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.

Who It’s For

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.

Festival dates are May 18, 19 and 20, 2017 at Western Michigan University.  The show will be held at the Richmond Gallery.  The Top 100 Exhibit can be viewed from May 8-20, 2017 .  

Forms / Guidelines

These are the forms used when entering Regional Shows with student art. All teachers will fill out the K-12 Form for Regional Shows – One for each piece entered. It is highly suggested that you download and read the K-12 State Show Checklist so that you will be able to prepare and present your student pieces properly.
