Jump into CSU Summer Arts this July
Student testimonials repeatedly verify the life changing benefits of participating in the CSU Summer Arts master classes offered each July since in 1985. Lucky for Fresno and surrounding communities, this summer will celebrate ten successful years that Fresno State's College of Arts and Humanities has hosted this CSU system-wide program. This provides local students with easy access to working in a unique environment with some of the best artists and master teachers in the world today.
The 2008 line-up of sixteen master classes offers students, professionals, and serious amateurs choices in dance, theatre, art, animation, film, video, and creative writing. No other summer arts program is as ambitious as CSU Summer Arts in its class selections. Students come from many states and abroad to study with artists and master teachers who, this year, will be arriving from Paris, London, Japan, Germany, Spain, and many parts of the United States.
All Summer Arts workshops carry three units of transferrable undergraduate or graduate university credit. Students work hard but thrive in the creatively rich atmosphere of intense study and complete immersion in their chosen field. For many undergraduate students, Summer Arts acts as an internship and springboard into their careers. Scholarships are available and students should apply if they qualify as nearly 80% of Summer Arts students will receive some scholarship assistance.
