During this year's spring break camp, students will be introduced to the work of some of Oklahoma's most inspiring and energetic young artists. Like many of these artists, we will explore the theme of belonging- to a place, a culture, a generation. What are the emblems of our times? How can you capture the essence of a place? A people? Our works will be both collaborative and individual, two dimensional and three. Students need to bring their lunch and a snack each day and come dressed for outdoor breaks.

Prairie Arts Center is excited to once again partner with the OSU Museum of Art for this year's Fall Break Camp. This 3-day camp will begin on Wednesday, October 18th with a visit to the museum for an interactive tour of Leon Polk Smith: Affinities in Art and Design.
