Summer Art Workshop (S.A.W.)

SAW campers

Workshop Dates: June 24-30, 2018

Murray State University has an exciting new selection of classes for this year's summer art workshop. S.A.W. is a hands-on workshop that will cover the elements of art and explore for distinctly different mediums in one week's time. Students will work independently and collaboratively to produce one-of-a-kind works of art and expand upon their knowledge of studio art and art history. 

The sessions are designed to provide challenging and informational experiences for first-time participants and those who have previously attended. No high school art experience is required to attend this workshop. It is a fast-paced, cumulative learning experience for rising 9th grade students through recent high school graduates. 

This year’s workshop classes will be announced soon. At the end of the workshop students will display the work they made for parents, faculty and workshop participants.
