NYSATA IS A PROUD 10-YEAR OFFICIAL SPONSOR OF YOUTH ART MONTH

Thanks to the efforts, time and energy of our dedicated NYS art teachers we continue to maintain our art programs during challenging times in public education. You demonstrate to the community at large the long term value of strong art programs.  Thank you for giving us your Youth Art Month News  for inclusion in our New York State Report. There were so many great things going on for YAM this year.  Let's make 2018 New York State YAM celebration the biggest yet!! 

What 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.

Started in 1961 by the ACMI (Art and Craft Materials Institute) in cooperation with the NAEA, the program is administered by the Council for Art Education (CAE) and focuses on the following eight goals:

1. To direct attention to the value of art education which develops divergent and critical thinking skills; multicultural awareness; and technical, communication and expressive skills.

2. To increase community, business and governmental support for art education.

3. To recognize that art is a necessity for the full development of better quality of life for all people.

4. To expand art programs in schools and stimulate new ones.

5. To increase community understanding and interest in art and art education through involvement in art exhibits, workshops, and other creative ventures.

6. To provide additional opportunities for individuals of all ages to participate in creative art learning.

7. To encourage commitment to the arts by students, community organizations, and individuals everywhere.

8. To recognize art education as a viable component in the total education curricula that develops citizens of a global society.

2019 #MakeArt Monday will be bigger and better than last year!
March is Youth Art Month, celebrated across our
nation, and
althere in the Empire State, we are planning to launch our celebration with a challenge--to have as many as possible engaged in art making on every Monday in March!

You can include special events in your class, school wide projects involving faculty and staff, community events. The possibilities are endless.

Our intent is to create an awareness of the value and impact the visual arts have, not only in our PK-12 schools, but in the community and state at large. What better way to foster grass roots advocacy than to build participation right in your school district or hometown?

Sponsored by NYS Youth Art Month, and with your help, we will hit our target goal of 500 registered events by March 1!
