NAME TAGS
Previously, name tags were typed out by John Michael Gray so they would be consistent. With his passing, we have had to make an adjustment. Below you will find a Microsoft Word template for 10 name tags. Simply fill in the information using ARIAL 11pt and email it to youthartmonth@massarted.com

For medium, please choose from:
Ceramics, Sculpture, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Photography, Digital Art, Fashion, Jewelry, or Mixed Media.
(Mixed Media should break the surface of the picture such as collage, cut paper, etc. Mixed media is not painting and drawing together. For that please choose whichever medium is dominent.)

Please remember this is a government building and we may not display work depicting nudity or graphic violence.

DROP-OFF INFORMATION AND LOCATIONS

Drop-off sites are essential as we strive to make participation in the state-wide YAM exhibit accessible to all Massachusetts communities. Thank you to all the teachers listed below who have volunteered to be a drop-off site. While drop-off sites have increased and artwork may also be mailed, some regions of the state could still use a drop-off location. If there is no drop-off near you I ask you to consider volunteering (now or in the future).

You can contact me at youthartmonth@massarted.com if you are interested. Thanks for all you do.
