The Art Department in the School of Visual Arts will host its first summer art camp this summer at the Norick Art Center on the Oklahoma City University Campus.

The camp offers each student the chance to earn 3 hours of college credit by taking a college-level art class directed and instructed by our art faculty. Each student will be provided access to the studios and digital labs and supplies will be provided.


The Norick Art Center### is located in a 29,000 square-foot facility that houses all the fine art areas. The center contains painting and drawing areas, a ceramics

and 3-D area, printmaking room, a twenty-two station Macintosh computer lab, and the Nona Jean Hulsey Gallery, which hosts eight to twelve exhibits each year. Every semester there is a capstone exhibit for seniors and a student show is held each spring. There is an active art club that sponsors two student arts shows each year plus major involvement in both university and community programs.
