Summer Camp New Orleans - Art Centered Camps

NOMA summer camps are grounded in experiences with art in NOMA’s collection, special exhibitions, and the Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Campers explore the galleries and garden to engage in close looking and use conversations about artworks as a launching-off point to develop critical thinking skills, connect with others, and deepen personal identity and creativity. We emphasize an interdisciplinary approach to creative thinking and art-making.

Summer 2022 College Prep Group Coaching

Summer 2022 College Prep Group Coaching

As the Class of 2022 graduates and moves on to higher education, students hope for bright futures and dream careers. Students diagnosed with ADHD are more likely to have lower GPAs, pursue fewer course credits, and drop out by the time their first year of college is over; and without intervention, this trend can continue into their second year. Neurodivergent Coaching’s Summer College Prep Program aims to remedy this by pairing students with a certified coach to build executive functioning skills, learn about their ADHD, and ease into what college life is like in order to foster a successful college career.
