When: June 6-11, 2021

The Mississippi School of the Arts will host a summer arts camp for students entering grades 8-10 that will offer one week of intensive arts training in creative writing, dance, theatre, visual, filmmaking, and vocal music with classes by our extraordinary faculty. Students will have the opportunity to study two art forms of choice for the week, culminating with a showcase for families.

Students can get the experience of living in a residential environment or participate as a commuter for the week. Our dynamic educational environment is unlike any other. We offer students the opportunity to focus on creative expression and innovation.
