Since 1973, the Pasadena Arts Council has recognized emerging talent in the fields of visual art, music, theatre and dance by presenting an unrestricted gift of $1,000 each to four area high school students.  In 2009 PAC inaugurated partnerships with four leading arts training programs in Pasadena to help identify students from diverse backgrounds with promise and commitment to their art forms to receive the acknowledgement and support of our award program.

The Pasadena Arts Council partners with four of Pasadena’s premier arts organizations for the Young Artist Awards.

Participants in programs at the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena Conservatory of Music, Pasadena Dance Theatre,  and Theatre 360 may be considered for Young Artist Awards in visual art, instrumental music, dance, and theatre, respectively.
