About the event

For over three decades, The Art of Writing: Young Authors and Artists Conference has been a wellspring of inspiration, empowering more than 15,000 talented students within the embrace of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Students ranging from third to twelfth grade come together, united by their passion for creative expression.

Schools and districts are required to have one teacher accompany every group of five registered students. Teacher admission is complimentary.

Teachers will facilitate a small group of 10 students from a mix of all participating schools. Student registration includes museum entry, refreshments, lunch, and the opportunity to be surrounded by and work with some of the most passionate young authors and artists in the area.

This year's Art of Writing Conference is undergoing a shift in response to feedback we've received. The conference now allows for more extensive exploration of the museum's art pieces and grants authors and artists additional time to refine their craft. Gone is the pressure of producing a finished piece within a single school day. What remains unwavering is the exceptional feedback participants receive from their group members. Furthermore, the cost of the conference for students has been reduced by more than 30%.

What will the day look like?

For our young authors, the day begins with a museum tour, seeking a piece that resonates with their soul. Using the workshop model to create their story, students receive invaluable feedback from their peers. Simultaneously, young artists embark on their own museum exploration, crafting their art in various mediums: drawing for grades 6 through 12;  3D work or photography for grades 9 through 12. Artists benefit from constructive input from peers and professionals.

Conference attendees will also receive a free pass to the museum, allowing students to return to the museum with their loved ones. This is a chance to explore the museum afresh and share the artworks that inspired their work.

The conference is a partnership of the Kettle Moraine School District and the Milwaukee Art Museum."
