Youth Art Month is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children. Art education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills. These skills are vital to the success of our future leaders, our children.
This year our theme is What do you want to be when you grow up? Draw a picture of yourself at your dream job, or how you see yourself as an adult. Be creative in how you see yourself in the future. Check out last year’s winners:
