Youth Art Month Reception for Grades 9-12

Art - Reception

Thursday, March 17, 2011
5:30 PM-8:00 PM

Higgins Education Wing

Join us to celebrate the achievement of our young artists! This reception is for families and children in grades 9-12.

As many towns and school systems contemplate the possibility of cutting their art programs due to budget shortfalls, the Worcester Art Museum joins the Massachusetts Art Education Association and art teachers throughout the state in an exhibition and celebration that focuses on the importance of art in a child's education. Youth Art Month (YAM) encourages public support for quality school art programs. Young artists in grades K-12 from schools throughout central Massachusetts create the artwork for this annual month-long exhibition in the Museum's Higgins Education Wing. You'll be inspired by the creativity and talent of the young artists right here in Massachusetts--come see YAM at WAM 2011 and experience first-hand the importance of art in the curriculum.

Cost: Free with Museum admission

Suggested Audiences:High School, College, Adult, Elders
