About the event

The Young Authors and Artists Conference, spanning over 30 years, has been a source of inspiration and a platform for more than 15,000 talented students at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Students ranging from third to 12th grade spend a day immersed in the company of fellow passionate authors and artists.

To secure your seat, please follow the provided links. Schools and districts are required to send one teacher for every five registered students, with teachers attending free of charge.

Registration includes museum admission, snacks, lunch, and the invaluable opportunity to be surrounded by some of the most passionate young authors and artists in the area.

During the conference, young authors embark on a museum tour then create their own written piece. They receive constructive feedback from their peers and are given time to revise their pieces.

In the spring, the museum hosts a Showcase Party, where students and their families return to celebrate their work. Authors have the chance to read their pieces at an open mic session, while artists can showcase their artwork in the esteemed Windhover Hall.

The conference warmly welcomes public, private, and homeschooled students, and registration operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited space in the museum, registration will be closed once all 500 seats are filled.

This program brings together young people from diverse schools and backgrounds who share a profound love for writing and art. The conference serves as a platform for students to learn, collaborate, and find inspiration from the museum's world-class art.

The conference is proudly sponsored by the Kettle Moraine School District in partnership with the Milwaukee Art Museum.
