“YoungArts’ master artists are some of the most distinguished and accomplished artists in their fields. These master artists support YoungArts’ mission to cultivate and inspire the next generation of artists by graciously lending their time and expertise to work with YoungArts participants in each of our ten disciplines. Spending time with these master artists in an intimate setting, YoungArts participants come away with inspiring and life-changing experiences.
YoungArts master artists serve in a wide variety of capacities; as discipline coordinators, national reviewers, selection panelists, master teachers, editors and curators. These master artists, each at different points in their careers and with unique perspectives on their art form, represent the myriad of versions of what it means to be a successful artist, and have helped many students understand what it takes to make a career and find fulfillment in the arts.”
