SPARTA, NJ- The Teen Arts Festival is held every year, providing art students from all mediums to showcase their talents at Sussex County Community College.  This program brings students, educators  and professionals together from all over the state.

This year the program honored and celebrated student artists from 18 schools celebrating thousands of works of art. 

Typically after the show, selected pieces would be displayed throughout the county.  This year the virtual show still allowed for the opportunity to share their talents and hard work.
