The Details: The Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute is an intensive academy for serious, disciplined, and motivated students in the artistic fields of acting, creative writing, ballet, modern dance, orchestra, chorus, drawing and painting, photography, and film and video. In addition to studying a chosen field, students are exposed to a rich variety of art forms and learning experiences. Students and faculty attend or participate in performances, gallery openings, poetry readings, and ballroom dancing classes. Faculty chamber music groups perform in the OSAI’s chamber music series Eine Kleine Quartzmusik. The talent and creativity of students and faculty combine with the mystique of Quartz Mountain to create a powerful synergy that every artist should experience!

The Environment: Quartz Mountain State Park in Lone Wolf, Oklahoma, overlooks the pristine waters of Lake Altus-Lugert and is an ancient, sacred, and inspiring site. Formerly ceremonial grounds for Kiowa, Comanche, Wichita, Apache, and Caddo tribes, Quartz Mountain is now home to an Arts and Conference Center. The Center is an ideal retreat for arts immersion. With the 700-seat Twin Peaks Performance Hall, a state-of-the-art darkroom, five studio pavilions, an outdoor amphitheater, the Beverly Badger Memorial Library, and the Quartz Mountain Art Collection, the Arts and Conference center is the region’s artistic epicenter. Nature lovers enjoy hiking and biking trails, bird watching, and a unique Oklahoma ecosystem. The Arts and Conference Center at Quartz Mountain is truly an Oklahoma treasure.
