Youth Art Month
The NJ State YAM Exhibit is a once in a lifetime opportunity for your art students. Each county in the state is asked to submit 6 pieces of artwork to represent the county. This artwork is selected by a panel of art teachers in each county and must be created by students of current AENJ members.
The 2013 State YAM Exhibit was held on March 1st at the Statehouse in Trenton. Over 100 pieces of NJ student artwork was on display from every county in the state!
