By | | No Comments

Whether you are interested in dance, literary arts, music, theatre, visual arts, or all of the above, Arts Camp will provide you with an intensive, two-week residential learning experience on the beautiful Delta State University campus. Arts Camp exists to promote the artistic and creative abilities of young artists, including those with previous artistic training, as well as those receiving their first exposure to the arts. Campers are offered the opportunity to customize their schedule by choosing their own course of study in a five-period-per-day format. MSAI courses offer a tremendous opportunity for individual instruction, with a teacher-student ratio of approximately 1:8. Arts Camp provides a positive and supportive environment for artists who wish to gain exposure to the arts or aim to further develop their creative abilities. When evening rolls around, there is even more fun to be had, like cookouts, games on the quad, and visits to the Delta State pool! Campers will stay on campus at Delta State University. Arts Camp culminates with final presentations and performances that are open to the community at the Delta and Pine Land Theater main-stage in the Bologna Performing Arts Center. “Arts Camp broadened my horizon, and showed me so many new ideas. MSAI was a mixture of fun, hard work, and laughter. When the two weeks were over, I knew that my life as an artist would never seem to be the same.” 2013 MSAI Arts Camper Important Information Cost: $725, An all-inclusive fee that provides the following: -all art supplies -lodging accommodations -all meals -weekend field trips -MSAI t-shirt A non-refundable application fee of $75, included in the total price, is due with your application.
