We will be looking for a selection of your student’s work to add to this exhibit that gets installed March 5th 2018.There will be a reception for Artists, Families, Art Teachers and Legislators on Friday March 30, afterwards artwork can travel home or back to school.

Our Theme “Linked In” is designed to be inclusive of many types of artwork and will emphasize the links art has to many other human endeavors in Math, Science, History and Storytelling.

An Exciting Design Opportunity for Your Students

Youth Art Month 2018
VATA hosts a design contest for the 2018 YAM Flag. There are prizes for students and teachers who participate and are honored in several divisions. The designer of the Vermont YAM Flag receives a $1000 prize generously sponsored by Sargent Art. Their teachers will also receive supplies for their classroom.


VATA runs the selection process through Instagram in February.

If you don’t have an account for your art program this might prompt you to share your student work on this visual social media program and advocate for Arts Education. Flag designs will include text promoting our YAM Theme and can be added in many ways. Details and deadlines will be at in early December
