This year, Long Island High School for the Arts Class of 2002 alumna Traci Krasilovsky celebrates a benchmark achievement in her career as a senior swimsuit designer for a major design corporation.
From June 30 through July 25, this year's Summer Arts Academy will offer young Long Islanders the chance to learn from professional artists and further develop skills.
Daily classes and workshops are held in a custom-designed, air-conditioned arts complex with dance studios, digital media and music/audio production labs, skylit art studios, practice rooms and a fully-equipped professional theatre. Choose the major you want, take master classes in clowning, stage combat, self-defense and trips to Broadway Shows.
In addition to individual and group instruction from recognized artists-many of who teach at the Long Island High School for the Arts-the program gives you the opportunity to...see guests artists perform...work with ensembles...participate in workshops and events...and join the whole group for a trip to a museum or a Broadway show.
There will be chances to perform in departmental workshops-and in a major performance at the end of the "season."
