Discovering a world of creativity

Register Today

You’ll be immersed in the creative world—and get an exciting introduction to career opportunities as well.


You can tailor your experience by choosing from five different workshops:

  • Acrylic Painting
  • Basic Drawing
  • Digital Illustration
  • Basic Design Concepts
  • Weaving and Fiber Arts

Activities

  • On Monday morning after check in, all campers will choose three workshops. Each camper will be assigned two of those workshops according to studio capacity, seniority and interest.
  • Each day will be filled not only with creative and exciting workshops but also daily fun group challenges called “Art Attack.”
  • Most importantly, we will be having a daily group devotion time where we dive into answering some real questions about art, beauty and creativity from God’s perspective.
  • At the end of the week we'll showcase the art that you and your fellow campers have created, along with a brief awards presentation at 2 p.m. on the upper level of the Sargent Art Building. Your family and friends are welcome to attend.
  • On Thursday, campers will enjoy a field trip to tour the Art & Design department at BJU Press.

Supply List

Campers should bring a sketchbook, 8G flash drive, Bible, notebook and pencil for daily Bible challenges and devotional sessions.
