NSU will offer three sessions of Art Camp


NATCHITOCHES –  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.  Campers can be dropped off as early as 12:30 p.m. and picked up as late as 5:30 p.m.  Each camp will begin in Room 205 in the Department of Fine and Graphic Art.


“Advanced Projects for Teens” for students age 12-18 will be June 4-8.  This week is designed for older kids looking to learn advanced art skills. The 5 projects we will work on throughout the week are digital illustration, 3D printing, portraiture, sculpting and life casting. These projects will be weeklong projects taught by an NSU art professor and an NSU grad student, similar to the projects taught in classes at NSU.


“Super Heroes” will be for students age 5-11 and will take place June 11-15.  This week’s theme focuses on art projects with subject matter of heroes and villains. The camp will   explore the scenes and characteristics that entertain the masses in comic books and graphic novels. Good versus evil, special powers and fun costumes will be explored through beginning level art projects.


“Outer Space” for students age 5-11 will be June 18-22. This week’s theme focuses on art projects with subject matter revolving around space. Aliens, spaceships, other planets and endless possibilities will be explored through entry level art projects.


Tuition is $150 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. A $20 discount is available for children or grandchildren of an NSU employee with a copy of an NSU faculty ID.  Checks should be made to the NSU Foundation.


Because the classes include painting and crafts, play clothes are recommended for campers.
