Young Artists Group, presented by Artegon Marketplace

Downtown Arts District’s Young Artists Group spotlights Orlando’s talented young artists. The Young Artists Group (YAG) gives an outlet for artists 15-21 to express themselves through the joy of art. Art is then displayed at the CityArts Factory every 3RD Thursday of the month to display and sell the YAG's work. 

Every month the YAG cultivates creativity, ignites minds, and provides inspiration from local mentors. Each month the next famous artist is waiting to be discovered in the Downtown Arts District's YAG.

Membership is moderated. Members are notified once you've been approved.

Young Artists Group Basic Details:

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 21 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 and July 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.

Monthly Third Thursday Exhibits:

Each month where there has been a mentor workshop held, the YAG members will display their work for that month reflecting the style, subjects and/or mediums of the mentor artist for the month. YAG members will rotate taking the responsibility for curating the YAG exhibit each 3RD Thursday. Adhering to deadlines and gallery guidelines will be a priority in YAG members' artistic development. Gallery themes, such as Halloween, will be incorporated into the YAG exhibits themes, as well. CLICK HERE to download the application document.

YAG Workshop Update! Surface Encounters, July 9, at Artegon Marketplace.
I am happy to announce that our guest artist-mentor for this workshop will be the one and only Tre Harris. Harris will talk about the history and evolution of his annual 'Boarded Up' exhibit at CityArts Factory, featuring skateboard/longboard art. He will show examples of skateboard art, discuss techniques, and assist participants in creating their own original works on broken boards. The broken skateboard pieces are perfect surfaces for creating experimental works. The YAG Gallery's Surface Encounters Exhibit will coincide with Harris's Boarded Up exhibit on August 18th at CityArts Factory. We still have spaces open for this workshop! RSVP required by Thursday, July 7th.
