March Madness for ART

March is Youth Art Month!  What a great reason to take the time to intentionally celebrate every moment we have to make art.  Here's a great description from a fantastic mentor and art leader, Debi West:

In 1961, the Council for Art Education designated March as “Children’s Art Month.”  In 1969, the even grew to include older students as well.  And thus, Youth Art Month was born. 
YAM, as it’s commonly known, is held each March.  Every child has the right to learn to create and think critically through a comprehensive art education program. When the arts are supported by the public, students are the ultimate winners!
