YOUTH PROGRAM : African American Celebration of the Arts

FEB 11 - YOUTH PROGRAM : African American Celebration of the Arts

  • Saturday, February 11, 2017
  • 1:00pm  6:00pm



Our youth program on Saturday features an immersive theater workshop with Jill Jeffrey | Gemini Children's Theater that will allow youth to create and perform their own mini-plays! We will also have face painting activities, and numerous vendors on site (AVON, local handmade jewelry, pottery and more) ! We will also be giving away a free semester of classes to one lucky guest! 

This year more than ever, we want to celebrate and cultivate local talent. Our 2017 festival theme is It Takes A Village. We want to utilize the work of homegrown artists, young and old, and highlight their work in new ways. Pittsburgh is blessed with many strong, influential and vibrant arts-based artists, and we here at Ryan Arts (a Focus on Renewal Program) are determined to provide enriching experiences in the arts for families and individuals.

We will have Facepainting, dance performances, interactive theater, community discussion, a dance party, food and family activities over a weekend of African American Art! We will also be doing three drawings for a free semester of classes!
