Tasmanian Creative Arts Summer School
Offered in Launceston from 10-21 January.
Each summer the University of Tasmania and partners present a vibrant and diverse program of creative arts learning workshops in our Tasmanian Creative Arts Summer School. For the 2011 event we are also very pleased to be able to offer a number of UTAS scholarships to students entering year 11 or 12 in 2011.
The program of specialist workshops is designed to offer students the opportunity to expand existing skills, grow confidence in new endeavours and be inspired by our highly respected professional tutors. During the Summer School students will make new friends, learn different creative techniques and enjoy all that Launceston and Tasmania has to offer during summer.
Workshops include Dance, Street Art and Graffiti, Musical Theatre, Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Photography, Ceramics, Voice Overs and Multimedia, Textiles, Effective Speaking Skills, Improvisation, Digital Media, Glass, Culinary Design, Printmaking, Computers in Furniture Design and many more.
All units offered by the University of Tasmania attract a 12.5% weighting and students will be enrolled in the Associate Degree in Arts. The unit may count to further study towards a number of degrees at University.
The Summer School is a cultural community-based partnership between the University of Tasmania, Tasmanian Polytechnic, Stompin Dance and the Launceston City Council.
The Newstead Campus of the Polytechnic also run their very successful Rock Music Summer School in the Summer School program. The Rock Music Summer School has been in operation for eighteen years and is run as a holiday non-residential extension program for musicians and music students of all ages interested in contemporary music.
