#YAM in #WI – #YouthArtMonth #StateCelebration in #Madison

Frank Korb with some of the FANTASTIC Artists (and followers of his YouTube Channel)

Welcome to the 2017 SE WI Youth Art Month portion of the State Closing Reception. The final awards ceremony was held at the Capitol Building in Madison WI on March 31. This was a fantastic way to celebrate the final day of a fantastic month long celebration of the Youth in the Visual Arts. Thank you to all the artists, parents and guardians, family, teachers, school administrators and boards for celebrating and supporting the visual arts. Congratulations to all the young artists who participated.

… and the SE WI Regional YAM Show at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts.
