The conference is also open to 4-H staff, adult 4-H volunteers and adults who work with youth in a variety of educational settings. The 2017 conference is for individuals who are willing to re-teach the skills they learn and knowledge they gain in their communities.


The 2017 4-H Visual Arts, Crafts, Clothing and Textiles Workshop objectives are for participants to:

  • Get energized with lots of new ideas for working with youth in visual arts, crafts, clothing and textile projects.
  • Learn how youth can develop life skills by participating in the arts.
  • Support and encourage creativity in 4-H projects.
  • Discover how leadership, citizenship, entrepreneurship, career development, and science skill development can be a part of your projects.
  • Meet and share ideas with 4-H teen and adult volunteers from around the state
  • Develop a county plan of action for using the new knowledge and skills back home.
