In celebration of Youth Art Month, the Kansas Art Education Association would like to invite you to visit the Kansas Youth Art Month exhibit on display at the Alice Sabatini Gallery from now until April 29th .
The first Youth Art Month celebration was started in 1969 by The Council for Art Education to advocate for visual art education. The event emphasized the value of students participating the visual arts. Youth Art Month is celebrated across the nation with art contests, exhibits and special activities.
KAEA invited art educators from across the state to participate in the celebration by entering one work of art to represent every school. We’ve partnered with The Alice Sabatini Art Gallery, Sargent Art, Dillon’s, Blick Art Materials and Panera Breads and will award students scholarships, cash awards, and other prizes.
The Kansas Art Education Association like to invite you to join us in our Celebration/Reception for student artists, their families, and educators Sunday April 29th, 2018 from 1-2:30. The Celebration/Reception will be held at the Alice Sabatini Gallery.
There will be time for guests to view the artwork, a guest speaker, recognition of students, activities, sale of YAM merchandise and light refreshments. The gallery will open at 12:00.
Students who have their artwork exhibited and are in attendance during the YAM Celebration, will be recognized with a group photo. This event would be a great opportunity for you to show support for the arts in your school and community!
