Description/Abstract: The National Art Education Association recognizes March as Youth Art Month, a time to "emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs." Youth Art Month was created in 1961 by ACMI, a non-profit association of art and craft materials manufacturers, in cooperation with the NAEA.
We draw attention to original resources and highlight select databases of relevance to the field of art education and youth:
Historical Art Collections is a virtual gallery of all artworks held at the Gottesman Libraries. Included are resources of art for and/or by children: the Edwin Ziegfeld Collection, Passow Collection of Israeli Children's Peace Art, Ukranian Children's Art Collection, Morton Schindel Animation Cells, and Rothman Lantern Slide Collection.
Pocketknowledge, the digital of Teachers College, has extensive materials, including faculty papers, historical dissertations, curriculum guides, historical images, and much more. Be sure to see A History of the Department of Fine and Industrial Arts at Teachers College, Foster Wygant's dissertation, which includes an index of all art faculty up until 1959.
