Youth Art Enrichment
November 5, 2014 - November 8, 2014
Youth Art Enrichment is a program annually hosted by the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture in Dawson City, Yukon. During this event 48 artistic high school students from across the Yukon come to partake in four intensive days of art workshops with a professional artist. There are four courses to choose from to hone their skills through exercises and exploration of ways to express their creative ideas.
This program is open to high students who hold an interest in the arts, aged 14 and up.
The cost is $100 to participate. This fee goes towards accommodation (The Downtown Hotel). It’s recommended to also bring at least $60 to purchase dinners from Tuesday to Friday (The final dinner on Saturday will be provided). Transportation, art supplies, remaining hotel costs, breakfasts and lunches will be provided.
- Youth Art Enrichment is an invaluable experience and opportunity for the creative student to broaden their understanding of the creative discipline of their choosing.
- Along with the coursework, activities are presented which encourage students to discuss and learn about career and educational options, begin their portfolio, and socialize with like-minded peers.
- Work created by students will be exhibited at the Robert Service School in Dawson City and Yukon Arts Centre in Whitehorse.
