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. YAM was created in 1961 by ACMI, a nonprofit association of art and craft materials manufacturers, in cooperation with the National Art Education Association.
Each year at Piscataway High School the art teachers work together to create a different YAM activity that students can participate in. We have had many different themes and created large scale projects in the past. Art students have participated over the years look forward to this each year. What are we doing this year? Hint-take a look at the picture above and check back in two weeks to see where these mini easels end up traveling too. It's going to be awesome!
