Students participate in an art adventure summer camp at Northern Oklahoma College


31st Annual Art Adventure Summer Camp at Northern Oklahoma College

NOC Tonkawa-

More than 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 July 18-21.

Nine expert artists from the NOC and across the state offered thirteen unique visual and performing arts classes to local youth in grades six through 12, and some students attended classes as far away as Colorado.

Some new courses 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 allowing family and friends to visit the campus studios and see the creative output of the week’s work in visual art.

Additionally, the performance classes showed their achievements in the theater of the Kinzer Performing Art Center.

The summer camp began in 1991 and was held on the grounds of Marland Mansion. In 2000, it moved to the Northern Oklahoma College campus in Tonkawa.

Arts Adventure is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Visit the Arts Adventure Facebook page for photos and videos.

Plans have already begun for the 2023 Art Adventure Camp, tentatively scheduled for July 17-20.
