Welcome to the Arts and Science Center. The Center is a place for practicing, teaching, performing, enjoying and understanding the Arts and Science. The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, founded in 1968 and commissioned by the City of Pine Bluff in 1971, is operated for the benefit of all citizens of Southeast Arkansas. The mission of the Arts & Science Center is to provide opportunities for the practice, teaching, performance, enjoyment and understanding of the arts and science. Underlying those efforts is the belief that the arts and sciences preserve and transmit our heritage, enrich our lives, and contribute significantly to the social, cultural, educational, and economic well being of Southeast Arkansas. Theatre Camp is a two week day camp for kids ages 8-18, who love to act or want to learn more about the performing arts. Students will learn a lot more than just acting. For instance, students will learn about all of the components that go into creating a show.
