Digital Media: YAM Flag Design Contest

This week we are creating 3' x 5' flag designs for Youth Art Month in March addressing the theme of Take a Journey through Art which will be due Friday 10/11. Your submission should address the following questions:

  • Is the theme “Take a Journey through Art” clear in the work?
  • Did you include the name of our state (New York) in the design?
  • Did you include the current Youth Art Month YAM logo?
  • Did you make sure that any Lettering or logo is ¼” from the border?

The winning entry will be made into a full size flag and hung at the Art Educators annual convention. The student will win YAM prizes and the class will receive free art supplies. Above is an example of the winning entry from our class 2 years ago. Below is the logo that you should incorperate into the work.

When you are finished with the work, use this rubric to self assess you piece before you hand it into Google Classroom to make sure it has all of the necessary elements.  Feel free to make any changes to improve your grade before you hand it in.
