March 2021 | Art Connects Us

In celebration of visual arts and empowering the next generation of contemporaries, we will be hosting two ongoing YAM projects. 

 

Started in 1961 through The Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI), Youth Art Month exists to:

  1. Recognize art education as a viable factor in the total education curricular that develops citizens of a global society.
  2. Recognize art is a necessity for the full development of better quality of life for all.
  3. Direct attention to the value of art education for divergent and critical thinking.
  4. Expand art programs in schools and stimulate new art programs.
  5. Encourage commitment to the arts by students, community organizations, and individuals everywhere.
  6. Provide additional opportunities for individuals of all ages to participate in creative art learning.
  7. Increase community, business and governmental support for art education.
  8. Increase community understanding and interest in art and art education through involvement in art exhibits, workshops, and other creative ventures.
  9. Reflect and demonstrate the goals of the National Art Education Association that work toward the improvement of art education at all levels.
