Young at Art

As a way to help young entrepreneurs shine, the addition of the Young at Art children’s market gives students ages 8 to 18 an opportunity to learn the arts. Students will sell their hand-made items on Saturday of the festival underneath tents on the grounds of the Walter Anderson Museum of Art. Festival goers will get to meet the young artists and purchase their one of a kind works.

Requirements

The exhibit will open Saturday, November 5th at 9:00 a.m. during the Peter Anderson Arts & Crafts Festival and close the same day at 3:00 p.m.   All art work must be original and executed by the student selling it.  Walter Anderson Museum of Art (WAMA) will provide tables and canopies at the students’ request.

Works must adhere to general community standards; WAMA reserves full curatorial rights (works may not contain rude or lewd content).

Electricity is not available.

Fee:  Free to students (with or without a table)

Table Size:  3 feet x 6 feet

Total space allotted:  5x10 feet (booths must be shared by a minimum of 2 students and up to 4)

INSURANCE: All accepted works will be insured while on WAMA premises. Artists should indicate insurance value on the entry form. 

DELIVERY OF WORKS:

Students are responsible for setting up and breaking down their own booth on the day of the event.  WAMA will not be responsible for collecting artwork or funds associated.  Students maintain the right to keep 100% of the profit from the sale of their own work.  Students under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

REPRODUCTION: Submission of an entry gives the Walter Anderson Museum of Art the right to reproduce accepted works for promotional and educational purposes.
