Local Youth Art Month Celebrations
Help Kansas celebrate the visual arts by putting up an art display in your school, at a school board meeting or somewhere in your community.  Make sure that you mention that March is Youth Art Month.  Add some advocacy materials and put up the National Visual Arts Standards.  Call your local paper or add something to your school website, newsletter, or newspaper.  Get some coverage for your students and your art program...be your own best advocate!  Share all of your accomplishments with us by documenting what you have done and send that information to:  Megan Wendleton at meganwendleton@hotmail.com
so that we can include you in our YAM report.

Please fill out this google doc to help us with our record keeping:
