Youth Arts Festival

About

The Michigan Youth Arts Festival is the culmination of a nine-month search for the finest artistic talent in Michigan high schools. More than 250,000 students across the state participate in the selection process that results in 1,000 being invited to participate in the annual three-day arts spectacular.

At the Michigan Youth Arts Festival, exceptional student artists participate in advanced master classes, workshops, live performances, and exhibits that are tailored to their individual artistic discipline. Not only is it an experience to enrich their own artistic craft, but also an opportunity to celebrate their fellow peers. From the concert recitals, to the visual art exhibit, to the film festival and theatrical performances, The Michigan Youth Arts Festival is a memorable event that students will fondly remember throughout their artistic careers.

High School Student art work is only eligible for the MYAF after being entered into Regional Art Shows and must be selected from the MAEA state level adjudication.

While we often hear news about Korea’s security issues and smartphones, little is said about Korea’s rich artistic traditions that go back millennia.
Through a series of lectures focused on dance, music, and fine arts, as well as a hands-on demonstration on Korean folk painting and a visit to the Korean galleries at the University of Michigan Museum of Art, this workshop will shed light on contemporary Korean arts, showing how Korea has reinterpreted its own tradition, merged it with the contemporary global practice and successfully exported it all over the world.
 
What to expect: engaging lectures on Korea, provided by specialists in the field; teacher resource kits; a tour of the Korean galleries at the University of Michigan Museum of Art; lunch and coffee breaks; travel reimbursements for eligible participants.
 
Reserve your spot today—registration is limited.
Registration deadline: September 20.
It is possible to participate in-person or remotely (online).
 
SCECH credits (5) available both for in-person and online participants ($10 processing fee).
