Museum of Art / Ft. Lauderdale to Hold Merit Scholarship Competition for Creative Summer Art Academy
The Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale, Nova Southeastern University, is encouraging budding artists to attend its 2010 Creative Summer Art Academy (CSAA) by holding a Merit Scholarship Competition. The competition, open to students entering grades 1-12 and interested in the Creative Summer Art Academy, will take place on Saturday, April 17 from 10 am to 1 pm at the Museumâ€™s Studio School.
Check-in, as well as a meet-and-speak with staff and fine art instructors, will be held from 9:15-10 a.m. Participants will be separated into grade groups 1-4, 5-8 and 9-12, and will then have up to three hours to create one drawing during the competition. Faculty members and staff will be present. Deadline for RSVPâ€™s is noon April 16th and must include student name and grade they will be entering for 2010/2011 school year. RSVPâ€™s are required and should be made by emailing Education1@moafl.org. A Scholarship Competition Registration Form will be available online by April 1, 2010 and must be turned in upon check-in.
While students are engaged in the competition, parents are invited to enjoy complimentary refreshments in the Museum CafÃ© and a docent-led tour at 11 a.m. (parents will not have access to the Studio School during the competition).
Funds for the merit and need-based scholarships were raised in part during the Museumâ€™s National Art Festival held in January 2010. In 2009, scholarships were awarded to more than 75 of 200 applicants interested in the arts. Winners will be notified within three weeks of this yearâ€™s competition.
All competitors who are not awarded a scholarship will receive a 10% discount off of Creative Summer Art Academy tuition fees.
Additional instructor-recommended scholarships are available throughout the five, 2-week camp sessions based on merit and class performance. Running from June 14-August 20, Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., CSAA offers students focused instruction by local, professional fine art instructors. Many past high school attendees have gone on to receive coveted scholarships and awards and attend prestigious art schools around the US.
Academy instruction is based on the following:
Painting, drawing, and design are explored using a variety of materials, with an emphasis on creativity, exploration, art vocabulary, and experimentation.
Subjects covered include design, painting and drawing. Workshops build on the elements of composition, vocabulary, creativity, and the overall process involved with creating a work of art. Set Design will be included in the curriculum during sessions III & IV in conjunction with Musical Theatre Production class.
Students will be introduced to Anatomy & Structure (study and analysis of the skeleton and muscular structure of the human figure) using a variety of live models and reference to the skeleton. Students will learn proportions of the human skeleton, as well as individual muscle identification. Students will draw and paint from models performing dynamic gestural poses and extended poses. Instructors encourage the development of the studentâ€™s technical drawing skills and ultimately their creative expression.
The cost of CSAA is $375 per session for Museum members (Reciprocal level or higher) and $425 for non-members. Multiple session and child discounts are available. In addition to session costs, morning and/or afternoon care is offered; price TBA. Those who register between April 1st and April 17th and do not receive a scholarship will receive a 10% early registration discount.
