An upcoming generation of artists tried out their skills at East Carolina University March 29 during the 10th Annual Youth Arts Festival. The annual event promotes multicultural visual and performing arts for children through hands-on projects, demonstrations and performances.

At the event, children enjoyed an opportunity to participate or watch demonstrations of activities such as wheel thrown ceramics, watercolor painting, weaving, blacksmithing, batik, printmaking, jewelry and lapidary. Featured visual artists came from surrounding states, North Carolina, Greenville and the ECU School of Art at Design.

Performance artists scheduled to perform this year included the ECU Storybook Theatre, Cirque de Vol, Magic by David, Twisted Knot and Steve Myott Puppets.
