Youth Art Month

March is Youth Art Month.  

"Youth Art Month is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs.  Established in 1961, YAM provides a forum for acknowledging skills that are not possible in other subjects.  The Council for Art Education, a sponsor of Youth Art Month, adopted a theme, "Art Shapes the World!"  Art education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others and critical thinking skills.  All of these skills are vital to the success of our future leaders- our children." (SchoolArts Magazine-March Issue, pg. 38)

If you are interested in helping to support YAM you can check out the link below and become a sponsor.  Please visit
