    Youth Art Month 2018 – Building Community Through Art

    Worcester Art Museum is excited to again host a
    regional Youth Art Month this year

    In addition to the MAEA statewide YAM exhibit to be held at the Transportation Building in Boston, Youth Art Month will be celebrated at the Cotuit Center for the Arts on Cape Cod, the Worcester Art Museum in Central Massachusetts, and in Berkshire County. This means students will have the opportunity to participate in up to four exhibits this year all over the state!

    These are wonderful opportunities to make the public aware of the importance of quality art programs in our schools!
