The Cumberland County Teen Arts Festival

"The Cumberland County Teen Arts Festival makes its return on Friday, May 12th, 2017, in the Glasstown Arts District, thanks to a partnership of local organizations. The festival offers an opportunity for young artists age 13-19 in Cumberland County to receive invaluable feedback and instruction from professionals in the creative and performing arts.   This event allows students to explore artistic possibilities, share achievements in the arts, and investigate the diverse means of expression.

The Festival will feature student visual art exhibits (2-D, 3-D & photography) and student performances in dance, theatre (large and small groups), musical theatre, vocal choral music, solo & small ensemble vocal performances, large & small instrumental performances, samples of creative writing & student-produced videos.

In addition to exhibits, performances, and critiques, all students will have the opportunity to participate in workshops that will range from drama, to voice, acting, instrumental music, creative writing and more. The festival will also feature a College & Opportunity Fair, as well as, professional development workshops for the teachers.

 

Selected students will be invited to have their work showcased at the state level Festival where they will be eligible for scholarships. The state-level Festival is the grand finale and culminating event of numerous separate county-wide Teen Arts Festivals.
