Summer Arts Academy runs June 9 - 15

Morehead State University’s Summer Arts Academy (SAA) will take place June 9-15 on campus. 

This year’s Academy will host nearly 50 students from Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and Indiana. Open to incoming freshmen through graduating seniors in high school, SAA is a six-day residential 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, and art and design. Recreational activities will include an “Art Hop” night, movie night, bowling night and academy picnic. Other evening activities scheduled include performances and presentations by SAA faculty.  

“We are excited to have these students on campus. What makes the Summer Arts Academy unique from other camps of this type is an individually centered approach to ensuring the quality of instruction that cannot be matched elsewhere. Our students will spend up to six hours a day with SAA faculty who are leaders in their fields,” said SAA Director and Professor of Music Greg Wing. 

SAA is partially funded through the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and the School of Creative Arts (Department of Music, Theatre and Dance and Department of Art and Design).  

Students will have an opportunity to share in their mediums during the final Celebration Festival on Saturday, June 15, at 1 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public. 

Tuition for SAA is $525, and scholarships are available. Applications will be accepted through June 1.
