Celebrate Youth Art Month 2012!

 It’s not too late to celebrate Youth Art Month (YAM!). The March 2012 theme for this year is “THE POWER OF ART”!

Art and creativity is so important to share with kids of all ages. Here are a few fun activities for little cost to do over the next week:

• Grab some sidewalk chalk and decorate the sidewalks or paved (safe) areas in your neighborhood with your art. You will brighten the day for everyone who walks down the street!

• Share some of your art or your kids’ art on Facebook or other social media. Kids’ art makes everyone smile!

• Take a trip to your local library and grab some books about artists.  Take a virtual tour online of famous museums with Google Art Project. Get inspired!

• Make a celebrate art cake! Kids can get creative with frostings, gels, and sprinkles. Cookies or cupcakes are equally fun! Here are some cookies I made for my art club at school, using pre-packaged cookie icing in easy-to-use tubes.

You can celebrate art with kids all year long, but YAM is a great reason for a party in March! Have fun!
