March is National Youth Art Month! Founded in 1961, Youth Art Month encourages art advocates and organizations to raise awareness about the important role that art education has in enriching and strengthening the minds of students.
In observance of this national celebration, we would like to offer you a bit of insight into inspiring the children in your life. Please enjoy this free article download from the premiere issue of Create With Me. We hope that it encourages you to share the gift of creativity by introducing similar projects into their daily routine.
Spread the word about National Youth Art Month! Here are some ideas:
- Volunteer to teach a curriculum-based art project to your child’s class
- Reach out to your blogging network and organize a blog hop advocating Youth Art Month
- Donate a basket of art supplies to an underprivileged school district
- Institute the Reflections program through the PTA at your child’s school
- Organize a school-wide bookmark decorating contest. Display them around the school so the kids can see their masterpieces!
