    Living Arts of Tulsa offers the New Arts Camp for students going into 6th through 12th grades. New Arts Camp uses four different artistic disciplines - video, performance, new music and sculpture - to provide an equal balance between imagination and technique development over a two-week period. The New Arts Camp focuses on research and creation of interdisciplinary artworks. Campers will be exposed to New Arts Talks daily, which will focus on past an present contemporary artists. Camp participants will present their own multi-disciplinary project at the end of the session. Living Arts engages Tulsa's best artists to teach at New Arts Camp. Plus, several guest artists make appearances throughout the session.

    Students will work with a variety of materials to create 3-dimensional sculptural artworks. This may include installation artworks, kinetic sculpture, funkiture, or other sculpture that connects with video, performance or new music.
    Students will experiment with the creation of new compositions utilizing a variety of instruments, which the students create and play. Hand drumming techniques and different ways of composing are only a couple of the experiments that will take place!
    Students will learn the basics of video camcorder anatomy, story boarding, idea development, lighting, sound and editing. The emphasis of this portion of the New Arts Camp will be to use video in ways which connect with other art forms.
    Students will be given the opportunity to learn how their bodies, words and movements can be used as elements of artwork. Emphasis will be on taking personal expressions to a poetic level.
    Each day students will learn about today’s artists who are creating interdisciplinary artworks. Artists such as John Cage, Laurie Anderson, Bill Viola and Nam Jun Paik are presented in video presentations, demonstrations and slide discussions to help students learn about the artists making a difference in the art world today.
