Youth Art Month
Youth Art Month
A National Arts Advocacy Program
Congratulations to this year's winner, Danny Huang!
FAEA is proud to announce the winner of the 2023 YAM Flag Design Competition, 4th-grader Danny Huang from Bay Lake Elementary in Orange County! Congratulations to Danny and their teacher, Lisette Riberon.
Representing the state of Florida, Danny's flag, Keep the Earth Clean and the Rivers Evergreen, will be displayed with other state YAM flags during the 2023 National Art Education Association (NAEA) Convention in San Antonio in April.
The Florida Art Education Association invites all art educators to participate in YAM activities! Celebrations can be as simple as a single class learning activity that focuses attention on the value of arts; or celebrations can involve collaborations that result in multi-school art exhibits. You can start with one thing that you already are doing successfully and design a way to share the value gained by your students- with parents, with school administrators, with the community, and/or with politicians.
Youth Art Month is celebrated during the month of March, but art successes from any time of the year deserve recognition. Please send a picture, description, and/or media article about advocacy events to firstname.lastname@example.org, and it will be included in Florida's YAM national report. Label your email with the title 'YAM Event' and send it in anytime.
A national arts advocacy program, Youth Art Month was initiated in 1961 by the ACMI (Art and Craft Materials Institute.) The CAE, (Council for Art Education, Inc.) administers the program along with the sponsorship of NAEA.
The goals of Youth Art Month are:
