Budding Young Artists at NSU

Northwestern State University’s Art Department held the first of three art camps June 5-9 for area youngsters. Forty-six young artists between the ages of 5 and 11 enjoyed a week of creativity and learning as they worked with NSU Art faculty and older art students.

In this week’s camp, the youngsters interpreted classic artworks in the style of Legos and Minecraft, In the next camp, they will focus on art projects related to nature in Louisiana. The third camp is for older artists, ages 11-18, and will teach more advanced art skills. The teens will choose among resources such as 3D printers, laser cutters/engravers, carving, printmaking and more. The instructors will be two NSU Art professors and the camp will be similar in style to actual classes at NSU’s Art Department.

NSU has something for young artists to keep busy, learn, make new friends, and grow. If you would like more information about NSU’s Art Camps, feel free to contact Professor Corbin Covher at covherc@nsula.edu.
