Welcome to Teen Arts!

Dear Arts Educator,

Your school is cordially invited to attend the Virtual 2021 Morris County Teen Arts Festival on Friday, May 14th. The festival will be completely virtual. Workshops begin at 9:00 a.m.

This year’s theme is Heritage. The experience this past year under quarantine has perhaps made us more aware or mindful of our families. Heritage is a person’s unique sense of family and identity: the values, traditions, culture, experiences and artifacts that are handed down to us. The word “heritage” means different things to different people—and it should. Heritage is the positive and meaningful elements of our family’s identity that we use in our own lives and choose to pass on to succeeding generations.
Heritage can express itself in many ways. Some may point to values that have been passed on, such as loyalty or charity, participation in community life, religious devotion or public service. Some may express a passion for sport, music, specialized training or education.

Others may feel that aptitudes, such as for craft, business, literature or art, or attitudes such as being tolerant, easygoing, humorous or persevering, are a part of their heritage. Understanding our own heritage can help us to appreciate the unique heritage of others. Those who feel moved to respond to this theme may submit artwork of any media to the special exhibition category of Heritage in the Visual Arts submission section. Those who wish to express this theme through performance may subtitle their work with the word Heritage as part of the description.
