Art Summer Camp: INvision

INvision offers an exciting, intensive, one week in-residence summer program to introduce students to majors in the studio fields of art and design.

The next available camp will be held in June 2020. Check back soon for exact dates.

Students will be exposed to an array of cultural and social activities such as an artist lecture series, gallery exhibitions, movie night, and field trips. Full days will include fundamentals of drawing and design, building materials, and computer art applications. At the end of the program students will exhibit their work at the Visual Arts Center Gallery. The exhibit will be open to the Mississippi State University community, family, and friends.

Throughout the week faculty and professionals in the visual and design fields, such as sculptors, graphic designers, illustrators, interior designers, fashion designers, and landscape architects will engage students and discuss creative career opportunities.
