Morris County Youth Art on Display at CCM

RANDOLPH, NJ - Artwork from public schools throughout Morris County will be on display in the Sherman H. Masten Library at County College of Morris (CCM) from Feb. 20 through March 11 as part of Youth Art Month (YAM).

The artwork will be displayed on the first floor of the library in the All-Purpose Room. CCM is at 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph, NJ 07869.

“We are so excited to showcase the talent of students throughout Morris County, as well as the schools’ art programs,” said Maura Boucher, chair of the Morris County Youth Art Month program. “Our 2017 show will be our largest one to date, with 30 public and private schools represented and 300 students participating. Our show primarily features two-dimensional work, but does showcase some three-dimensional work, as well.”

The Youth Art Month will also hold a reception on March 11 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., which will feature a Musical Ensemble from Randolph Schools. Gift bags for the event have been generously donated by major supply companies, including Sax Arts & Crafts, Dick Blick Art Materials, and Nasco Arts & Crafts.

Youth Art Month is nationally sponsored by The Council of Art Education and was started in 1961. The event celebrates visual arts for grades K-12 and 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.

“The Morris County chapter of YAM is so pleased to be able to have CCM host this year’s art show. The facilities are absolutely spectacular. The show is located right past the newly renovated Art and Design Gallery,” shared Boucher. “We are fortunate to promote the work of our students while enjoying the benefits of a county college that offers their students a solid foundation in the visual arts and design.”

The program at CCM Awards an Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree and is designed to transfer to four-year colleges as the first two years of a liberal arts baccalaureate. Design graduates major in industrial design, interior design, architecture, fashion design, fashion merchandising, design education (teaching design) or other design disciplines.
