YOUTH ART MONTH 2018: Building Community Through Art


Youth Art Month is the primary advocacy tool for art education. It is the national celebration of student art and art education. It gives art educators a venue for sharing the quality art programs to their communities. Youth Art Month invites community members to endorse and proclaim the importance of art education in our schools.

Art educators are encouraged to exhibit student artwork in their communities, participate in LAEA’s YOUTH ART MONTH FLAG DESIGN CONTEST and visit their legislators at Artists in the Capitol Day.


Document your YAM activities throughout the year via the YOUTH ART TRACKING SHEET and submit online at the end of this school year through the YOUTH ART MONTH REPORT link, found on the Forms and Documents page of this website, starting in mid-May.


Download the 2018 YOUTH ART MONTH FLAG CONTEST GUIDELINES and follow the directions on the YOUTH ART MONTH FLAG CONTEST ENTRY FORM to have your school or class become part of something great!
