Background

The Oklahoma Arts Institute (OAI) was established in 1977 to provide fine arts training to Oklahoma’s talented high school students at the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute (OSAI). World-class artists come to Quartz Mountain each June to teach and mentor nearly 300 gifted young Oklahoma artists. OSAI offers classes in choral and orchestral music, acting, creative writing, photography, drawing & painting, film & video, ballet, and modern dance. Through a competitive audition process in various cities throughout Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Arts Institute selects students ages 14 – 18 to attend the summer program.

 
Inspired by the success of their students attending the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute, Oklahoma educators and community artists suggested a similar program designed for adults. In 1983, OAI established the Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute (OFAI), a series of weekend workshops for adults in the visual, literary, and performing arts. In October and November, nationally known faculty artists provide intensive arts study for adults who wish to continue their educational and personal enrichment. The largest audience served by OFAI consists of Oklahoma public school educators, who take the skills they learn back to their classrooms and share new techniques with students and peers. Over 50,000 K-12 students benefit indirectly through their teachers’ participation in OFAI.
 
Tour de Quartz is an outreach program that serves local communities and the entire state by showcasing student artwork in Oklahoma's finest galleries and museums. Tour de Quartz celebrates Oklahoma’s artistic talent, raises awareness about OAI and its programs, and helps develop arts audiences in many communities. All artists, parents, supporters, and members of surrounding communities are encouraged to attend the annual state tours of OSAI student art exhibitions.
 
The Quartz Mountain Arts and Conference Center in Lone Wolf, Oklahoma, has been home to the programs of the Oklahoma Arts Institute since 1978. Chosen for its natural beauty and its ability to be secured, Quartz Mountain is an ancient and honorable site, rich in Native American culture. Offering the rare combination of exceptional facilities and magnificent natural surroundings, Quartz Mountain is the ideal setting for the study of the arts. The Arts Institute has a 50-year lease with the State of Oklahoma for use of the conference center.
Impact Vision Statement: Achievement of vibrant arts communities which enhance the cultural landscape and enrich the lives of all Oklahomans.

Description
The Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute (OSAI) is an intensive, two-week residential academy for serious, disciplined and motivated high school students ages 14 – 18.  Students are selected through a competitive, statewide audition process to study with nationally renowned artists in the fields of acting, creative writing, ballet, modern dance, orchestra, chorus, drawing & painting, photography, and film & video.  The program’s multi-disciplinary structure sets the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute apart from other arts programs in the nation.  In addition to studying a chosen field for at least six hours a day, students are exposed to a rich variety of art forms and learning experiences.  Students and faculty attend and participate in performances, faculty lectures, gallery openings, poetry readings, and recreational activities.  The talent and creativity of students and faculty, combined with the mystique of Quartz Mountain, create a powerful synergy.
 
Statewide auditions for the summer program take place each January through March.  Every year, nearly 1,000 Oklahoma students audition in various cities across the state in hopes of being one of only 270 students chosen to attend the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain.

Description The Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute (OFAI) was established in 1983 in response to requests from educators across the state for continuing education of the same high caliber as the summer program. OFAI consists of a series of intense, “hands-on” weekend workshops in the visual, literary, and performing arts for adults, most of whom are public school educators. Participants enhance their own artistic and professional skills and broaden their intellectual horizons, providing a wonderful resource for their students by enriching the classroom learning experience. They return to their communities eager to share what they have learned.  Based on participant evaluations, it is estimated that OAI indirectly serves over 50,000 K-12 students each year through their teachers’ participation in OFAI!
