Dongnang Juvenile Art Festival

“The education of youths seeks to enable students to find their aptitude and characteristics on their own and design their futures based on this to make their dreams come true.”

Seoul Institute of the Arts is a professional center for art education established by scholar Chi-Jin Yoo. The school’s founding philosophy is we seek to facilitate the development of Korean culture in the world, combining global universality with Korean sentiment based on traditional Korean art.

Dongnang Juvenile Art Festival will soon mark its 47th anniversary in keeping the educational goals of our school. Many artists were fostered though the festival upon establishment of our school, and they are now big names on the Korean art scene. I sincerely intend to expand the scope of this festival for new art creation and free expression for all of you. I am convinced that all of you will play a crucial role in the field. Education for youths will not force the teaching of objective knowledge or information but help them delineate their future by finding their aptitude and characteristics.

To all youths participating in the festival! You are the names of traditional art in Korea. Please make your dreams come true and believe in yourself. I really appreciate all of your efforts to support students.

Duk-Hyung Yoo, President of Seoul Institute of the Arts
