Summer Arts Academy at Morehead State University

The Morehead State University Summer Arts Academy nurtures students’ development in the arts in a setting that allows interaction with expert faculty and the opportunity to work with other students who share specific interests in music, theater, art and design, and writing & media. All students will select a course of study appropriate to their medium, but all will receive the same opportunities.

The Academy consists of six full days of activities, including individual and group instruction in your chosen area (music, theater, art and design, and writing & media). Recreational activities will include an art hop night, movie night, bowling night and performances/presentations by the Morehead State University Summer Arts Academy faculty. The week will conclude with a showcase of student work from all four focus areas.

In addition to the opportunity to explore and publish/perform their chosen artistic form, participating students will experience Morehead State campus life and meet current MSU students as well as faculty and staff. We will engage in practical skill development as well as explore career options in this area. If you know a student interested in becoming an English or Convergent Media major then encourage them to sign up for Writing & Media at the 2023 Summer Arts Academy!

APPLY TODAY to receive one of the limited $100 scholarships.

There is also an early bird discount of $25 for applying by May 20.
