Express yourself, be creative and make an impression! It will be messy and fun. You'll work with all kinds of materials and create something that no one has seen before.
What can you do?
In the crafts and fine arts project, you can:
- Learn skills, techniques and tools in various art forms, including drawing, painting, sculpting, printing, fiber arts or graphic design.
- Visit art galleries, shops or an artist's studio.
These are just some of the many ways you can participate in this project.
What does it mean to show at the fair?
For 4-H'ers, local and state showcase events (like the Minnesota State Fair) are not just fun events. They provide youth opportunities to exhibit the knowledge and skills they've gained throughout the year– and to continue their learning.
Contact your local 4-H office for crafts and fine arts project showcase opportunities near you.
