The Young Artists’ Academy is a free program and organization for students dedicated to the study and practice of the visual arts. The program runs for the course of an entire year, beginning and ending each May. The selected group of artists develop their ideas and philosophies of the visual arts through a variety of creative projects and community events. Students in this program enrich their portfolios and resumes, meet local artists, explore careers in the visual arts and learn responsibility and reliability. Students participate in critiques that encourage them to learn about the many different view points in art.

Applications for the 2014 – 2015 Young Artists’ Academy will be available by March 7, 2014 at 5 p.m. on this webpage. To be considered, students must submit completed applications by email or in person no later than Friday, April 25, 2014 at 7 p.m.


What people are saying about the Young Artists’ Academy:

"I loved all of the opportunities that I was given to meet artists, sell my work and volunteer over the 3 years I was in the Young Artists’ Academy. Without it, I wouldn't have the experience that I can apply towards a job. I also wouldn't have the professionalism and connections that separates me from and makes me ahead of my peers right now. Being part of the YAA definitely helped be decide to pursue a Visual Arts Major and provided me the confidence and direction needed to excel. I love the YAA and am still involved and support the Kimball Art Center."
