Art Day word cloud

You and your select junior and senior art students are invited to participate in Art Day at SFA on Friday, November 10, 2017. This event will consist of a full-length, college-level art studio class tailored to give your students a taste of college life as an art major at Stephen F. Austin State University.

We will offer courses in the following areas:

  • Advanced Figure Drawing
  • Ceramics
  • Digital Media
  • Drawing
  • Film Making
  • Graphic Design
  • Metals
  • Painting
  • Photography
  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture

Your students will spend the day learning technical and creative art strategies taught by experienced SFA art faculty. Your college-bound junior or senior will gain valuable hands-on experience leading to better-informed college selection decisions. Teachers will have an opportunity to meet and speak with our faculty directly. Art Day at SFA will acquaint you with the excellent educational opportunities that exist in Nacogdoches.

Student selection for Art Day at SFA is at the discretion of your faculty and administration; however, we urge you to select only your most sincere and serious upper-level art students. Artistic ability and genuine interest should be of primary consideration.

Limit your attendees to five of the most qualified art students. All studio areas are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If your faculty is unable to attend, students and their parents may participate, provided the school grants written permission and documentation is faxed to Art Day at SFA at 936.468.4041.
