Summer Arts Academy

The 2022 Summer Arts Academy will be held June 12 – 18, 2022.

SAA 2022 Application - Applications CLOSED

The Morehead State University Summer Arts Academy exists to nurture students’ development in the arts in a setting which allows interaction with expert faculty and the opportunity to work with other students who share specific interest in music, theater, art and design, and writing.

All students will select a course of study appropriate to their individual 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). Recreational activities will include an art hop night, movie night, bowling night and performances/presentations by the Morehead State University Summer Arts Academy faculty.

Directions to Baird Music Hall


  • Music: Group lessons and masterclasses will be given during the designated times each day. Students will learn specific techniques to take with them which will improve their individual musicianship!
  • Theatre: Theatre students will use a variety of art forms throughout the week; writing, craft making, photography, movement and dance, performance and language arts will all be used to help the student develop a strong sense of self awareness and navigate the terrain of their minds, hearts and surroundings.
  • Art and Design: Students who enroll in Art and Design will have the unique opportunity to work in four areas during the week.
  • Writing: Taught by Dr. Deanna Mascle, students who enroll in writing will focus on journalism, specifically longform journalism, a branch of journalism focused on longer, more involved pieces, which often takes the form of creative nonfiction or narrative journalism.

The Summer Arts Academy is sponsored by the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance.
