You can enjoy a full day of artmaking and discussion with your district art team. Districts have access to special team pricing, meaning you won’t have to pay out of pocket.
Check out our presenters! Remember to check back regularly for additions to the lineup.
Jerald Robinson is the art teacher at Tapp Middle School in Cobb County, GA. He is in his 16th year of teaching, his seventh year at Tapp, and his third year in the art position. Formerly, he was a special education teacher. Robinson hopes to inspire others and spread love through his art.
We are all facing a challenging teaching situation this year, but those challenges can be exacerbated if students don’t have the supplies they need. In this presentation, Jerald will reveal how he engages students with minimal supplies.
Jenn Russell welcomes students into her art room at Hebron High School with an impressive array of visual stimulation and color. She loves popsicle stick jokes, chocolate, tchotchkes, and color (did we mention that?). When she has time, you can find her reading a good book, dabbling with pencils, or photographing the great outdoors of Texas.
Whether seeing your students online or in-person, it is important that you create a welcoming environment for them to thrive. In this presentation, Jenn will share her tried-and-true methods for welcoming students into the classroom and setting them up for success.
For over a decade, Lindsey Moss has worked her dream job of being an elementary art teacher in Yorkville, Illinois. She enjoys art history and finding creative artistic solutions to educational challenges. Moss believes that art class is the place where students can learn to be creative problem-solvers in a technology-saturated world.
After numerous changes this school year, countless teachers are finding themselves teaching from a cart. That change brings a whole new set of challenges. In this presentation, Lindsey will share practical methods for teaching from a cart and other epiphanies she’s had about how to be successful, no matter your teaching situation.
Janani is an art educator for both a high school and a youth community arts center in Chicago. Her teaching provides students with the resources they need to think and create critically to respond to their environment through drawing, painting, sculpture, and graphic design.
One of the biggest challenges for art students is visually expressing the ideas in their heads. In this presentation, Janani will discuss how she guides students through the entire creative process, helping them understand how to further develop their creativity and translate it into successful work.
