A Look Back: ‘2017 Summer Arts Academy’

Jun 15, 2017

Morehead State University hosted nearly 60 students from Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and Indiana for its Summer Arts Academy, June 4-10.

The Academy consisted of six full days of activities, including individual and group instruction in a chosen area – music, art and design, theater and creative writing.

Evening activities included performances/presentations by MSU’s School of Music, Theatre and Dance faculty, an "Art Hop" night showcasing works of faculty and SAA art and design students, a bowling night, and other evening activities taught by SAA faculty specific to the student’s area.

“What made this a unique experience was the focus on the individual having specific study in their medium (music, art and design and creative writing) several hours a day with faculty,” said Greg Wing, Summer Arts Academy director. “Participants had an opportunity to improve their skills in each area and interact with other students.”
