NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS - Registrations are now being accepted for the Summer Art Academy offered by the Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art. The two-week camp will meet Monday through Friday, June 8 through 19. Students in kindergarten through sixth grade may enroll in the classes that include drawing, painting, photography and sculpture.

"The academy offers an exciting introduction to the visual arts and an immersion into specific media," said Gary Parker, SFA art instructor and director of the academy.

Classes are arranged by approximate age and meet from 9 a.m. to noon in the Art Building on Wilson Drive. The students' work will be exhibited at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 19, in the Art Building. Afterwards, students may take their work home.

The $150 registration fee, which includes all art supplies, refreshments and exhibition expenses, is due by Friday, May 15. Children of SFA faculty and staff may register for $140. Late registration is $160.

"Parents will want to register early since we limit the enrollment to ensure personal attention and instruction," Parker said.

Registration forms are available at www.art.sfasu.edu/ or by calling the School of Art at (936) 468-4804.
