Every summer the Folk School opens its doors to young folks ages 7-17 for Little/Middle Folk School. Primarily intended for local youth, this program also brings students from all over the United States and provides an opportunity to discover Appalachian culture and take part in hands-on programs in dozens of arts and crafts.
Participants are divided into two groups. “Littles” are rising second-graders to rising sixth-graders, and “Middles” are rising seventh-graders to rising twelfth-graders. Little/Middle features nearly 30 youth classes.
Our next Little/Middle is scheduled for June 21-27, 2020. Applications for Little Middle 2020 will be available in March of 2020 on folkschool.org.
For only $173, you can help foster a child’s learning and creativity. By providing a scholarship for our week-long Little/Middle Folk School, you can help kids learn about Appalachian culture and explore fun and educational art and craft classes.
