Youth Art Month

 

Youth Art Month is a national celebration endorsed by Council for Art Education, the National Art Education Association, and the Massachusetts Art Education Association. Artwork from 326 MA students in grades K-12 will be on display at the Worcester Art Museum from March 1st – March 31st.

This annual celebration, which typically takes place in March, emphasizes the value of art education for all children and encourages support for quality art programs in public and private schools. Admission for the YAM exhibit hall is always free.

The artwork of Algonquin students Leah Grinblatas, Josephine Wyble, Anna MacDonald (brain), and Jayne Antino (landscape) are all featured in the Youth Art Month Exhibit.
