What is Youth Art Enrichment (YAE)?
Now in its 17th year, YAE is an annual four-day intensive art program for Yukon youth hosted by the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture in Dawson City.

Artistically-inclined youth (aged 14-18) travel from across the Yukon to take part in intensive workshops with a professional artist. Students will choose one of three courses to study for the duration of the program, in which they will hone their skills through daily exercises and explore creative ways to express their ideas.

When is YAE?
Previously held over four days during the first week in November, the program will now be held from March 19-22, 2018. Students coming from out of town will travel to Dawson from Whitehorse on March 18 and return on March 23. A bus will be provided by the Department of Education.

What workshops are being offered in 2018?

Lead by local DIY print-master, this immersive workshop will run through a variety of basic concepts that are part of many different printmaking techniques. You’ll work with stencils, stamps, block printing, and screen printing, giving you the skills to print your own posters, shirts, art, signs, stamps. Once you learn these basic skills, the skies the limit! The focus will be on experimenting, “Do It Yourself” skills and recycled and re-purposed tools. In this workshop you will: make stamps, make stencils, learn to silkscreen, and combine techniques to make mixed media pieces.

Collage and Mixed Media

Collage technique is an excellent vehicle for learning and practicing the elements and principals of design. The mixed media portion of the program takes the collage one step further, incorporating drawing, painting and relief.
