DEKALB—Summer is a great time to focus on the arts or to learn something new. The Northern Illinois University Community School of the Arts has some wonderful programming planned for children and adults this summer. Classes, ensembles and day camps begin the week of June 17 and run throughout June and July. All classes and lessons are taught on NIU’s campus.

Private Lessons

Private lessons offered on most musical instruments, as well as in specific areas of theatre (such as auditioning skills) and visual art (such as drawing). Teachers are NIU students and faculty, as well as community artists. Students and teachers meet every week for six weeks and are taught at times and days that are convenient to both students and teachers.

Music Day Camps

Duet Camp (ages 8 – 15) is for string players, flutists and clarinetists who enjoy playing their instrument with others. Campers refine note-reading skills, learn more about playing music with others and develop listening and leadership skills. Campers are expected to have at least one year of playing experience. The camp meets from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. on July 8 – 11. The camp is limited to 12 players.
