MOREHEAD – Morehead State University’s Summer Arts Academy (SAA) will be on campus June 5-11.
This year’s Academy will host nearly 60 students from California, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and Indiana. Open to all incoming freshman through graduating seniors in high school, the Summer Arts Academy is a six-day residence arts camp.
The Academy exists to nurture students’ development in the arts in a setting which allows interaction with expert faculty and the opportunity to work with other students who share specific interests in music, theatre, art and design and creative writing. Recreational activities will include an “Art Hop” night, movie night, bowling night and Academy picnic. Other evening activities are scheduled in the SAA participant’s medium including performances /presentations by MSU Summer Art Academy faculty.
“We are excited to have the students on campus. What makes the Summer Arts Academy unique from other camps of this type is we initiated an individually centered approach to ensuring the quality of instruction cannot be matched elsewhere. Our students will spend up to six hours a day with SAA faculty who are leaders in their field,” said Greg Wing, professor of music (trumpet) and academy director.
The Summer Arts Academy is partially funded through the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and the School of Music, Theatre and Dance.
Students will have an opportunity to share in their mediums during the final Celebration Festival on Saturday, June 11, at 1 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public.
