Young Artists Market
Every year, Arts in the Heart of Augusta welcomes young artists to sell their arts and crafts in the Young Artists Market. It is a free opportunity for school-age artists under the age of 18 to begin their art careers and hone their business skills. Artists in the Young Artist Market are free to sell for as long or as little as they want, though the space is first-come-first-serve. Please pre-register your young artist today to receive important updates and give the planning committee an idea of how many artists to expect. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR YOUNG ARTIST MARKET
