At 701 CCA: How talented young artists spent their summer vacation

Go Columbia for Aug. 17: Celebration of young artists at 701 CCA

Young artists will be celebrated Sunday at the 701 Whaley’s Farmers Market.

The works on display will be a product of the summer art workshops at 701 Center for Contemporary Art. The students who participated range in age from 6 to 17 and their creations represent several media, including painting, printmaking and ceramics.

The celebration will also include food vendors, art games, demonstrations, and live music performed by teenaged singer-songwriter Paisley Marie and teen indie band MyBrother MySister.

Students from summer art programs at the Nickelodeon Theater, the Mad Platter and Anne Brodie’s Carolina Ballet will also perform.

The purpose of the event is to celebrate young artists in all art forms in our community. “I invited other organizations to join us to bring other art types and youths into the mix,” said 701 CCA Director Sheldon Paschal. “We hope that this annual event will grow each year with more kids and organizations involved.”

The Celebrating Young Artists Festival will be held from 2-6 p.m. at 701 Whaley’s Farmers Market. Admission is free for 701 CCA members and children under 18. A donation of $5 is suggested for all others.
