  Youth Art Month

Dear MAEA members,

I know your students have been working hard on their YAM flag/banner designs. The time has come to submit them! Please fill out an entry form for you flag, and a permission/release form for EACH student that contributed to the flag. (You will need one entry form, but maybe more than one release forms depending on the number of contributing artists). Both documents are attached. Please email the jpegs to Jen Johannes at maeayam@gmail.com by Sunday January 10th by 5pm. The winner will be announced via email by Friday January 15th. The winner will then have to submit an artists' statement before having their artwork produced into the flag.

If you have specific questions, please email Jen Johannes at jjohannes@aacps.org .
