16th Annual Arts in the Middle Conference – WAITING LIST ONLY


The Middle Level Arts Conference is now full. Please click here to add your school to the waiting list in the event of a cancellation.

The 16th Annual Arts in the Middle Conference will be held on May 23, 2017, at the University of Hartford’s Art School. The conference promotes the arts by providing middle school students with opportunities to explore their artistic abilities within the context of challenging, hands-on workshops.

Mainstays of the event are the ever-popular acrylic mixed media, pen and ink drawing, photograms and wire sculpture workshops. New this year are sessions on scratch art and cartooning!

Art teachers are encouraged to participate in workshops. It is a great opportunity to learn how to work in a new medium. Working artists lead all the workshops and bring examples of their own work or portfolios.

The cost of the conference, including supplies and lunch, is only $25 per attendee from CAS member schools. There are limits to the number of participants in each session to ensure that each student gets individual attention and that all go home with two completed projects.
