The 4-H Arts Showcase is sponsored by the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents (NAE4-HA) Communication & Expressive Arts Task Force. The goal is to provide an on-line forum for youth to share their art. Additionally, the project offers educational resources for youth and educators. As a positive youth development organization, 4-H strives to provide research-based curricula and resources for youth programming. The Communication & Expressive Arts Task Force works to expand this mission through various methods, including Grab-n-Go Lessons and through lessons developed in partnership with other communication and arts organizations.
Members of the Communication & Expressive Arts Task Force are 4-H educators from across the country that work together to promote and enhance program opportunities for youth, volunteers, leaders, and educators in the arts. These members meet regularly through conference calls and at the annual NAE4-HA conference. To learn more, please see the C&EA Task Force Plan of Work & Members Directory.
