CAEA Student Artwork Rubric

In the absence of cross-committee norming, rubrics yield subjective results based on each judge’s unique interpretation of the rubric criteria.

It is expected that the CAEA Student Artwork Rubric will be used when judging all YAM show and State YAM Flag artwork entries.

CAEA Student Photo Release Form

Each year, the CAEA website displays photos of YAM winners and their teachers next to the image of each winning artwork. To enable CAEA to do this, this form needs to be completed, signed, and sent to the CAEA YAM Chair ([email protected]) by parents of YAM winners, along with a photo of the winner.
