Tiffany Beltz and WI YAM Honored!
Congratulations to Tiffany Beltz and Wisconsin Youth Art Month for being
recognized with the Claire Flanagan Award by the Council for Art Education. To be eligible for recognition, state chairpersons submitted documentation of their Youth Art Month Programs. Documentation was evaluated across a variety of key categories, based on predetermined criteria.
Awards will be presented to the recipients at the 2017 National Art Education Association (NAEA) Convention, March 2-4 in New York. Sponsored nationally by The Council for Art Education, Youth Art Month is an annual observance, typically in March, designed to emphasize the value of art education for all youth and to encourage support for quality school art programs. Youth Art Month provides a forum for acknowledging the imagination, innovation, and creative skills that a visual arts experience can nurture. Across the country, students, teachers and communities direct attention to the value of a visual arts education that develops divergent and critical thinking, multicultural awareness, and technical, communication, and expressive skills.
To find out more about Youth Art Month or to participate in Youth Art Month activities, contact your state chairperson, state art education association, or The Council for Art Education at www.councilforarteducation.org.
