Teen Spirit 2018

December 2 – 15, 2018

Opening Reception: Sunday, December 2 from 2 – 4 p.m.

The Yeiser Art Center (YAC) is pleased to be hosting our 25th annual Teen Spirit Exhibition. Work completed wihtin one year will be accepted from students grades 9 – 12 in the Tri-State Area. Teachers and students are encouraged to submit unlimited entries no later than Sunday, October 28, 2018 at Midnight CST. Entries can be submitted using our online Google Form

Yeiser Art Center looks forward each year to this partnership with our regional high school and home school students as well as their teachers and parents. YAC will be displaying the massive amount of art in the salon style, or stacked, sometimes two or three pieces high on the wall. Using this style accommodates the additional goal of showcasing a far greater number of works, thereby rewarding the efforts of more young artists and encouraging their continued creativity. YAC will be FULL of art!

Teen Spirit was created in 1993 as a part of an ongoing effort to support the area’s art programs and to recognize the talented youth of the region. Teen Spirit has come to symbolize the success of art education in the area. This show is a tribute to all the schools, students, teachers and other art professionals, whose outstanding work and enthusiasm over the years have been integral to the success of the exhibition. Including a broader range of schools gives the exhibition a truly regional aspect that builds upon its history as a showcase for secondary school students.
