Youth Art Month
Youth Art Month
A National Arts Advocacy Program
FAEA is proud to announce the winner of the 2021 YAM Flag Design Competition, 6th-grader Miranda Pulmano from Glades Middle School in Broward County! Congratulations to Miranda and their teacher, Jacqueline Ortiz.
Representing the state of Florida, Miranda's flag will be displayed during the 2021 National Art Education Association (NAEA) Virtual Convention in March.
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 to the value of arts; or celebrations can involve collaborations which 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 email@example.com, 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:
