Frisco ISD students will have artwork displayed in Austin as part of a state-wide celebration of the Texas Art Education Association Youth Art Month (YAM).
Youth Art Month is an annual observance held each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs.
Each year, school districts across the state submit artwork made by Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade student artists for exhibition in the YAM State Capitol Artwork Exhibit.
The 2020 exhibit, organized by TAEA, will begin with a display in the Lower Rotunda of the Texas State Capitol Building on March 1-7 and continue at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum on March 8-29.
A celebration and awards reception will take place March 22 at the Bullock Museum to recognize the winning students and their teachers.
Congratulations to the following students whose artwork was selected to be a part of the 2020 TAEA Youth Art Month State Capitol Exhibit.
