Event Description

Interested in learning more about the Downtown Arts District's Young Artists Group? It's is the evening for you! Come join us for an informative and social evening showcasing YAG. Whether you are a young artist or an experienced artists this group has something to offer!

The goal for the Young Artists Group (YAG) is to attract exceptional artistic talent, mentor, educate and help bring their remarkable work to audiences throughout the Downtown Arts District and beyond.

The age range for this group is between the ages of 15 and 22 years. Adults in the visual and performing arts interested in becoming a mentor and/or instructor are welcome to join this group. The Group will meet regularly online via the Slice, at CityArts Factory and occasionally at performance venues and galleries in Downtown Orlando.

Monthly Mentor Workshops:
The first Saturday of every month (exception of June andJuly due to summer break for students), the CityArts Young Artists Group will meet from 1-4 PM for a professional development workshop lead by one of our mentor artists. Concepts and ideas to be discussed include professionalism and intentionality as an artist, developing your artist's statement, how to create a body of work for exhibits, curating an exhibit, finding your voice/style as an artist, as well as many other topics. Mentor artists will also introduce the YAG members to their own personal style and to the mediums used in their artwork. YAG Third Thursday exhibits be reflect that which the student artist take from their exposure to the mentor's artwork, whether it be style, subject or medium. Art supplies are available during the workshop generously provided by SAM FLAX, the largest local art retailer in Orlando. An application must be completed to participate in this YAG Group activity.
