A Neighborhood Arts Project free camp that brings art to those of all ages in communities that might be under-resourced in regard to art, held its weekly event Friday, June 22, 2018 at BREC's Brooks Park. The cooperative venture between the LSU Museum of Art at the Shaw Center for the Arts, the office of Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and the Arts Council of  Greater Baton Rouge, with additional sponsorship from Louisiana CAT,  runs from June until the end of July, once a week at Brooks and other locations including the Gardere Initiative (8434 Ned. Ave), Scotlandville (Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church) and Eden Park (Village Resource Center), according to Benoit. A perk is the Red River Bank Ice Cream Truck, which shows up at camp, delivering a free ice cream to young artists and the counselors from the Mayor-President's Summer Youth Employment program who help out. Painting, beading, crafts, and building with LEGO blocks are some of the offerings. Last summer 3,831 children participated, creating more than 7,282 artworks at the NAP, which is now in its sixth year, according to Brandi Simmons, communications coordinator for LSU MOA/Shaw Center for the Arts.
