Youth Art Month

Youth Art Month

March 1 - 25, 2017

​Opening Reception: rescheduled to Friday, March 10 @ 4pm

Support the visual arts and our talented local youth during the nationally celebrated Youth Art Month. Emerging artists from Fannin County area schools will display their creations inside the Richard Low Evans Gallery. Families, friends, teachers, art lovers, and the young artists themselves, will celebrate the talent, patience and hard work that goes into art and quality art education. Opening Reception will be March 1, 4–6pm.

Youth Art Month is a national celebration of the visual arts in education. YAM is held annually in March and is designed to emphasize the importance of quality art education for all children.

What is Youth Art Month (YAM)?

YAM was created in 1961 as a service to art educators and the public with the following objectives:

•Recognize art as a necessity for the complete development of a high quality of life for all people 

•Direct attention to art education as an effective vehicle to teach critical thinking, communication skills, self-expression and multi-cultural awareness

•Increase community, business and government support for art education 

Who participates?

Participation in the exhibit is open to participating school students in grades K-12 in Fannin and surrounding counties and homeschooled children from within Fannin County.
