formally at the 2018 NAEA Convention in Seattle! This marks the 9th year in a row that New York has been the recipient of an award honoring our art educators who participate in YAM and share their information so that we may compile a report demonstrating growth and the positive impact of grass roots advocacy for the visual arts.

 

The 2017/2018 theme is “Building Community Through Art”

NYSATA IS A PROUD 9th 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.
