q: how do i apply for financial aid/scholarships for my child(ren)?

A: Check out our FINANCIAL AID PAGE – and email alli@upturnarts.org if you have any further questions!

q: how does your refund policy work?

A: All registrations will be subject to a processing fee. Registrations cancelled more than one week prior to camp starting, with or without prior payment, will be subject to a cancellation fee of $50 plus processing fees. Accounts will be refunded in full less the processing and cancellation fee up to one week before camp begins. Registrations cancelled less than one week before camp will be refunded 50% of the payment, less the processing and cancellation fee.

If no payments have been made, registrants are still responsible for paying the cancellation and processing fees and will not be eligible for scholarships in the future unless this balance is settled.

Q: What is the positive vibrations guest artist series?

A: This series offers a daily, hour-long opportunity for campers to meet and learn from some of New Orleans’ most acclaimed visual, performing and culinary artists. Visiting artists explain why they are so passionate about what they do and what it really means to be a professional working artist. They also perform and introduce their young audience to a truly high-level arts experience and maybe even ask them to join them in song, dance, cooking or creating art. This series encourages and inspires campers to follow their own dreams into a rewarding and exciting career in the arts. In 2015, artists included: Mike Dillon, Daria Druzik, Chief Bo Dollis Jr., “Mean” Willie Green, Dave Shaw, Luke Quaranta, Darcy Malone & The Tangle, and Dr. Michael White.
