March is Youth Art Month - Celebrate!

March is Youth Art Month 2010
Planet eARTh

Endorsed by the National Art Education Association, Youth Art Month (YAM) is a national annual observance - each March, to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs. To recognize Youth Art Month, the Somerset Art Association (SAA) partners with the Art Educators of New Jersey to host a two-part exhibit of Somerset County student work on both floors of the Johnson Gallery.

The Somerset County Youth Art Month Exhibit is held at the
Somerset Art Associaton in Bedminister, NJ. Part I of this exhibit will run from March 1 - 14, 2010 and it highlights the talents of children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Part II, March 18 - March 28, 2010 highlights work created in 6th through 12th grade. Mount Prospect will have 12 pieces on display for Part I of this exhibit, 2 pieces from each grade K - 5.

Above you see a slideshow of the work to be exhibited at the 
Somerset Art Association.

The exhibit has been at SAA for the past years and a BIG thank you goes out to Robyn Tromeur, Director of SAA and all the volunteers from SAA who helped hang this exhibit.

All the work can be viewed at our Artsonia On-line Gallery @
