WAA WORKSHOP: To be eligible, a student must meet rigorous artistic and academic criteria after winning at a district Rodeo Art show. HLSR judge members personally interview selected applicants and review their art portfolios as part of the final selection process. The Western Art Academy Summer Workshop is a four-week program held in Kerrville, Texas under the direction of the Museum of Western Art and Schreiner University. Students study sculpture and oil painting with a focus on Western heritage as their subject matter. Students work with models and are taken on field trips for study. Workshop classes are conducted Monday through Saturday. Students stay in housing at Schreiner University.
