The Young Artists’ Academy is an organization for students dedicated to the study and practice of the visual arts. This select group of artists develops ideas and philosophies of visual arts through a variety of creative projects and community events. Students in this program enrich their portfolios and resumes, meet local artists and explore careers in the visual arts. Students participate in critiques that encourage them to learn about the different view points in art. This is an organization for students who can be mature about subject matter and who want to work hard to advance their understanding of the visual arts.

Congratulations to the newly selected students for the 2014-2015 year. The new class begins Thursday, May 23, 2014.

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."

- Ali Mitchell, YAA Graduate 2012, University of Utah Fine Arts Major.
