YAM: Youth Art Month
Naomi Carpenter and Katelyn Brandt, have had their artwork chosen to be on display at the State Historical Building for this year's Youth Art Month Show.
Their artwork was compared against hundreds of Iowa student artists to compete for a place in this year's Youth Art Month show. The Iowa Youth Art Month show and celebration is sponsored by Art Educators of Iowa, in partnership with the Iowa Arts Council.
A special reception celebrating the artistic success of these students will be
at the beginning of March at the State Historical Museum. Each student will each receive an invitation to this special event as well as a certificate of achievement.
Students, their parents, arts educators, legislators and the public are invited. The celebration helps direct attention to the value of art education in developing critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, community awareness and technical, communication and expressive skills.
