Emerging artists seminar set

MANCHESTER — Eighty-five students from across the Granite State will come to the N.H. Institute of Art on March 22 for the first annual Emerging Artists Seminar—a redesign of the former New Hampshire Allstate Art Festival. These high school juniors will spend the day on the campus of the Institute immersed in all things art.

On the day of the seminar, students will choose from a variety of seminars including painting, printmaking, metalsmithing, illustration, graphic design, ceramics and photography. An afternoon Art Walk/Art Share will showcase the artwork created by students in the morning seminars. There will also be an opportunity in the afternoon for portfolio reviews.

Originally started in 1999 as the New Hampshire Allstate Art Festival, the event has been brought back for 2014 with a slight redesign. The seminar will bring together committed and emerging young artists from across the state who are considering professional careers in the visual arts. Art educators are asked to nominate up to two juniors from their classes with attendees selected from the pool of nominees.
