Private voice LESSONS and choir COACHINGS/WORKSHOPS, by appointment.
WRITERS' GROUPS throughout the year, with a focus on NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers' Month) each November.
Creativity Retreats for writers, composers/songwriters and visual artists who want to "get away from it all" and produce! Special retreats for November NaNoWriMo participants.
AUDITIONS are underway for a new professional a cappella vocal group. We're seeking an alto, a bass, and an additiona; soprano, for a 6-person close harmony ensemble that will perform an excitingly broad repertoire: from madrigals and classical music to jazz, pop/rock and original material. Audition by appointment. You must read music well and have excellent pitch. We'll perform throughout the region, and already have an invitation for our first concert when we're ready, based on existing personnel!

SCAI is compiling a comprehensive LIST of all artists in Washington County: musicians, actors, dancers, visual artists, writers, and multi-media artists. If you'd like to be included, send us your contact information and we'll be in touch. Listing will be free as a public service to fellow artists. If you don't already have a web presence, and would like to create something simple and affordable, we also can help with that through our site, or recommend a great colleague!
On the Drawing Board
STARRY NIGHTS on Fish Point! Amateur astronomers take note. Thanks to the donation of an excellent Celestron telescope, we can invite others to join us inside the "bowl of stars" that surrounds us on clear summer nights. We're lucky to have almost no light pollution. BYOT or use ours! Best in late summer/fall. Ask about dates, or RSVP.
PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP INTENSIVES with award-winning photographer/photojournalist Johanna S. Billings. Either come "from Away" and stay in residence at SCAI's Center, or participate as a day student if you're local. These workshops will have their maiden voyage in fall 2017, dates TBA, with plans to expand the program in future years. Check our Calendar of Events for updates, or join our Mailing List.
A READER'S THEATER GROUP, reading classic and contemporary plays, and eventually also serving as a development vehicle for new plays in progress. Planned to start in winter 2017-18, as an antidote to cabin fever.
TEACHING RESIDENCIES by visiting artists in music, theater, writing, visual arts, to share their knowledge and experience: these will be an ongoing feature. Watch for details or join our mailing list!
