Janice Wyatt Mississippi Summer Arts Institute CORE Arts Camp
June 20 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:00 am, repeating until June 23, 2023
|CORE Arts is a 2 week-long, intensive summer arts program, where emerging artists can realize their dreams, unleash their imagination, and discover and explore their talents, while choosing to stay on DSU’s campus or attend as a day-camper. Campers range in ages from 11-18 (rising 7th graders – graduating high school seniors).
Each day, campers will receive wide-ranging and intensive instruction from experienced teaching artists in a variety of art forms including dance, literary arts, music, theatre, and visual arts. Campers customize their schedule by choosing their own course of study in a five-period-per-day format. Courses offer a tremendous opportunity for individual instruction, with a teacher-student ratio of approximately 1:12. Core Arts exists to promote the creative abilities of young artists, teach valuable and marketable skills to a future workforce and introduce Delta State facilities to middle and high school students.
Campers fill out surveys so that we know what types of courses to schedule for upcoming summers, but we also take into account that new and emerging artistic disciplines like comic book drawing and digital arts are especially popular with our young artists. Courses we have held in the past include dramatic improvisation, scene and character study, musical theatre, hip-hop dance, introduction to Photoshop, mixed-media portraiture, painting with found materials, web-series development, and many more! Students will also partake in evening and weekend activities, which have previously included trips to Memphis to see Broadway performances in Memphis, professional baseball games in Jackson and Memphis, guided canoe trips along the Mississippi River, artist led tours of Peters Pottery and McCarty Pottery Studios, and a private tour of the Grammy MS Museum with Karaoke.
