The artists also had the opportunity to learn about and participate in every aspect of the exhibition process, from creating the exhibit's invitation in a graphic design workshop to writing artist statements. The students also learned about the concepts and skills involved in curating and hanging a professional exhibition.

YOUNG ARTISTS 2019 Graphic Design Workshop
Students from each participating high school were selected by their teachers to participate in a full-day workshop led by graphic design educators from the Bedford Central Schools and analyzed the elements of successful design.

Greeley students Maddie Gaudet and Claire Mullens were introduced to contemporary examples of graphic art preparation for their own work.

From these works, one piece was selected by the workshop participants and Katonah Museum Board, staff and volunteers on the basis of originality of concept, execution of the idea and how well it represents the Young Artists exhibition.
