Off to Texas!

March 6, 2013

Catherine, Bronwyn, Argy and others

Screen shot 2013-03-05 at 7.18.29 PMFort Worth, Texas is the location of the National Art Education conference this year and starts on Thursday morning. There are several Maine art teachers traveling west to attend the conference that offers over 1000 workshops during a four day period.

On Friday I will be joining Maine Arts Assessment Initiative leadership team members Bronwyn Sale and Catherine Ring to present a session Friday morning on the MAAI. The session is called Maine Arts Teachers Lead the Way: Toward Exemplary Teaching and Learning in the Arts. The description: Explore a grass-roots, collaborative professional development model that has led to exciting growth in teaching and learning, fosters reflection, and bridges the gap between theory and practice in arts classrooms.

We’re all looking forward to sharing the outstanding work that Maine arts teachers have been involved with during the last 2 years.

You can follow the events and happenings a the conference on Twitter at NAEAartmatters. If I can get online while in Fort Worth I will post information on the meartsed blog. If not, I will certainly provide an update when we return.
