The Department of Art & Design at Austin Peay State University will be hosting College Art and Design Day/2015 on Saturday, October 17. High school art students as well as their art teachers and parents are invited to participate in this daylong exploration into college programs and careers in the visual arts.
Events will begin at 9 AM with a tour of department facilities followed by a choice of creative workshops designed to give high school students a college-level studio experience at 10 AM. Dr. Tony Morris, Associate Professor of Art History, will complete the morning’s activities with an engaging presentation titled “Identity Politics in Contemporary Art.”
After a short break for lunch, high school students, teachers, and parents are invited to attend a panel discussion, “The Job Market for Art and Design Graduates” presented by APSU art alumni and faculty. College Art and Design Day will finish with a Portfolio Review; members of the APSU art and design faculty will be on hand to review the work of individual high school students and to discuss various ways to prepare a college entrance portfolio.
We hope you will take this opportunity to investigate college degree options and career paths in the visual arts. Please join the faculty, students and alumni of the Austin Peay State University Department of Art & Design on Saturday, October 17 for College Art and Design Day / 2015.
