Summer Arts Camps

Each summer NCLAC holds a series of camps for children entering the 2nd through 7th grades in the fall. The camps include music, visual art and drama, which expand students’ capacity to constructively express themselves and boost self-confidence through the creation of art projects and performances.

Tuition includes instruction, supplies, a snack and a camp T-shirt. Camps run Monday-Friday, 9 am-12 pm, with a presentation for parents and friends on Friday. A limited number of campers are offered “scholarships” through our Pick Your Picasso program (see more info below).

Thank you to Entergy for their support of NCLAC’s Summer Arts Camps for children!

2018 Summer Art Camp Dates will be announced in March 2018

Register your child for art camp through this link or by calling (318)255-1450.
