Youth Art Month

Welcome Somerset County Art Teachers!

Thank you for stopping by the Somerset County YAM Website. You will find EVERYTHING you need to participate in the Somerset County Youth Art Month Exhibit HERE! Planning for the Annual Somerset County Youth Art Month (YAM) Exhibit is underway! Once again, the Center for Contemporary Art @ Bedminister, is generously donating their beautiful exhibit space. This exhibit is sponsored by the Art Educators of NJ (AENJ), and participation is a benefit of being a member of AENJ.
