|On Saturday, March 12, 2016, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council will present Young at Art, an expo of arts camps and schools, to assist parents with selecting the appropriate summer class for their child. This inaugural event will be held at Penn State Lehigh Valley, from 9:00am to 2:30pm, and feature thirty exhibitors who offer lessons in the performing, literary, media and visual arts. Free admission to the expo is provided to the public.
Families with children (ages four to eighteen years old) will enjoy meeting the various exhibitors and learning about the artistic opportunities for their aspiring creatives. The day’s festivities will showcase an arts demonstration, performance or activity every 25-minutes so children will have a chance “to try on what kind of artist” they want to be this summer.
“The idea for a children’s arts expo came from a parent of two small children who was having difficulty identifying a summer program for both her kids,” says Executive Director Randall Forte. “Bringing people together to engage with the arts is what the Arts Council does.”
A limited number of spaces are available for arts and cultural organizations to exhibit and promote their programs, and registration will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. There will also be opportunities for exhibitors to select a 25-minute time slot to showcase a demonstration or activity. For more details on registration, organizations may visit http://www.LVArtsCouncil.org/Young-At-Art.
The fee for exhibiting is $250 for members and $350 for nonmembers. Arts Council members can also take advantage of a $50 discount for early registration by December 15, 2015. The final date for registration will be January 20, 2016. Any questions may be directed to the Lehigh Valley Arts Council at 610-437-5259.
This blog was started as a public service to help keep folks informed about things going on in our world. That “world” started out as Greater Pottstown but expanded to include the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (and sometimes our next door neighbors New Jersey and Delaware).
WE ARE 100% NON-PROFIT. With more and more newspapers requiring paid subscriptions or offering only restricted access it has become increasing difficult to share information. We have no budget, we have no advertisers or sponsors to offset these costs. Therefore, effective immediately, we are only going to publish press releases, event flyers or original content.
As much as this saddens us, news access is going to continue to shrink without paid subscriptions. This is a hobby, not a business.
We will continue to share news on our Facebook page because “sharing” information that way is kosher and free for now, apparently. Our page can be found by clicking this link if you aren’t familiar with it
We have to roll with the changing times and we thank you for your support since 2009. Hopefully these changes will keep us around a while longer.
