Fifty students attend NOC Arts Adventure Camp
Over fifty students sang, painted, drew, danced, sculpted and made videos, photographs, jewelry and masks during the 31st annual Arts Adventure summer camp at Northern Oklahoma College from July 18-21.
Nine expert artists from NOC and around the state offered thirteen unique classes in visual and performing arts for area youth in grades six to twelve, and some students attended from as far away as Colorado.
Some new classes offered this year were Linocut Printmaking and Digital Escape Room. Sponsored by Arts Adventure Foundation with support from the Oklahoma Arts Council, NOC, National Endowment for the Arts, local businesses and private donors, the popular four-day camp culminated in an Open House for family and friends to visit the studios on campus and see the creative outcome of the week’s work in visual art.
Additionally, the performance classes showed their accomplishments in the theater of the Kinzer Performing Art Center.
The summer camp began in 1991 and was held on the grounds of the Marland Mansion. In 2000, it moved to the campus of Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa. Arts Adventure is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Visit Arts Adventure Facebook page for photos and videos. Plans have already begun for the 2023 Arts Adventure Camp tentatively scheduled for July 17-20.
