YoungArts Regional Programs Continue to Change the Lives of Young Artists!

Each year, the National YoungArts Foundation hosts regional programs in Los Angeles, Miami, and New York which are modeled after its signature national program, National YoungArts Week, held annually in Miami, where the organization is headquartered. Throughout the week, participants work with renowned artists, who offer them support, advice and encouragement to pursue their passions and a career in the arts. Through these regional programs, YoungArts engages hundreds of Winners, who were chosen from a pool of more than 11,000 applications from 15-18 old (or grades 10-12) artists from around the country. Winners also have an opportunity to receive cash awards of up to $10,000 (YoungArts has bestowed over $12 million in monetary awards to date); are afforded access to significant scholarships (in the past two years alone, YoungArts has facilitated in excess of $60 million in scholarship opportunities); and are eligible to be recognized as a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, as YoungArts is the exclusive nominating agency for this high honor for artistically talented graduating high school seniors.

The YoungArts Los Angeles Regional Program occurred February 17-22, 2015, and offered approximately 100 aspiring artists – all of whom were 2015 YoungArts Winners – life-changing experiences. During YoungArts Los Angeles, these emerging artists participated in interdisciplinary workshops and intensive master classes with renowned masters in their field, including dance legend Debbie Allen (Dance); Chief Curator of Contemporary Art at LACMA Franklin Sirmans (Visual Arts); acclaimed Los Angeles-based design duo the Haas Brothers (Design); Tony Award nominee Malcolm Gets (Theater); and the award-winning independent filmmaking duo of Nancy Savoca and Rich Guay (Cinematic Arts).During YoungArts Los Angeles, participants also shared their talents with the public through three multidisciplinary performances, a cinematic arts screening, and a visual arts exhibition at the Los Angeles Theater Center on Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles.

A few weeks after YoungArts Los Angeles concluded, the YoungArts Miami Regional Program took place.  Over 100 YoungArts Winners gathered in Miami March 10-15, 2015 to work with Master Artists such as YoungArts Alumna Zuzanna Szadkowski, Phillip Neal, John Heginbotham and Kristy Edmunds, and showcased their creativity through performances, readings, exhibitions and screenings on the YoungArts Campus and at the Colony Theatre.

Next month, more talented YoungArts Winners will be heading to the city where dreams are made of to participate in the YoungArts New York Regional Program, taking place from April 27 to May 3, 2015.
