A one-day Teen Arts Festival is held annually in early May. Any teen from throughout Atlantic County is invited to display their talent, meet with professionals in the field and attend hands-on workshops or master classes.
The Atlantic County Teen Arts is part of a statewide multidisciplinary program in the fine and performing arts. It has been available to young people in Atlantic County in varying formats since 1969. Open to any student in public or private school, as well as home-schooled students and those who are involved in extra-curricular private instruction, the program encompasses activities in dance, theater, vocal music, instrumental music, film, photography, creative writing and the visual arts.
The Atlantic County Festival is coordinated by the Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs in collaboration with Stockton University, the Noyes Museum/Stockton, Hammonton Art Center, The Eagle Theatre, Hammonton Arts District and other arts and educational organizations.
We encourage area artists, teachers, school administrators and parents of teens active in the fine and performing arts to work with us to provide an even wider range of programs and opportunities for the Atlantic County Teen Arts Program. Your comments and ideas are welcomed. Please contact the Atlantic County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs at (609) 646-8699, Ext. 6314.
