The University of Tasmania’s 2011 Creative Arts Summer School has been officially opened at the Academy of Arts at Inveresk with a percussion performance by the renowned Taiko drummers.

Summer school director Peter Hammond urged the more than 350 students involved to “indulge” in the all aspects of the experience, which runs until January 21.

Now in its fifth year, Mr Hammond said the 2011 program had been carefully designed to offer a variety of creative experiences through 16 diverse courses.

Courses offered this year include effective speaking, culinary design, scriptwriting, sculpture, multimedia, and contemporary dance.

“Each year this summer event grows in its breadth of offerings and the quality of the tutors we are able to attract,’’ Mr Hammond said.

“For participants this means the educative experiences are profoundly personal and revelatory.”
