CSU Summer Arts has extended its application deadline to encourage students to sign up for two week classes in July in public art, live TV production, multimedia writers and solo performance.

CSU Summer Arts, offered by the California State University system, is composed of two sessions of master’s classes and public performances at California State University, Fresno. The program has been housed at Fresno State the past eight Julys.

Available during the July 1-14 session are:

“Going Public: Architecture, Landscape, and the Emerging Field of Public Art,” designed to create an opportunity for interdisciplinary studies among architects, designers, landscape architects, and fine artists. Students will study form, space, digital tools and ordering systems and will travel to view public artworks in Central California.

“Television Production: Live in 5-4-3-2,” in which the CSU Summer Arts Playhouse collaborates with the Amakhosi Theatre Company to present a live drama for television. Producers, directors and camera operators will learn how to work collaboratively to produce a television event.

Participants also are sought for the following July 15-28 classes:

“The Writer Who Adapts,” which will teach participants to adapt scripts for film, television and theater. The course is taught by award-winning writers.

“Solo Performance: Cultural Perspectives from Three Continents” will examine solo performance derived from personal experiences of actors or playwrights and their relationship to culture, politics and the global community. Guest artists from Southern Africa, Aboriginal Australia and the United States will share their methods of developing and performing solo performance pieces that address their cultural identity and family history.

Registration is open to interested students of varied abilities. Some scholarships also are available. Application forms and detailed information about each class is available online at www.csusummerarts.org or by calling 559.241.6090.
