This could be the summer that changes your life

OSAI 2018

June 9-24, 2018

held at the beautiful Quartz Mountain Arts & Conference Center in Southwestern Oklahoma

Participants are selected through a competitive audition process. Auditions are held throughout the state in January and February. ALL ACCEPTED STUDENTS AUTOMATICALLY RECEIVE A FULL SCHOLARSHIP TO THE PROGRAM.

Our different disciplines

Part of the magic of the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain is the synergy created by artists working together from eight different areas of the literary, visual, and performing arts. No other program in the nation offers a similar experience. Artists gain inspiration from each other, and cross-disciplinary collaborations often develop.

You can audition for up to four disciplines. If you are talented in more than one area, we strongly encourage you to apply for more than one discipline—it will increase your chances of being accepted to OSAI.
