PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Two Philadelphia educational institutions are teaming up to give students more choices.
This fall, Chestnut Hill College will resume its Bachelor of Arts Art Studio major with help from Studio Incamminati at 12th and Callowhill Streets in Philadelphia.
Studio executive director Jay Pennie says his school offers non-credit classes in contemporary realist art.
“Studio Incamminati students, if they wish to, can participate in their Bachelor of Arts program so they can earn a degree from Chestnut Hill College while taking our classes, so all of our classes will be accepted as transfer credits to the school,” Pennie explains.
Chestnut Hill Students will take certain art courses taught by professional artists on the Incamminati campus.
He says it gives co-eds at both institutions the chance to broaden their education.
