Youth Art Month 2022

It's time to start making plans for Youth Art Month! 

Every year March is set aside nationally to celebrate Youth Art.  The Kansas Art Education Association coordinates a celebration at the state level, which features an art exhibit and a reception for student artists, parents, and teachers.  KAEA also partners with BLICK Art in sponsoring an art competition during Youth Art Month.  Entries will be on display at the YAM Exhibit and Award recipients will receive recognition at the YAM Celebration on March 26th during the YAM Celebration/Reception.
