SAC Academy extends the knowledge, resources, and expertise of the School of Arts and Communication beyond the traditional Oregon State University campus population through pre-college programs in the arts, ensembles, and professional development programs.
SAC Academy provides participants with two weeks of accelerated instruction in a university environment. In addition to the in-class learning experience, student education is supplemented with visiting artist lectures, workshops and excursions. A fundamental goal is to assist students in the development of a portfolio that can be used to apply to a university or art institute of their choosing. The program concludes with a portfolio and performance review, a final exhibition and an award ceremony.
The program will be held on Oregon State University’s campus in Corvallis, Oregon. Within the program, students will interact with other art students from around the world as well as a diverse range of college faculty on a daily basis. Class opportunities include Drawing and Modeling the Human Figure, Sculpture, Painting, Printmaking, and Photography.
