Art Academy, Secondary Level

Color pencils

The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art is happy to announce the first Art Academy for secondary children ages 11 – 17 and entering grades 7 – 12 in the 2022 – 23 school year.

We are excited to be able to work with secondary aged artists to provide in-depth artistic training in a studio setting for the first time. The Secondary Art Academy begins June 27 and end July 1, 2022.

Each day student artists will work with art teachers for a real art studio experience from 9am until 2pm. Secondary artists will enjoy a short art lesson each morning and then work on specific skills and artworks they have chosen each morning before we break for lunch at the university cafeteria (included in fees). Afternoon studio time allows students to work independently and with teachers to develop 2 – 4 artworks.

An exhibition of all artworks will be held on July 1 at 3pm.

Fees include all art supplies, snacks, lunch, and exhibition expenses. Registration begins April 25th and closes on June 3th. It is important that secondary art academy students indicate which art mediums they are most interested in on the registration form. Fees received before June 1 are $200. After June 1st fees are $220.
