The Janice Wyatt Mississippi
Summer Arts Institute
Registration for the Janice Wyatt Mississippi Summer Arts Institute is now open! Please visit our MSAI page to find out more general information about our CORE Arts and PLUS Arts summer camps.
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. 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 residing in the dorms on Delta State University’s campus in Cleveland, MS.

Tuition for CORE Arts Camp can be paid in installments over the spring semester leading up to the program, and tuition for PLUS is due in one payment to secure the spot due to the popularity of the program.

Exposure to the arts contributes to the overall cognitive and social development of children. Providing students with a creative outlet of expression can improve academic achievement, accommodate a wide variety of learning styles, promote diverse multicultural perspectives, and aid in the development of positive self-esteem in adolescents. Arts education is an essential component in preparing youth for their future careers. Aspects such as team-work, self-discipline, and communication skills are promoted throughout the fine arts curriculum, and provide students with useful tools that will help them achieve their goals and aspirations.
