Mississippi Summer Arts Institute

MSAI 2015 Logo

For the past 17 summers, the Mississippi Summer Arts Institute has impacted the lives of countless emerging artists by providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to gain broad exposure in all artistic disciplines. The goal of MSAI is to encourage young artists to begin or continue their pursuits in the fine and performing arts. Youth from across the state of Mississippi and beyond will be setting their sights on summer activities at MSAI.

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 5-11 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. Both programs will feature final showcases that demonstrate the hard work and immense dedication of our young artists.

Through MSAI you can develop your interests and abilities, and enlarge your vision of what is possible. You can explore different disciplines and open doors to new opportunities. Please join us this summer and expand your horizons through the arts. It is sure to be a rewarding experience you will never forget!

“MSAI has opened my eyes to new things and new ways to practice my craft, and has allowed me to meet so many people who love the same things as me.” -MSAI Camper
