WINSTON-SALEM – High school and college students considering careers in the arts are invited to register for Spring Open House at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) on March 23.

As the state’s premier arts conservatory, UNCSA offers professional training in dance, design & production (including visual arts), drama, filmmaking and music. High school, undergraduate and graduate programs vary by arts school.

Open House allows prospective students and their parents to experience campus for a day, and to learn more about their particular arts school of interest.

The day begins with check-in from 10:30 to 11 a.m. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., participants can attend an information fair with exhibits, tour the campus, and attend information sessions. The sessions will run concurrently every half hour, with topics including parent questions and answers and the application process. From 2 to 4 p.m., visitors can attend a program by one of the individual arts schools.

Online registration is required. Prospective students can fill out a registration form at http://uncsaspringopenhouse2012.eventbrite.com/. For questions about the registration form, contact the UNCSA Office of Admissions at openhouse@uncsa.edu, or 336-770-3290.

As America’s first state-supported arts school, the University of North Carolina School of the Arts is a unique stand-alone public university of arts conservatories. With a high school component, UNCSA is a degree-granting institution that trains young people of talent in music, dance, drama, filmmaking, and design and production. Established by the N.C.
