Art Advocacy Fab Five for January 8-12!

It's never too early to get started on your March YAM plans, and these are guaranteed success stories ready for you to use in your school!
1  Make prints of student  artwork, frame and present to local officials.  Places like Walmart and Walgreen's make cost-efficient 5x7's or 8x10's.  Use this as a photo op for YAM during the first week in March.

2  Ask your BOE for an endorsement of Youth Art Month.

3  School-wide mural project - Collaboration/Unity theme.  Everyone creates a panel to add.  Or use the Post-It Challenge. Plan colors of Post-It notes to spell out school mascot or initials. 

4  10x10 (or 12x12) art challenge for students and staff using any media.  Install in school foyer. 

5  In cold climates - YAM Snow Sculpture Challenge!  Bundle up and brave the cold to create a temporary sculptural piece!  Compete in teams or classes!  In warmer climates, go outside and create Any Goldsworthy temporary installations; photograph and enlarge to display indoors. 

And don't forget....
6  Make Art Monday - every Monday in March, share what you are doing in you classroom/school/community for the visual arts.  Use the hashtag #MakeArtMonday and share on Facebook, at our YAM NYS page, or on Twitter!
