Each year, the state celebrates National Youth Art Month (YAM) in March. The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) sponsors a YAM art exhibit at the State Capitol in Austin.
TAEA also has a partnership with the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. TAEA hosts the awards ceremony and reception with an extended exhibition of the Youth Art Month artwork at the museum.
Districts across the state submitted artworks created by students in prekindergarten through 12th grade. TAEA selected 100 artworks for exhibition in the YAM Capital Exhibit held at the State Capitol. This year, there were two exhibits in Austin. The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum exhibit ran March 7-26. And the State Capitol exhibit ran March 28-April 4.
The celebration, awards, and reception took place March 26 at the Bullock Museum.
