CAAC’s 2021 Virtual Youth Art Show Opens May 1st

The Cheboygan Area Arts Council is excited to announce its second annual Virtual Youth Art Show. The 2021 show will be hosted on the Cheboygan Opera House website and promoted online and around town.

The CAAC brings work from over 100+ youth art students each year. Homeschoolers and students from Bishop Baraga, Cheboygan Area High, Middle, and Elementary schools are displaying their best work. 

“I would like to keep doing this every year,” says CAAC executive director Kathy Johnson. “The online edition is like Grandma’s refrigerator. We will leave the pictures up forever so students, their friends and relatives can continue to go back to see their work. It is so beautiful. I love seeing their artwork up. It makes me laugh, it makes me cry, it makes me think. And it is fun to just click through the pictures and enjoy the imagination of so many talented young people.” 

Cheboygan area teachers, led by art teachers Amy Ives and Sean McNeil, contribute their students’ art work. Submissions from parents are also welcomed. Because of confidentiality policies all artwork must be accompanied by a consent from a parent, giving permission for the CAAC to put their child’s work online. There is no cost and entries are juried for age appropriateness. 

You can check out the 2021 Virtual Youth Art Show online starting May 1st. To submit artwork, fill out the form below. The art show will not be judged this year. Questions? Email Lisa at
