UPCOMING EVENTS

MASTER WORKSHOP

May 31, 2018
8:30am-1:30pm

During the three festival days of the New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival, esteemed young artists, teachers and professional artists from around the state come to critique, as well as to teach workshops and master classes in their individual specialties, including drama, filmmaking, voice, acting, instrumental music and more.

Prior to the New Jersey State Teen Arts Festival, at County Teen Arts Festivals, students in their home schools prepare and practice their chosen art presentations for critiques and critical analysis, in one or two arts disciplines. Students who excel in their particular art form at their County Teen Arts Festival are selected to be sent to the state level. 

Emari DiGiorgio will offer three one-hour master classes for high school students selected for poetry.
