Youth Art Month 2017

March 1 – April 2, 2017

Virginia Beach City Public Schools Youth Art Month 2017

Celebrate the achievements of elementary, middle and high school students from Virginia Beach City Public Schools during Youth Art Month (YAM). Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art and art education for all children and to encourage public support for quality school art programs. Established in 1961, YAM provides a forum for acknowledging skills that are not possible in other subjects. Art Education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills. All of these skills are vital to the success of our future leaders – our children. This exhibition encourages public support for quality school art programs and highlights the value and importance art education plays in Virginia schools.
