NSU will host three Art Camp sessions

NSU-Summer Art Camp 2017

Northwestern State University’s Department of Fine and Graphic Arts will host three weeks of Art Fundamentals Summer Camps featuring a different theme for each week.  The half-day camps fun from 1-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

“Advanced Projects for Teens” will be May 29-June 2 for youth ages 12-18.  This week is designed for older kids looking to learn advanced art skills. The five projects
students will work on throughout the week are drawing, painting, printmaking, aluminum casting and life casting. These projects will be week-long projects taught by an NSU art professor and graduate student, similar to projects taught in classes at NSU.

“Under the Big Top” will be June 5-9 for kids ages 5-11.  This week’s theme will focus on art projects with subject matter of a carnival or circus. Students will  explore the animals that entertain the masses in a Big Top show. Daring circus acts, colorful
settings, and fun costumes will be subject matters we explore through beginning art projects.

“Seeing Dragons and Fairies” will be June 12-16 for students ages 5-11.  The mythology of fairy tales and stories have historically enriched children’s lives. This week students will explore the visuals of fairies, dragons and other fantastical creatures through the creation of art projects.

Campers can be dropped off as early as 12:30 p.m. and picked up as late as 5:30 p.m.  Tuition is $145 for each weeklong session and includes a snack and all materials.  A sibling discount of $10 per sibling is available.  A $10 discount is available for attending two or more sessions. Because the classes include painting and crafts, play clothes are recommended for campers.
