Join us for our March Artist Reception!
MACK Youth Art Month Artist Reception
Friday, March 11th
6:00 – 8:00
Youth Art Month is a signature program of the MACK and is a nationally recognized program. The McCormick Arts Council works in coordination with McCormick Middle and High Schools, and during the After School Arts program. The MACK works directly with district instructors, helps to provide resources for art projects, instruction time, supplies and sponsors the culminating exhibition to include award packages.
This year’s theme is “Celebrating McCormick County’s Centennial”.
The Youth Art Month Program emphasizes the value of art education for all children, encourages support for quality school art programs, and promotes art material safety. Youth Art Month also provides a forum for recognizing skills developed through visual arts experiences that are not possible in other curriculum subjects.
Started in 1961 through the Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI) and in cooperation with the National Art Education Association (NAEA),
Youth Art Month exists to:
- Recognize art education as a viable factor in the total education curricula that develops citizens of a global society.
- Recognize art is a necessity for the full development of better quality of life for all.
- Direct attention to the value of art education for divergent and critical thinking.
- Expand art programs in schools and stimulate new art programs.
- Encourage commitment to the arts by students, community organizations, and individuals everywhere.
- Provide additional opportunities for individuals of all ages to participate in creative art learning.
- Increase community, business and governmental support for art education.
- Increase community understanding and interest in art and art education through involvement in art exhibits, workshops, and other creative ventures.
- Reflect and demonstrate the goals of the National Art Education Association that work toward the improvement of art education at all levels.
