All I can say is WOW! I could not believe the numbers of people attending the Bergen County YAM show! The YAM exhibit was held at IKEA Paramus and hundreds of people were in attendance viewing the fabulous artwork created by the Bergen County students. It was so packed you could barely walk through the large exhibit space!
Student artists and families enjoyed the delicious refreshments, colored some famous artworks, posed for photographs, and talked to their art teachers. A camera crew from a local TV station, Channel 77, walked around and interviewed the artists by the artwork. Each art teacher stood by his or her school display board, greeted each family, and presented art certificates to the students. Paige DeFelice, the Bergen County YAM Chair even handed out beautiful corsages for each teacher!

It was definitely another successful YAM event in NJ! KUDOS!
