What is the Teen Arts Program?
A one-day Teen Arts Festival is held annually in early May. Any teen from throughout Atlantic County is invited to display their talent, meet with professionals in the field and attend hands-on workshops or master classes.
The Atlantic County Teen Arts is part of a statewide multidisciplinary program in the fine and performing arts. It has been available to young people in Atlantic County in varying formats since 1969. Open to any student in public or private school, as well as home-schooled students and those who are involved in extra-curricular private instruction, the program encompasses activities in dance, theater, vocal music, instrumental music, film, photography, creative writing and the visual arts.
The Atlantic County Festival is coordinated by the Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs in collaboration with Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, the Noyes Museum/Stockton, Hammonton Art Center, The Eagle Theatre, Hammonton Arts District and other arts and educational organizations.
LOCATION: Art District of Hammonton
The 2017 Teen Arts Festival will take place in various venues in the Art District of Hammonton, NJ. This includes the area of Bellevue Avenue, Second & Third Streets, Vine Street and now Front Street. This is a high traffic area; participants are asked to pay attention to the designated crossways. Hammonton police will be on hand to assist with pedestrian issues.
