The four-day, hands-on design, media arts and culinary workshop is an opportunity for high school students to try out a career in the applied arts as a part of a production team, working side-by-side with industry professionals, recreating the elements from the original Star Wars movie. Open to high school seniors and juniors, Summer Studio Workshop 2007 is June 26-29.

Highlights include:

-- Working with authentic footage and elements of the original Star Wars movie.

-- Special guest speakers: Academy Award-Winning Visual Effects Artists Phil Tippett and Ken Ralston, who worked on Star Wars.

-- Authentic re-creations of Star Wars characters including: Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, R2D2 and C3PO.

-- Field trips to industry companies in selected specializations.

-- Hollywood-style world premiere and wrap party and other social activities.

"This annual workshop is The Art Institute's take on the traditional college visit," said Melinda Lester, Dean of Academic Affairs at the school. "High school students from around the nation will have the remarkable opportunity to get a taste of what a creative education entails.

"The workshop has been wildly successful since its inception in 2001," said Lester. "It is a life-changing, eye-opening week for most of these kids and many attendees later make the decision to study applied arts in college."

Participants can choose from one of the following specialized workshops:

-- Advertising students will create a Star Wars 30th anniversary publicity campaign.

-- Culinary Arts students will prepare Star Wars-themed foods throughout the week, as well as Star Wars-themed catering for the premiere party.
