28th Annual Conference for Young Artists

  • YA

    By participating in the Conference for Young Artists, students will use their imaginations to create and design their own works of art. Presenters will share their knowledge and talent with students by teaching them art techniques and methods. Teachers and parents can help students expand their imaginations and build creativity by encouraging them to try new art techniques. These programs can open doors to potential higher education and career opportunities for students.

    This conference is open to all students in grades K-8.

    Keynote Speaker: Kevin Horner, comedy ventriloquist
    My name is Kevin Horner. I am a comedy ventriloquist. I entertain for comedy clubs, corporations, fair/festivals and educational shows. I have been voted as Gig Masters top comedy ventriloquist 6 years straight! Voted as a three times “Peoples Choice Award Winner” for the art of ventriloquism. At one time, I was a known anti- bullying prevention speaker in the Midwest part of the country. I’m an avid fly fisherman and love the outdoors. My biggest passion in life is, hopefully, I’m making a difference in the lives of people.
