We are excited to announce that the Darlington County School District has partnered with the P.L. & Belle Wolf McCall School of Visual & Performing Arts Department and the ArtSummer program will be held on Coker University's campus this summer! Through ArtSummer Intensive, students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the study of a specific arts discipline for three weeks. The arts disciplines are visual arts, media arts, dance, theater, instrumental & vocal music.

ArtSummer Intensive is a three-week course designed to provide recognition, encouragement, and enrichment for young, talented student artists. During the three weeks, students will have many opportunities to show dedication, accountability, take risks, and express themselves in their various arts disciplines.

The program will operate June 6 - 24, 8:15am - 12:30, Monday through Friday. Shuttle transportation will be provided from a central location for students living in Darlington, Lamar, and Society Hill. Students living in Hartsville will need to provide their own transportation.
