PETOSKEY: As part of the Youth Arts Festival, CTACPetoskey will be hosting the Crooked Tree Arts Selfie Project—a celebration of the age-old art of self-portrait made new. In the age of Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, and a camera on every device, we see “selfies” on a daily basis. The goal of the Selfie Project is to promote positive, age-appropriate, artistic self-expression for students and families in Charlevoix and Emmet Counties.

Entry Details:

  • There is no entry fee to participate.
  • Enter online April 12 – 25.
  • A $25 iTunes gift card will be given to three honorable mentions in each age group (elementary, middle and high school).
  • A pop-up exhibit and award reception will be held on April 30. More information to follow soon.

Kids in grades 4 through 8 can learn more about artistic self-expression during the Selfie Project spring break camp, which runs from April 4 to April 8 at CTAC-Petoskey.

In the week-long camp, students will learn how to capture themselves in a photograph, tell a story, and digitally manipulate images. They will experience the art of photography and how to work with a digital camera, as well as using Adobe’s Photoshop to enhance the quality of an image. At the end of this week-long camp, students will have created a Selfie that may be printed or shared with friends and family.

The Youth Arts Festival is made possible by generous support from the Kroeger-Mainland Family Fund of Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation.
