Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services and Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) Loudoun Campus have announced plans to launch an emerging artist festival highlighting the talents of young “makers and creators.” Lights on Loudoun provides a venue for area students to showcase their talents in the visual and performing arts. The event will be held Saturday, April 6, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the Loudoun campus located at 21200 Campus Drive, Sterling, Virginia, 20164.
The festival offers a safe environment where young artists can share their work, meet up-and-coming artists, collaborate and learn from professional artists and performers. Event participants will have access to free installation workshops, Q & A sessions, opportunities to discover higher education offerings in the performing and fine arts and a hospitality suite during the live event.
Students 14 and older currently attending a high school in Loudoun County or being home-schooled, and NOVA students with a valid ID for the spring 2019 semester, are eligible to participate.
