Youth Arts & Sciences Display
Tuesday, August 7
Greetings unto all our young aspiring Artisans of the Known World, and to their parents/caregivers, from Mistress Safia al-Khansaa',
Coordinator of the Youth Arts and Sciences Display!
This will be the seventh year for the Display. There are few things more inspiring to see than our young people
picking up the torch of creative passion and carrying it on into future generations!
Artisans through the age of 17 from all Kingdoms are invited to showcase their projects.
There will also be an area for them to share their talents in the performance arts.
The Display is an absolutely wonderful opportunity for our youths to share their creative endeavors!
It gives children of all ages a chance to shine as artists and craftspeople in their own right, and to learn and grow within the
Arts and Sciences community of the Society. By having their very own Display, our youths have the chance to stand out and
be recognized by Peers, Royalty, and the entire Populace, in a supportive, nurturing, and educational environment.
I look forward to once again meeting all of our talented youths at the Display (as well as their parents
and/or caregivers) and seeing the results of their outstanding artistic efforts!
In Service to our Youth, and to the Arts, I remain Yours,
The Display will take place on Tuesday, August 7th.
8:00 am - 9:00 am Artists bring in entries
9:00 am - noon Display open to the public
noon - 1 pm Pick up entries (Entries not picked up will be turned over to Lost and Found and can be retrieved there.)
Entrants can register on the day of the display, or preregister online or at Pennsic.
strongly encouraged. This will give us an idea of how many children are participating,
as well as the space required. This will also save parents time on the day of the display, and hopefully make things a little
easier for you and your child.
All children displaying are requested to fill out one form per item to be displayed.
There is a limit of 3 items per child.
It is important that the child be encouraged to fill out as much of the form as possible on their own, in their own words.
To accomplish this, there are several different versions of the form, that have been written according to age/grade level.
The form will provide basic information for each item displayed, including some space for documentation.
Online pre-registration is open through July 25th.
Please select a form based on the grade your child completed before Pennsic:
While registering online, please allow your child to participate in the process. Make sure that the information you provide is in
their own words, as much as possible.
You can get a registration form at Youth Point or University Point. Please fill it out and return it to Youth Point
before the exhibit on Tuesday, August 7th.
Those who pre-register on-line or on-site will be served with a special Express Check-in Line on the day of the exhibit.
Anyone signing up on the day of the exhibit will be helped on a first-come, first-served basis, as space allows.
No programs, activities, or events taking place at Pennsic War are intended as a
substitute for the proper adult supervision of minors. This includes the Youth Arts and
Sciences Display. Supervision
A parent or court-appointed guardian must accompany their child while she/he attends the
Display. Please plan accordingly.
Tables will be provided for the Display. Space limitations in the Youth Tent will require youth artisans to share table space.
There will be a table space limit of 4 square feet (2'x2') for each artisan. There is a limit of 3 items per child, and these must fit within the
designated space. If the child's work requires a larger space
a table may be brought for their work, however, space is VERY LIMITED, so please be prepared for the possibility that there may not be
Please bring your own stands, easels, dress forms, tablecloths and other methods to display your work to its best advantage.
Again, since this Display is taking place in the Youth Tent rather than the Barn, space is much more limited.
Please keep this in mind when helping your child plan her/his display.
Children displaying garb have the option of wearing the outfit, in order to display the garments properly. This is strongly encouraged
as it will help conserve space and show the garb in its proper context.
Children have the option of staying throughout the duration of the Display, or they may leave.
Parents or legal caregivers MUST supervise their child at all times. The children are allowed to "take breaks," and leave for a while,
get a drink, etc.
The Display is right next to the playground, and children will be allowed to go out and play for a while if they choose.
This is strongly encouraged for younger children especially. Children and parents who would like to stay with their entry for the
Display are encouraged to bring chairs.
Please prepare for the possibility of inclement weather when helping your child to
plan her/his entry, in order to protect their work.
