Written by Jessica Slaughter, NCLAC Executive Director 

The North Central Louisiana Arts Council’s Summer Arts Camps are back for 2015! For more than twenty years, NCLAC has offered art camps for students enrolled in 1st through 6th grades (entering 2nd through 7th in the fall).

Students in 2D class - 2014

 These five-day camps, held Monday-Friday from 9am-noon, are taught by artists and art educators. This year’s camps will offer classes each day in drama, visual art, and new this year—PERCUSSION!

Camp schedule is as follows:
Ruston 1, June 22-26 at Presbyterian Church of Ruston
Jonesboro, July 6-10 at United Methodist Church, Jonesboro
Ruston 2, July 13-17 at Presbyterian Church of Ruston

This year we will have Matthew Knopps, art teacher in Ouachita Parish, and Hillary Clary, talented art teacher in Caddo Parish, instructing our visual art classes. Although these teachers teach outside Lincoln Parish, Knopps lives here in Ruston, and Clary is a Ruston native. They are both graduates of Louisiana Tech.
James Waller, a Lincoln Parish musician and former director of the Percussive Arts Institute of Ruston, will be teaching our music classes.
Stephanie Tippi Hart, a local theatre personality and soon-to-be PhD candidate at Arizona State University, will lead our drama classes. You may also know Hart as RPAR’s Zumba instructor.
