We are proud to include the Youth Art Show in the Shoreline Arts Festival each year at no cost to students. The Arts Festival is the largest event that the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council presents annually, and it is made possible in part by the generous support of individuals and families that we engage. To keep the Youth Art Show alive for years to come, please consider making a donation when you register.
FOR ADULTS: VOLUNTEER TO SUPPORT THE YOUTH ART SHOW AND THE SHORELINE ARTS FESTIVAL
We rely on volunteers (parents and students 16 and over) to monitor the Youth Art Show during the Arts Festival open hours, as well as to assist with art drop-off and pick-up. Volunteer shifts are usually 2 hours. Young artists are welcome to help their parents with volunteer tasks if appropriate.
