Art Summer Camp: INvision

Art Summer Camp: INvision

INvision offers an exciting, intensive, one week in-residence summer program to introduce students to majors in the studio fields of art and design.

INvision will not be held summer 2024. 

Students will be exposed to an array of cultural and social activities such as an artist lecture series, gallery exhibitions, movie night, and field trips. Full days will include fundamentals of drawing and design and computer art applications. At the end of the program students will exhibit their work at the Visual Arts Center Gallery. The exhibit will be open to the Mississippi State University community, family, and friends.

Throughout the week faculty and professionals in the visual and design fields, such as sculptors, graphic designers, illustrators, and fashion designers will engage students and discuss creative career opportunities.


The program provides an opportunity for talented high school age students (16 and above) and incoming freshman to experiment and learn about majors and careers in the professional art world.

Application and Costs

INvision is first-come, first-served, and space is limited. All applications should be received by us before May 14. Anyone considering applying after this date should call the Mississippi State University Department of Art to see if space is still available.

The total cost of the camp is $600. This includes a non-refundable filing fee of $100, which is paid at the time of application. Upon notice of acceptance to INvision, the remaining $500 is due by May 14.

The cost of the program includes instruction by faculty and counselors, a t-shirt, supplies that the student will receive throughout the week, and university fees for health services, equipment, facilities, and libraries.

If for some unseen reason you cancel your attendance, you will receive a 100% refund (of the $500) prior to May 14, and a 50% refund (of the $500) prior to June 1. No refund will be available after June 1.

Email me when registration opens for summer 2025.

Room and Board

Campers must stay in the Mississippi State residence hall rooms. The residence halls will be supervised by the counselors who will be assisting throughout the week as well as trained Mississippi State residence hall assistants (RAs). Roommate requests may be made at the time of application or at any time prior to the registration deadline. No room assignments will be changed after 5 p.m. on May 30. All students MUST bring a pillow, bed linens, toiletries, and towels.

All meals will be organized through the department and covered by camp fees. Campers may wish to purchase snacks on their own at locations on campus.
