students work with members of Endstation Theatre Company, Sweet Briar’s professional theatre troupe-in-residence, as they design sets, run rehearsals and edit scripts for Endstation’s Blue Ridge Summer Theatre Festival, staged on locations throughout the College campus.
