The ECU School of Art and Design, the Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge, and the City of Greenville will present The Fifteenth Annual Youth Arts Festival this Fall on Town Common in Greenville, NC.

The festival will bring over 150 visual and performing artists to campus who will share their creative talents with the children of our community. Varied talented musical, dance and theatrical groups will also be featured at the festival. Children will have the opportunity to visit with artists demonstrating activities such as wheel thrown ceramics, traditional watercolor painting, weaving, blacksmithing, paper-making, printmaking, sculpture, portraiture and a myriad of other visual art media. Featured visual artists will come from surrounding states, North Carolina, Greenville, and from the School of Art and Design at East Carolina University. There will be professional multi-cultural musicians performing at the Amphitheater from 10am-1pm, and the Youth Creative Expressions Talent Show will go from 1-4pm.

Children will also have the opportunity to create their own artwork with the help of professional artists and art students. There will be lots of other fun and exciting interactive activities for children of all ages during the day. The Youth Arts Festival will be a day full of "fun and adventure." All children, families and individuals interested in the arts are welcome.

We will also have exciting stage acts all day!

All events are free and open to the public.
