Celebrating Youth Art Month!

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 Center for Contemporary Art @ Bedminster (CCA) 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
Center for Contemporary Art @ Bedminster Part I of this exhibit will run from March 1 - 13, 2011 and it highlights the talents of children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Part II, March 18 - April 3, 2011 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 can enjoy a video of the artwork to be exhibited at the Somerset County Youth Art Month Exhibit!

This exhibit has been hosted by CCA for the past 11 years and a BIG thank you goes out to the Center for Contemporary Art and all the volunteers who helped hang this exhibit.

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