Children and Youth Activities at Phillips Mill

The Youth Art Exhibition takes place in January. High schools within a 25 mile radius of
the Mill are invited to participate. The Art Departments at participating schools choose
the works to be exhibited, which can include sculpture, fine art and photography. The
works are juried for prizes funded by Mill members who are sponsors of the show. The
show is open on the last three weekends in January displaying approximately 100
pieces.

In the summer, a theater program for children and teens takes place. Rehearsals take
place in July, with a performance in late July or early August. It’s a great place to
engage the children and grandchildren of Mill members and to build the confidence of
young thespians.
