Southeast Missouri State University offers an opportunity to create, engage and learn in a wide variety of media for children through adults in its 2018 Art Academy Workshops beginning in June.

The majority of workshops will be held in Southeast’s River Campus Art Studios under the guidance of highly qualified master art instructors and art professors with the assistance of Southeast art education students. Classes are limited to 15 students.

The summer will culminate with the students’ work to be displayed and celebrated at venues in August. The Young Potter and Children’s Ceramic student work will be on exhibit for pick up at the Ceramics Studio, located at 835 Broadway on the corner of Pacific and Broadway, on Friday, Aug. 3, from 5-8 p.m. Other student work will be on exhibit at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri on North Spanish Street in Cape Girardeau through the month of August. An opening reception will be on Friday, Aug. 3, from 5-9 p.m.

“The summer Art Academy encourages students to develop their ideas through exploration, creative problem-solving, visual thinking, and critical thinking strategies, all of which are valued in our contemporary culture,” said Carol Horst, art education instructor at Southeast.

Caroline Kahler, chair of the Southeast Department of Art, added, “The summer Art Academy offers Cape Girardeau and the surrounding communities art experiences to enhance personal artistic skills with qualified professionals in the art field.”
