    Returning for its fourth year, Young at Art aims to instill a love for the arts in young people by inspiring them with performances from their peers and engaging them in participatory arts activities. Moreover, this expo provides a one-stop shop for parents to explore the range of arts classes and camps offered in the Lehigh Valley. Oh yea, and it’s completely FREE to attend!

    Join us for Young at Art from 10 am to 2 pm on March 9, 2019 at Penn State Lehigh Valley. 

    In 2018, nearly 950 parents and children enjoyed a day of fun and creative arts exploration. You won’t want to miss out on Young at Art in 2019—we’ve expanded the floor plan to minimize congestion and accommodate more visitors. As many as twenty-five exhibitors representing the performing, literary, media and visual arts will be involved. Free admission to the expo is provided to the public.

    Come dance, sing, create, and play! Young at Art is a fun-filled day of arts exploration for the whole family, providing a way for arts groups to promote their unique educational opportunities and connect with the community.

    Exhibitor and Sponsor information coming soon.
