Youth In Art (YIA) - 2014


It’s nearly time for Youth In Art at the Bonifas Arts Center, that explosive annual celebration of art from students in grades K through 12.  Student submissions are due by 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 22.  Art is selected by the art teachers, academic teachers, and homeshoolers during the year, but students are allowed to enter works on their own as well.  If you’re home-schooling, or not in an art class, we still are interested in your work.  Students may submit up to three works in any media.   submission forms are available at the Arts Center or online (see Artist Opportunities under the Exhibits Tab on the home page).

The Youth In Art exhibit is sponsored annually by NewPage, and features awards from the Delta-Schoolcraft Intermediate School District, Escanaba Noon Kiwanis, the Escanaba Chapter of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, NewPage, and the Arts Center.  There is no fee to enter works in the show, which runs March 13 through April 24.


Reception for grades K - 5 is Thursday, March 20 from 6 to 7 PM.

Reception for grades 6 - 12 is Thursday, March 27th from 6 to 7 PM.

**Awards will be presented at 6:30 PM at each reception.  There is no charge to visit the gallery or attend receptions, refreshments will be served.  Our hours are 10:00 to 5:30 PM Tuesday through Friday, and 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturdays.


Most of our entries come from the classroom, but if you home school, or if you are interested in submitting your child's artwork, please click on artist opportunities on the exhibit tab for submission requirements and the necessary submittal forms.


Submission Deadline: Saturday, February 22, 3 p.m.
