The 11th Annual Youth Arts Festival brought children of all ages to campus March 28 despite cold, damp weather that moved the festival inside the Jenkins Fine Arts Building.

More than 150 visual and performing artists shared their talents with children, allowing them to create their own art or watch demonstrations of such activities as ceramics, watercolor painting, sculpture, silk screen, stamping, metals, jewelry making, sculpture and musical instruments.

Performing artists scheduled to appear included Twisted Knot, Steve Myott, Cirque de Vol, ECU Parindey, Hmong Student Association, Paperhand Puppet, The Magic of African Rhythm, Magic by Jazzy, Zumba with Joy and William Seymour.

The event is hosted annually by the ECU School of Art and Design. For additional information visit http://www.ecu.edu/cs-cfac/soad/youth-arts.cfm.
