STAA is committed to providing an ambitious, multi-media educational program for artists of all ages. STAA’s faculty is comprised of working artists, current or former art educators at the high school or university level, and visiting Artists-in-Residence from around the U.S.A. Instructors are rigorously vetted to ensure students receive the highest quality art instruction in the classical tradition of mentorship, providing guidance in studio art production and critique.
Three youth art camps are held throughout the year: Easter Art Camp each spring, Summer Art Camp in June, Theater Camp in July, and special workshops throughout the year. We also host Talented Art Exhibitions to showcase the talent of the region and teach young artists about the many facets of exhibiting and selling their work.
