Whether you’re a curious student or an eager educator, OAI Quartz Preview Days are designed to bring the Quartz Mountain magic to your community! Each Preview Day will feature a lecture and/or masterclass led by an Oklahoma artist on a topic relevant to their artistic discipline (e.g. still life drawing, how to choose an acting monologue). There will be a discussion and Q&A regarding the discipline-specific OSAI audition requirements (what’s OSAI?). Visual arts (drawing & painting and photography) students may bring portfolio materials to the Preview Day to be reviewed by the clinician, and performing arts disciplines will practice components of the OSAI audition. Creative writing students are encouraged to submit samples of work in advance for critique.
OAI Quartz Preview Days are free and open to middle and high school students or teachers. Note: only high school students, including graduating seniors, are eligible to apply for OSAI.
