March is Youth Art Month

March is Youth Art Month (YAM). On Friday, March 2, Arne Duncan (U.S. Secretary of Education) wrote: The arts are an important part of a well-rounded education for all students. All of the arts – dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts – are essential to preparing our nation’s young people for a global economy fueled by innovation and creativity and for a social discourse that demands communication in images and sound as well as in text.
