The Hamilton County Artists' Association (HCAA) is seeking applicants for the newly formed Youth Membership Council. The Youth Membership Council is designed to encourage students to experience different art forms, display their artwork, learn from professional artists, and build community. There will be opportunities to build leadership and teamwork skills as well as for volunteer hours during community events such as Fairyville, Art Fair on the Square, HCAA Art Camp, and other events. This group is open to students in grades 7-12 in Hamilton County and will meet once a month to collaborate with other local youth artists. Each meeting will focus on a different topic and may feature an artist from the Juried Artist Membership of the HCAA. This will be an opportunity for youth to learn about the artist’s specialty and to ask questions about the artist's journey and inspiration. The council is member-driven and open to suggestions on the topics the students want to learn about.
Membership will be limited to 15 applicants.
Youth interested in entering must:
• Be resident of Hamilton County, Indiana, currently in grades 7-12
• Commit to attend and participate in monthly meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, January through June 2023.
• Complete the entire application form and include 3 samples of your own artwork
• Submit your application by December 16, 2022 (You will be notified of your selection by January 9, 2023)
There will be an information session on Wednesday, November 16 from 6:30 - 8:30 PM
at the HCAA Art Center, 195 South 5th Street, Noblesville, IN 46060.
