Since 2006, Emeril Lagasse Foundation (ELF) has sponsored the Emeril Lagasse Foundation Summer Arts Camp at the Contemporary Arts Center.

“Kids experiment, taste and learn the art of cooking.”

Hands-on art, and let’s not forget tasting

ELF has been the title sponsor of Summer Arts Camp at the Contemporary Arts Center since 2007. This comprehensive arts education program serves children from ages 6 to 17 over a four-week period in July. The camp focuses on the diverse strengths of the arts in New Orleans, and integrates culinary classes along creative and thematic topics. Instructors at the camp are notable local artists and educators, and half of all campers attend on scholarship.

In January 2010, Emeril Lagasse Foundation was an honoree at the Contemporary Arts Center SweetArts Ball.
