The Department of Art held its first session of a visual arts summer program, In-Vision, from June 7 through 14. The overnight camp, intended for high school students age 16 and up, is meant to expose students to majors and careers in the studio fields of art and design.

Six students spent the week at Mississippi State learning from art professors Jonathan Cumberland, Suzanne Powney, Robert Long and John Paul Remo. Along with working in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, graphic design, printmaking and clay, students got to meet with professionals from the visual arts field to learn more about career opportunities. The program is unique because it introduces students to materials and tools they would not normally use in other camps or at school. Lori Neuenfeldt served a camp coordinator, and Lorrin Webb was the student assistant who conducted the camp’s evening activities.

Workshops included:
Observational Drawing Workshop 1: Perspective
Three Dimensional Design
Observational Drawing Workshop 2: Geometric Deconstruction
Three Dimensional Design
Design Fundamentals
Observational Drawing Workshop 3: Anatomy/Figure
Drawing & Inking: Comic Strip
Printmaking
Computing Arts Photoshop
Letterpress
Poster Design Graphics

Students also went on a field trip to the Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge to study color and theory during an outdoor watercolor workshop.

An exhibition was held on the final day to showcase the students’ work.
