March is Youth Art Month!
Youth Art Month is a celebration of the visual arts!
- Problem solving
Art shows, special exhibits, fundraisers, and school and community activities take place annually, traditionally during March, to celebrate visual art education for grades K – 12.
Each year AMoA celebrates by hosting the Youth Art Month Student Art Competition and YAMDay to showcase the talented students in Rapides Parish.
All K-12 students in Rapides Parish are eligible to enter including traditional, virtual, homeschool, and special needs students. Not all entered works are accepted but are all juried and judged without distinguishing information other than grade level.
40-50 works will be selected to participate in the competition and to be on display at the Alexandria Museum of Art.
Works may be submitted by teachers, parents or high school students on their own behalf and are juried/judged in each grade level category.
Each grade level category is awarded a First, Second and Third Place. One Viewer's Choice Award will be voted on by visitors at the Member Preview Reception and throughout YAMDay activities on Saturday, March 12, 2022.
