Founded in 1976 by Dr. Erik Nielsen, Kid's Kollege Art Camp is a favorite summer arts choice for children aged 6-12. The program runs two hours per day for one week, and is taught by Texas State education students. The students prepare age-appropriate, high quality art lessons that include emphasis on creative exploration through diverse media, and exposure to artists and art styles from many cultures and time periods.

For additional information contact Sherry Snowden, Director of Kids Kollege Art Camp, at ss36@txstate.edu.

In Tech Camp we will make art, stories, and games with computational technologies and traditional art materials. Dr. Sean Justice is an art educator who works at the boundary between computer science and the creative arts, where computers are art materials and computer programming is an art process. In this inaugural camp, we'll work with Scratch, a programming language that integrates art and storytelling, and with physical computing hardware like micro-controllers and environmental sensors. No prior experience with computer programming is necessary!
