Celebrating Youth Art Month 2013
Arbuckle Gallery at the Pasetta House, History Park
The curated Youth Art Month exhibition at the Pasetta House includes awards for art in four grade-level categories: Kindergarten through second grade, third through fifth grades, sixth through eighth grades and and high school grades nine through twelve. Awards were given in each category on Saturday, March 2.
Sargent Art will award prizes to teachers of the first place winners in each category. The student winner from each Area exhibition advances to the state level and one of these students, along with a parent and their teacher, will be awarded a trip to New York through the support of Sargent Art.
Youth Art Month is a nationally recognized observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children, and to encourage support for quality school art programs. Supported by the National Art Education Association and in California by the California Art Education Association, the Northern Area chapter will hold the exhibition featuring some of the best art by Bay Area students, Kindergarten through Grade 12.
