What is Fine Arts?
Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool of the AG Youth Ministries designed to help students discover, develop, and deploy their ministry gifts and to learn about their God-given abilities and talents.
We, along with leaders and family members, encourage students to develop their gifts and then use them in their schools, churches, and communities. Fine Arts Festivals enable students to experience a time of learning through evaluations, workshops, and interaction with other students.
Beginning in September each year, over 65,000 junior and senior high school students begin preparing their entries for the district and National Fine Arts Festivals. These students are encouraged to develop their gifts to a greater level than the year before. Students may enter as many as 80+ categories offered in 7 main divisions: Art, Communication, Dance, Drama, Instrumental, Vocal, and Writing. For more information about getting involved, contact the youth office at your district.
Fine Arts has the potential to be much more than “just a festival.” We desire to stand together with students as they open the doors to their futures.
Who Can Participate in Fine Arts?
Only students currently enrolled in grades 6-12 may participate in the Fine Arts Festival. When is it? February 20th.
Where is it?
The sectional festival will be hosted at Harvest Church in Truscksville, and students are welcome to ride there in the church van. Due to space, parents are asked to ride separately. The location for the district level festival (should students advance) has not yet been announced.
How Many Categories Can a Student Enter?
There is no longer an entry limit guideline. Students may enter as many categories per Division as they wish. However, students may not enter the same category of a division more than once. A full list of categories can be found in the rule book.
