The Janice Wyatt Mississippi Summer Arts Institute
Registration has begun for the 2021 Janice Wyatt Mississippi Summer Arts Institute ! Please visit our MSAI page to find out more general information about our CORE Arts and PLUS summer camp.
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. Out of an abundance of caution, this year CORE Arts SUMMER 2021 will be one-week, and students will have the option of coming as a day camper, from July 11- July 17, each day from 8:30-5pm, with classes from 9am – 4:30pm or doing a late dismissal, at 8pm after evening activities, or they will be able to stay on Delta State’s campus in the dorms.
All programs will feature final showcases that demonstrate the hard work and immense dedication of our young artists. 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. Please note that, due to the logistics of hiring teaching artists, ordering supplies, and making on-campus reservations, refunds are not given unless the department is contacted approximately three weeks prior to the start of camp.
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.
