Artists for Kids (AFK) and the North Vancouver School District (NVSD) are excited to partner to spotlight excellence in the arts through the Young Artist of the Week program

The Young Artist of the Week program provides recognition to student artists and raises public awareness of the importance of the diverse Arts education offered in schools across the North Vancouver School District.​ This year, the program has expanded to include visual arts, music, dance and drama

Starting the week of May 24, 2021, students who have been nominated by their schools will be recognized on the AFK and NVSD websites and social media channels. Each weekly spotlight includes a photo of a student with their work in arts and a short biography

The Young Artist of the Week program exemplifies how a community comes together, celebrating and supporting children and youth in the community. For over 30 years, the North Shore News partnered with AFK, providing recognition to student artists and raising public awareness of the importance of arts education in North Vancouver School District schools and community. AFK is extremely thankful to the North Shore News for their generosity and grateful to continue this tradition, now with the North Vancouver School District
