Event Description

Audition for Summer Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain Full Scholarships for All Accepted Students OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., -- The Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain (OSAI) is currently accepting online applications and scheduling auditions for the state’s premier arts academy for high school students. Held June 9-24, the program is taught by nationally renowned artists and offers instruction in acting, chorus, creative writing, dance, drawing & painting, film & video, orchestra, and photography. Every accepted student automatically receives a full scholarship to the program. Auditions are held from January 13-February 17, with scheduling now open at oaiquartz.org. Auditions will be held in 11 cities across the state: Altus, Alva, Ardmore, Bartlesville, Edmond, Enid, Idabel, Oklahoma City, Owasso, Tahlequah, and Tulsa. Accepted students spend two weeks studying with award-winning faculty from across the United States. Former OSAI faculty members have included winners of the Pulitzer Prize and the Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards. This year’s faculty includes Pulitzer Prize winner and United State Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith, who will give a public presentation and work with creative writing students as a guest artist. Other faculty artists include André Tyson, a former principal dancer and company teacher with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and printmaker James Bailey, co-founder of the Annual Day of the Dead Steamroller Print Project. “OSAI contributed immensely to my growth as an artist and helped me to see things in my art that I hadn't seen before. I now have more confidence in my work and see the potential in myself to achieve greatness,” said Avery Underwood, 2017 photography student. To attend OSAI, applicants must be enrolled in an Oklahoma public school, private school, or home-school program and must be 15 years old by September 1, 2018. Graduating seniors are eligible.

The Oklahoma Arts Institute is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1977, with a mission to provide exceptional multidisciplinary arts experiences that develop individual talent and inspire a lifelong passion for the arts. In addition to the Summer Arts Institute, OAI administers a series of continuing education workshops for adults every fall. Full Scholarships for All Accepted Students
