This February, War in the Pacific National Historical Park along with partner Pacific Historic Parks is proud to host its first ever art program, titled Art in the Park. This project is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities Agency, a Division of the Department of Chamorro Affairs, Government of Guam, and the Office of the Governor. 

Art in the Park offers high school students the chance to experience the great outdoors, learn about Guam's history, and make connections with valuable island resources through creating art during their time at the park.

TheSaturday sessions take place on February 7, 14, and 21 from10 am to 3:30 pm. Youth will spend the day with park rangers to explore their national park and learn from local artists to develop their artistic ability. 

High school students from 9ththrough 12thgrades are eligible to join but must register in order to participate. Download a registration packet at go.nps.gov/ArtInThePark or pick up a packet at the T. Stell Newman Visitor Center in Sumay.   Last day to submit a completed registration form and a $20 refundable deposit is January 26. Space is limited so don't delay.
