Youth Arts Festival

Discover the artist within your child this summer at the Spanish Fork Youth Arts Festival, June 4-15! The Youth Arts Festival is a two week creative arts experience for children ages 18 months to 18 years; that aims to engage and enrich young children through music, dance, art, literature, drama, and so much more! This unique program is the only one of its kind nationwide. The full two-week duration, as well as the large amount of classes offered and the low cost has made it a model that many city arts programs have wanted to emulate. We continue to bring a wide variety of classes offered each year. This year will include art, culinary, and dance classes for all ages, Youtheatre, gymnastics, cupcake wars, and Lego Art - all back by popular demand! We have something for everyone, including an adaptable art class for kids with special needs. The Spanish Fork Youth Arts Festival is exceptional, with professional teachers, there is something for EVERY child. Nourish your child's creativity, imagination and artistic ability through the Youth Arts Festival!

The festival will be held at Spanish Fork High School.

First Graders and Preschool have the opportunity to study Life Cycles first-hand with their caterpillars. They are delivered less than a half-inch, and grow to this size within 10 days. At this point they will climb to the top of the container and look for the perfect roosting spot.  (picture 1)

After 10 days of gorging themselves and shedding their too-tight skin several times, they have made their cocoons to transition to the butterfly phase.  This process will take 7-10 days. (picture 2)
