Arts in the Middle Conference

“Arts In The Middle” is an all-day conference for outstanding art students. Connecticut middle schools are invited to send four arts students and an art teacher to the first annual “Arts in the Middle” program, sponsored by the Hartford Art School of the University of Hartford.

The event features hands-on workshops taught by practicing artist from around the state. The goals of the program are to:

  • Give statewide visibility to the fine arts and promote the arts among middle level students
  • Provide opportunities for art students from diverse backgrounds to work together
  • Offer middle level art students a high caliber artistic challenge
  • Give art teachers an opportunity to create their own works.
