The Summer Arts Academy is a series of one week classes that will provide a creative and innovative stepping stone for artistically inclined Oklahoma middle school students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades in a variety of visual art disciplines. Students must be in grades 6-8 during the 2014-15 school year.  

Classes will be held at the Hardesty Arts Center in the middle of downtown Tulsa’s Brady Arts District.  Fondly referred to as AHHA, the Hardesty Arts Center provides state-of-the-art equipment and facilities while just a few steps from the doors of surrounding galleries and museums.  

Summer Arts Academy at AHHA provides comprehensive instruction with the goal of visual arts immersion during each session. Small class sizes allow professional teaching artists to provide individual guidance and inspire confidence, as well as to help students explore technique and analyze artwork. Students will leave with new friends, a fun experience, and new skills to propel them forward in their own artistic pursuits.
