1Do a Stop Drop and Draw - everyone in the school - for 15 minutes. Have the entire school (and staff) display their work!
2So You Think You Can Draw Challenge - do this challenge by grade level/class, or hold a faculty and staff challenge
3Invite local artists to YAM openings; make them honorary chairpersons. (Line these folks up now!)
4If your community has an electronic billboard for community events, see if they can scan in an piece of student work to promote YAM as it approaches, or to promote one of the school-wide arts events listed here.
5Create a cutout in a famous work of art: for example, The Scream, Mona Lisa, or America Gothic: Have photos taken of kids in the cutout for $1, and donate the proceeds to a local charity. Be sure the cutout has the YAM logo on it! Do this at school events. Better yet, bring it out into the community!
