This exhibit emphasizes that participating in visual art education is invaluable to children. Youth develop problem solving, creativity, observation and communication skills through visual arts experiences. The Art & Creative Materials Institute created Children’s Art Month in 1961.
Today Youth Art Month links more than 800,000 K-12 students and more than 200 art educators all across America. Enjoy the inventive art expressions of our Kansas Youth!
Every year March is set aside nationally to celebrate Youth Art. The Kansas Art Education Association coordinates a celebration at the state level, which features an art exhibit and a reception for student artists, parents and teachers. KAEA also partners with Sargent Art to sponsor an art competition during Youth Art Month.
Students from Kansas elementary, middle and high schools were selected by their teachers to participate in this year’s Youth Art Month exhibit at the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery. Admire this youth art between March 15 and April 29.
