We are now accepting applications for the 2014 Watauga Arts Academy. See Admissions for deadlines and application instructions.
Hosted by Austin Peay State University in cooperation with the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, the Watauga Arts Academy is a two-week residential summer program for students who have completed grades 9-12.
Watauga Arts Academy offers workshops in four program areas: Art, Dance, Music, and Theatre. During the two-week summer camp residency, students will hone their artistic and technical talents in hands-on application of skills and knowledge through interaction with world-class faculty.
Activities will include master classes, individual and small-group lessons, large-group activities and rehearsals, performances and exhibitions by faculty, and social activities. Each program will culminate with performances or exhibitions where students can share the work they have done during the camp.
While much time will be spent in classes and rehearsals in a student’s specific area, they will also have the opportunity to work with participants and staff in the other areas through a variety of interdisciplinary activities, focusing on cross-curricular connections between the four program areas.
