June is a perfect time to do something for yourself and The Cooper Union has some neat suggestions. If, for example, you’re interested in photography, think about creating a project that focuses on one of your particular interests. Our course, Developing a Personal Project, will guide you towards translating your personal vision into a coherent series of photographs that you curate with the help of the instructor and your classmates. If you are looking for a photographic challenge that calls for less structure and more serendipity, try Street Photography instead.
Those who favor the pencil or the paint brush over the lens can still spend June and July roaming New York with Drawing and Painting on Location. Collage and the City gives you the chance to explore New York in any way you choose. Then, incorporate your photographs, paintings, drawings, found objects, and other discoveries into finished art in a studio setting. Whether your personal New York is that of Weegee or F. Scott Fitzgerald, either of these courses gives you the chance to capture it in works of art.

The American system of continuing education originated at The Cooper Union with its founding in 1859. Peter Cooper, inventor, industrialist, and philanthropist, wanted to bring first-class educational opportunities to adults in New York and devoted his entire fortune to that goal. For over 150 years, The Cooper Union has maintained this tradition of outstanding courses for adults in its Department of Continuing Education.
