Watauga Arts Academy at Austin Peay State University
Spend two weeks of the summer producing what you and your friends have only imagined; create characters that move, run, and pop out of books, across computer screens, onto the sides of tall buildings, and into the real time world of lights, sound, and action. Sharpen your skills, stretch your imagination, engage with your peers — create narratives that cross disciplines.
The visual art workshops at the Watauga Arts Academy will begin with traditional skill‐building exercises in the disciplines of drawing, printmaking, photography, and computer imaging. The focus of the workshops, however, will quickly transition to the world of contemporary storytelling through animation, multimedia performance, creative book arts, and narrative web design. In today’s creative marketplace, successful visual storytellers must be collaborative and interdisciplinary. At Watauga, as you build a stronger understanding of your craft, you will have many opportunities to work cooperatively across disciplines with the latest technology.
