Mississippi Summer Arts Institute

MSAI 2015 LogoThe Janice Wyatt Summer Arts Institute (MSAI) was established in 1998 with the dream of becoming a regional model for excellence in arts education. For 17 summers, MSAI has impacted a countless number of young creators by providing intensive instruction in a variety of art forms. The goal of MSAI is to encourage young artists to begin or continue their pursuits in the fine and performing arts. Through MSAI, participants are given the opportunity to further develop an established craft, as well as explore new, creative art forms.

MSAI provides high-quality instruction and enrichment for a wide range of participants, beginning with age 5 and continuing all the way to graduating high school seniors. Campers ages 5-12 attend PLUS Camp, a week-long, performance-oriented day camp packed with tons of energy and fun activities. Campers ages 12-18 immerse themselves in a two-week, multi-faceted, residential Core Arts program.

If you are interested in cultivating your artistic abilities or wish to explore new art forms in a positive and encouraging environment, MSAI invites you to spend your summer with us! It is sure to be a rewarding experience you will never forget!

 “MSAI has helped my growth as an actor so much. I came home with skills that not many people have the chance of getting. I made new friendships that will last forever and I’ve grown as a person and as a performer.” – MSAI Camper
