Steve Light Scholarship

Steve Light and Christine Cincotta have established a scholarship to support attendance at our Summer Camp in Illustration. Steve grew up in New Jersey and studied illustration at Pratt Institute. After graduating he did corporate illustrations for companies such as: AT&T, Sony Films, and the New York Times Book Review. Steve then went on to design buttons that were acquired by the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum. He has since published several children’s books with various publishers, including Builders & BreakersHave you Seen My Lunch Box, and Black Bird Yellow Sun.

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
