Each year the Ohio Art Education Association (OAEA) sponsors two statewide K-8 art exhibits in Columbus to celebrate Youth Art Month. The Young People’s Art Exhibit (YPAE) is located in the Rhodes State Office Tower and the Youth Art Month (YAM) exhibit is located at the State Teachers’ Retirement building in Columbus. These shows are on display from Feb. 27-March 26 with the reception for the young artists and their families on Saturday, March 11.
As the state’s largest professional art education service organization, the OAEA works to support art educators and promote visual art education by recognizing quality student art throughout the state through its nine regions. These exhibits are the result of many volunteer hours by art teachers in the state of Ohio.
