The Youth Expressions Art Project (YEAP) Exhibition is an annual event produced by The Art Education Programs of Pitt County, Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge, East Carolina University College of Fine Arts and Communication, and The City of Greenville Police Department, along with support from various local sponsors.


This is the seventh year of the project. Beginning in 2006, the project and exhibit is an effort to create community awareness by creating art reflecting the problems and issues that local students, were experiencing in their daily lives.


The Exhibition showcases local student artwork from Pitt County schools, grades Kindergarten through High School and is focused on a specific theme. Previous YEAP themes include: Say No to Drugs and Alcohol, Space Exploration, Science, and biology, and Physical Fitness. The theme for 2013 is Habitats, Ecosystems, & Surfaces.


The 2013 Youth Expressions Art Project invites students to think about the interconnectedness of habitats, surfaces and ecosystems by creating original artwork. Students explore the relationships of balanced ecosystems for life on land, in the water, and in space, with the role of human responsibility coming to the forefront.


To promote the project and exhibition, elements of student artwork were incorporated into the promotional materials for the event, giving them a one-of-a-kind and personal nature. The goal was to produce professional-level marketing materials, while also involving the teachers and students in creating something to be proud of while giving something back to the Pitt County/Greenville community.


The 2013 Youth Expressions Art Project Exhibition will be on display in The Greenville Mall Grand Court, April 14 – 24 and is free to the public.


To combat the problems with the typical job hunt process, Woody Holliman has resorted to sneakier means of getting in front of people. These guerrilla tactics may be unconventional but they are more satisfactory than the standard approach because these strategies allow you to arrange dozens of interviews with agencies you want to work for, and you are typically only competing with two to three other applicants.

I could go on and on about Skillshare, but the real point is because of my AIGA membership I was able to utilize another resource to make me a well round creative person.

Letterpress and screen printing have been going through a renaissance, a movement that is clearly evident in Durham, North Carolina. In a world where digital work is easily accessed and distributed, it’s nice to see custom printing making a comeback with local artists and designers. Our November Homegrown highlighted four of those local artists.
