Kansas Youth Art MonthCelebrate at the State Capitol Art Exhibit! Kansas Art Education Association YAM Exhibit March 2, 2013Every year March is set aside nationally to celebrate YOUTH ART.

Sargent will be providing student and teacher prizes in the form of art supplies for each of the following categories- Elementary, Middle and High School.

Rules for Submitting Artwork 3

1. EVERY art teacher (members and non-members) in the state may be represented by ONE piece of student artwork from every school they teach at.(for example if you have two elementary schools, you may enter one piece of artwork from each school) 2. Artwork must be completed by students enrolled in grades K-12 in the 2012/13 school year. 3. For display reasons, artwork must be 2-dimensional - any medium. HOWEVER, if you only teach 3dimensional classes, take a good photo of the 3-D work for display and matted the photo for Youth Art Month. If you are a KAEA member and are entering your students work to be included in the Sargent Art Competition, you may enter the actual 3-Dimensional piece for both display and judging. Please pack the item well. * This rule is subject to change if a different display venue is found. 4. Maximum size 24 x 30 including mat (NO FRAME NO GLASS), we are suggesting that you mat your work with a white or black matt board that is in good shape.
