Calling All Artists for the 2022 Odyssey Festival!
The Fine Arts Department is now welcoming workshop submissions and recommendations for the 2022 Odyssey Festival.
Odyssey is a biennial fine arts festival where students are inspired, entertained, and encouraged to explore how the arts connect with their lives, academics, and career paths. The next Odyssey Festival is scheduled to take place February 8-9, 2022.
Odyssey workshops are 50-minute sessions which must include a creative project, artistic skill building exercise, or interactive elements that engage students viscerally in the artistic topic. Teachers/groups generally teach at least two sessions of their workshop, per day. At this time, the following groups are especially encouraged to submit workshops:
- SHS Staff/Faculty
- SHS Alumni
- SHS Clubs (sponsored by a faculty/staff member)
- SHS Students (in collaboration with a faculty/staff member)
Please fill out the Odyssey Artist Form to express your interest in teaching OR recommend an artist for the festival. The Spring submission window ends April 16.
