Ignite Your Child’s Imagination At Young At Art Expo

On Saturday, March 12, 2016, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council will present Young at Art, a trade show highlighting arts engagement and creative play for families with children (ages four to eighteen years old). Local arts providers will assist parents with selecting the right summer class for their aspiring creatives. Parents will witness first-hand how the arts ignite their children’s imagination, while their kids get the chance to explore their inner dancer, actor, musician, author or visual artist. This inaugural event will be held at Penn State Lehigh Valley, from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm, and admission is free and open to the public.

“Young at Art is a day devoted to curiosity and entertainment,” says Executive Director Randall Forte, “especially after such a lingering winter.” The expo showcases twenty arts and cultural businesses in the region that offer a wide range of children’s programming, both for beginners and for kids at an intermediate level. Among them include Civic Theatre of Allentown, Baum School of Art, Allegro Dance Studio, Montero Violins, and Totts Gap Arts Institute.

The day’s festivities will feature an arts demonstration or performance every fifteen minutes, so kids will have a chance to imagine what kind of artist they want to be this summer. Families will have the opportunity to meet different arts instructors and join in hands-on activities. Young talent from the Junior Strings Orchestra, the Kazka Ukrainian Folk Ensemble and the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Performing Arts will provide additional entertainment and inspiration.

Lunch will be available for purchase, and parking is free. For more information, visit http://www.LVArtsCouncil.org.
