President’s Message by Elizabeth Mahler Licence

W

elcome all art educators to the 2014 CAEA Fall Conference! Thank you so much for attending, I hope that your experience is everything you have come to expect from the CAEA and much more. The CAEA Representative Board and Conference Chairs have been working hard all year to put on a fabulous conference and I want to thank them for all of their hard work. A special thanks goes out to all of the workshop presenters who are the lifeblood of Fall Conference. The conference would be rather dull without the variety of excellent presentations/workshops every year. Our conference is completely run by volunteers so when you see Conference staff (we are the people in the red aprons) or when leaving your workshops,

please be sure to thank them for the time that they have set aside to make our conference a success. The CAEA is very excited about the new relationship that we have built with the town of Breckenridge and their Arts District. All of this year’s master classes are being held in this new facility and we look forward to using this great creative space. I am always blown away by the quality and diversity of the conference workshops, master classes, keynote speakers and events that we offer. Every year I look forward to seeing so many art educators gather in Breckenridge to learn, share, create and of course, have fun! Enjoy yourselves; I can’t wait to spend this time with you. :)

Colorado Art Education Association 2014 Award Recipients Colorado Art Educator of the Year Justine Sawyer In the twenty years since Justine Sawyer began her teaching career, her passion, dedication and impeccable work ethic toward her profession and her students has established her as a well respected, inspirational role model and advocate for art education in the state of Colorado and beyond. Justine’s educational career began in her home state of Iowa. Since then, her journeys have taken her to Colorado, followed by Cyprus, California and finally back to Colorado. Although Justine has taught at all levels throughout the years, served as department chair, taught IB and implemented AP classes while at Cherokee Trail, she now brings her talents, experience and passion to East High School. Justine’s years of dedicated service to our profession have given her a uniquely wide breadth of experience, making her a valued member of the East High school visual arts team. Justine realizes that to become a better teacher, one needs constant reflection, learning and practicing in the profession as both an art educator and as an artist. She overcomes challenging situations with tact and professionalism by putting her students first and working hard to make sure their accomplishments are recognized. The most important thing to her is that her students are successful and recognized for their achievements.

Nominator Jody Chapel reflects, “To talk about Justine Sawyer is to talk about what she does for others. Working with her as her student teacher, I learned many valuable lessons from her. The biggest one was that it’s all about the STUDENTS. No matter what you have to deal with outside of the classroom, it all comes back to the students.”

Justine’s dedication to her profession has not been limited to the walls of her school. Justine has always been highly involved with CAEA. Serving as the Metro rep, she held monthly social gatherings during First Friday’s on Santa Fe Drive. She wanted art teachers to have the opportunity for social interaction with each other and to enjoy art experiences. In many other ways she worked hard to make sure the art educators in the metro area were involved in CAEA activities. Currently, she has resurrected Youth Art Month (YAM) in Colorado including organizing a statewide art contest in which winning artwork is displayed in the State Capital building; she requested and received a gubernatorial proclamation making March Youth Art Month official in Colorado; and built a new presence for this important endeavor by creating a YAM website and promoting it at the CAEA conference and at every art teacher gathering she has been involved with. When the Scholastic Art & Writing competition was in dire need of volunteers to run parts of the program that teachers have come to expect, Justine stepped up to the plate. In addition, to a new job in a new district, and taking on Youth Art Month, she also volunteered to coordinate the Denver Art Museum Scholastic exhibit and the Teacher/student luncheon. Lisa Lee Adams concludes, “Justine is a visible and integral part of the success of Visual Arts on a local and state level and yet despite her artistic, educational and leadership accolades Justine’s remains humble. I believe it is time to bring Justine Sawyer to the front and honor her for her devotion to all aspects of our craft.”

High School Art Educator of the Year Virginia Schick Plastered across the walls of Virginia Schick’s Boulder High School classroom and on the school's visual arts website is this quotation from musician/poet Bob Dylan: “The highest purpose of art is to inspire." Virginia has dedicated the art of her teaching to inspiring her students to succeed and be the best that they can be. Virginia’s passion, impeccable work ethic, and dedication to our profession have not gone unnoticed. Among her many accolades are the Marie Walsh Sharpe Teacher as Artist Award, the Jared Polis Award, and the Impact on Education for Excellence Winner in teaching visual art. In 2008, Virginia became nationally recognized as a Board Certified Teacher. Now serving as the Boulder Valley School District facilitator of National Board Certification, she assisted this past year in the National Certification of 23 other Boulder Valley teachers. Additionally, Virginia serves as her district’s Induction Coach for new art educators and is the Teacher Leader 612 for district art teachers. Her students' awards are also impressive. Under her tutelage, her students have received multiple local, national, and international recognitions, including awards from the State Board of Education and selection for inclusion in the National Congressional Art Show in Washington, D.C. Many of her students are Gold and Silver Key winners in the Colorado and National Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.

C A E A

C o n f e r e n c e

However, it is not the accolades that drive Virginia to teach, but her desire to inspire. According to Pamela Starck, Colorado Scholastics Art and Writing Coordinator, Virginia has the rare talent to create “magic” within the walls of her classroom, equipping her students with the skills, creativity, and personal voice needed to succeed as artists. Equally impressive to Pam is the way in which Virginia's students respond to her high standards. Virginia demands 120% of herself. She requests – and gets – that same level of commitment from her students.

10

Schick’s passion is to inspire both serious and casual art students. Virginia established a Portfolio 101 class for all students within the Boulder Valley School District who were considering a future in the arts through higher education. After acquiring Advanced Placement (AP) training on her own initiative, she established AP Studio Art and Art History classes at Boulder High. Additionally, every week after school, Virginia offers “open studio” hours to students who are either unable to fit visual art classes into their schedules or simply are desirous of more studio time after the regular school day has ended. In her desire to inspire each and every student, Virginia uses art to reach out to struggling and at-risk students and to help them turn around their grades. Upon realizing the lack of diversity among registered visual art students at Boulder High, Virginia immediately sought a solution by translating all course offerings and connecting personally with diverse populations, sometimes even conducting home visits. The result of her efforts? A 20% increase in the enrollment of diverse student populations. According to Boulder High Colleague, Michelle Carpenter, “Virginia regularly stretches the traditional boundaries of teaching, because she does not see the school walls as limiting factors. She truly makes our school and district a better place to live, work and develop into lifelong artists.” Pam Starck concludes, “There are many proficient and dedicated teachers in education. There are also teachers who, because of their commitment to education and students are considered outstanding. Virginia is outstanding, and it is without hesitation I recommend her for High School Teacher of the year.”

Middle School Art Educator of the Year Tyler Utesch As a young boy, future art educator Tyler Utesch struggled academically. The only place he felt any level of success at school was in the art room. Since deciding to pursue a career in education, his vow has always been to “pay it forward.” He has established an art curriculum that provides a wide variety of artistic opportunities that allow for the success of all his students through the use of sound pedagogical instruction and the establishment of a learning environment in which students feel safe, respected, and honored. In his more than fifteen-year tenure at Shadow Ridge Middle School in Adams County District 12, Tyler has more than accomplished his goal. Tyler is adept at developing standards-based lessons that meet the needs of every artist who enters his class. When Tyler teaches a student to create art, he focuses not only on technique but also on what the student is passionate about, encouraging personal expression. He spends individual time with students, teaching them how to translate their ideas into images. When he looks at a child’s work, it is not with a critical eye. Rather, he expounds on the virtues of time and effort, as well as the individual progress made. In doing so, the students feel safe enough to experience emotions that are often unfamiliar to them: pride and self-esteem. Many people underestimate how delicate the psyche of middle school students can be, especially in areas with great poverty and adversity. Tyler does not. He nurtures young artists, providing gentle suggestions for improvement through differentiating and modeling. In doing so, Tyler’s students discover their own artistic process through which they may flourish. Those who attend the annual district art show can see Tyler’s success – they are amazed by the quality and caliber of the work coming from Shadow Ridge’s students. Tyler’s students consistently win the highest accolades and his students have won the most awards in the Adams County District 12 annual student art show in 10 out of the last 11 years.

C A E A

The district's administrative offices are adorned with works purchased from Shadow Ridge students. For many atrisk students, having a piece of their artwork purchased can be the hallmark of their academic careers. This year, for example, one girl’s painting was purchased and teachers saw a rare sight – a grin peeking out from behind her hair that shone throughout the whole day.

2 0 1 4 R e c i p i e n t s

Shadow Ridge colleague Joseph Sanford concludes, “Tyler has a rare gift to reach and inspire others. He has had great success with high-risk students. It is my opinion and that of many of our staff that some of his students are alive and still in school today only because he cared enough to help guide them. He is an exceptional art teacher whose commitment to art, education and his students could not be higher. I don’t believe you could choose a better individual than Tyler to be selected Colorado Middle School Art Educator of the Year.”

A w a r d

Tyler has also established himself as a leader among fellow art educators in District 12, always serving as a voice of advocacy when the call arises. For the annual art show, he has chaired the installation and striking of artworks for the middle school section. Tyler generously dedicates hours to organizing and hanging the show in such a manner that the students’ work is displayed most advantageously. Under Tyler’s tenure as chair, the show has been enhanced because all the middle-schools’ artworks are hung harmoniously – placed together according to media, instead of hung separately according to school.

Elementary School Art Educator of the Year Rain Bodine Rain Bodine’s positive attitude, boundless energy, and infectious creativity make her an extraordinary art teacher. Rain is passionate about teaching art and her commitment to her students, colleagues, and community is obvious. Rain currently teaches art to first to fifth grade students at Gunnison Elementary School in the Gunnison Watershed School District. But her range of experience spans from elementary to the university level. During the summer months , she actively shares her expertise by teaching art education courses at Western State Colorado University. Principal Sally Hensley describes Mrs. Bodine’s classroom as “vibrant and active.” She notes, “There is an audible buzz of creativity and engagement. I have a hard time walking by without popping my head in. What I see are students working intently, animatedly discussing ideas, looking through books and magazines for inspiration, taking out and putting away supplies, commenting on each other’s work, or gathered around Rain in rapt attention as she demonstrates a new technique. Our hallways are showcases of rich and varied student pieces that make people stop and admire.” The level of commitment and energy Rain brings to her profession does not stop with her students and colleagues at Gunnison Elementary. She is dedicated to forging connections between her students and their community through artistic expression, collaborating with local businesses to display student artwork, and generously donating countless hours of artistic service to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Gunnison’s annual Cattlemen’s Days, and the USA Pro Challenge cycling race. Through her students’ inclusion in these projects, they are encouraged to think globally and to take pride in their philanthropy. Principal Hensley continues, “I have been very impressed with Rain’s willingness to think deeply about how she evaluates students and tracks their progress toward grade level expectations of the Colorado Academic Standards. She has dissected, unpacked and repacked standards, developed rubrics evaluation and feedback forms. She uses portfolios to document student work and includes her students in every aspect of her evaluation process. She started ‘Portfolio Nights’ where students present their work to their parents and reflect on their progression as an artist. As a result, her students see themselves as artists with unique and valuable contributions.” Her passion and expertise for creating authentic, individualized assessments drives Rain to willingly collaborate with other Watershed School District art teachers. She freely shares her expertise in creating authentic, standards-based assessments during professional development opportunities in order to ensure that the Colorado Visual Art Standards are being delivered to all Watershed students in a systematic, aligned manner. Superintendent of Schools Doug Tredway concludes, “We are indeed lucky to have Rain Bodine as a teacher in the Gunnison Watershed School District. Rain is an exceptional teacher and has had a significant impact on the students in Gunnison. I have had the opportunity to observe her teaching, and her enthusiasm and passion for Art are evident. She is extremely deserving of this award.”

Higher Education Art Educator of the Year Martin Mendelsberg Martin Mendelsberg has served the higher education art education community in Colorado over the last three decades with an incredible amount of knowledge, energy, and spirit. Martin is an exceptional educator. Articulate, scrutinizing, and motivating, Martin is a rare gem who brings his years of international design experience to the classroom with one goal – to shape students into outstanding designers. Additionally, Martin’s command of subject goes well beyond the typical, employing a pedagogy that delves thoughtfully into the theory, critique, and cultural context of graphic design. In addition, Martin is known to speak from the heart with authority and relevance to which the students fully respond, both cognitively and creatively. In addition to Mr. Mendelsberg's outstanding teaching in the college classroom, he is a world-class artist and designer. He has exhibited internationally in Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, China, Israel and America. His work is represented in permanent collections at The Museum of New Zealand; Victoria University School of Architecture; Govett-Brewster Art Gallery; Yale University: Haas Arts Special Collections; The Florida Holocaust Museum; The Mizel Museum, Denver, Colorado; Greeley Holocaust Observance Committee; and The Center for the Study of Political Graphics in Los Angeles. Martin’s most recent large exhibition opened May 25, 2014 at the Holocaust Memorial Center Museum in Farmington Hills, Michigan.

R e c i p i e n t s

MSU colleague Lisa Abendroth concludes, “Martin Mendelsberg is a living manifestation of that which he teaches. Martin is living a life of design. He manifests his passion for design and design education in a tangible way. This commitment to a discipline and a way of seeing the world (through the design lens) has significant bearing on his students and his colleagues alike. Because he presents himself as a student of design – a curious lifetime learner – he revels in the beauty of discovery that comes about as a result of a deep inquiry into practice. These qualities are unique to Martin Mendelsberg as a remarkable design educator. It would be an honor to have Martin recognized for his contribution to the design community of Denver, Colorado. He has given us so much and inspired so many. The award is well deserved.”

A w a r d

Although Martin is no longer with RMCAD, it is obvious to Martin's current colleagues at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU) that he is having a profound impact on the way the students of MSU learn and relate to their chosen discipline. Current students continue to vocalize their unfettered appreciation for his teaching style and personalized relationship to the discipline of design.

Elizabeth reflects, “Martin Mendelsberg’s teaching, as well as his professional and personal work, has influenced people all over the world; he does not think small, he thinks globally. His impact on students’ lives and their learning can be seen in their respect for him as a designer and educator and their mutual dedication to impeccable design and life long learning.”

C A E A

Professor Mendelsberg’s affiliation with Denver’s Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD) began in 1988 and concluded in 2013. It was there that Elizabeth Mahler Licence had the pleasure of working with Martin for more than six years. Elizabeth recalls Martin’s energy, charismatic personality, and command of subject and pedagogy having a profound impact on both her life and life’s work, fondly viewing him as an iconic leader, mentor, and fiercely passionate colleague.

Rookie Art Educator of the Year Andrea Slusarski Andrea Slusarksi is as an active member of the arts community where she displays both personal and student work, advocates for arts education, and presents staff development to seasoned and upcoming teachers. Affectionately known as Miss Slu to her students, Andrea has been an arts educator for only three short years; however, she has made a large impact with her students, in her schools, and to the profession at large. Colleague Bryce Kennedy reflects, “In the two years I have known Andrea, I have seen that she has an incredible passion for teaching art and is interested in seeing all her students succeed and grow in her classroom. She has also had a major impact on the schools where she has worked and students she has taught.”

C A E A

C o n f e r e n c e

In her first position at Coal City Intermediate School in Illinois, Miss Slusarski served as art teacher, specials representative on the Teaching and Learning Committee, and sponsor of the art club. When making the transition to Colorado, Andrea came highly recommended by peers and supervisors.

14

Her second year of teaching brought her to Falcon Middle School where she taught drawing, painting, and 3-D classes to all middle-school grade levels. She helped to develop an innovative curriculum that included unit plans, common assessments, skills sheets, lessons, and project rubrics. She also served as the Building Apple Technical Coach. In addition, Miss Slusarski designed and printed the posters for and curated the Falcon Middle School Winter Art Show; worked to become Career and Technical Education certified with the state of Colorado; collaborated with the vertical visual arts teams on curriculum development; and attended and co-presented at the NAEA Spring Conference in Fort Worth, Texas. Andrea’s passion for mentoring youth drove her to take her talents to California during summer break where she worked with teenage students attending college classes at the University of California Santa Barbara. For ten weeks, she supervised, counseled, and accompanied students and acted as their role model. Now part of the Gateway High School art staff, Andrea continues to excel. She is working on curriculum development and mentoring students within the IB programs. She presented and co-presented at the CAEA Fall Conference and will, once again, be co-presenting at the NAEA Spring Conference. Gateway High School teacher Melanie Rose concludes, “Andrea is full of energy, an inspiration and encouragement to all her students. I am constantly amazed at her organization, lesson plans, enthusiasm, passion, and great relationships with her students. I do not consider her a ‘rookie’ art teacher and am constantly learning new things from her and her classroom practices. She is a true leader and deserves this award.”

Private School Art Educator of the Year Tiffany Holbrook Tiffany Holbrook teaches kindergarten through fourth grade art education at the third-oldest charter school in Colorado, the Pueblo School for the Arts and Sciences (PSAS). During her tenure at PSAS, Tiffany’s dedication and passion have been obvious in all that she undertakes and to everyone with whom she comes in contact. Tiffany’s down-to-earth personality and expertise always shine through – whether working one-onone with students or collaboratively with other educators, she allows their creativity to flow and helps them experience success. Cynthia Ramu, a PSAS fifth- to eighth-grade art teacher, reflects, “Tiffany is an amazingly inspiring K-4 Art Teacher, and she knows how to keep those kids drawing, discovering and inventing each day of the year. It has been a special pleasure to be her partner teacher.”

A w a r d R e c i p i e n t s

Nominator Jane Thomas of Cheyenne Mountain Junior High concludes, “Tiffany’s enthusiasm that first year at Conference drew me to her like a magnet. It is impossible to be around her and not get a little extra pep in your step. She does everything in her life without fear and with a little extra flair. She loves teaching and it shows. She is involved in the art community outside of school, and is an artist of exceptional ability. I proudly stand behind my nomination of Tiffany Holbrook as Private/Independent/Charter School Art Educator of the Year.”

2 0 1 4

In addition to being a treasured and respected member of the PSAS learning team, Tiffany is passionate about contributing to the betterment of art education throughout the state through her involvement in CAEA. Tiffany first entered the CAEA arena in 2005 as a student with youthful enthusiasm and inexhaustible energy. Never one to tiptoe in timidly, Tiffany presented a workshop her first year attending the conference and has continued to do so every year since. When asked if anyone would be willing to put together and maintain the CAEA Facebook page, Tiffany did not hesitate, vigilantly keeping art teachers well informed with the latest CAEA information and events. Additionally, Tiffany has co-chaired both the Hospitality and Bash task forces for CAEA’s Fall Conference.

C A E A

Diana Gifford, Academic Dean of PSAS, concurs: “Through my own experiences in education over the past forty years, I have learned what real master teachers bring to the table. Strong teaming skills, good judgment, always focusing on what’s good for students, and the ability to see the ‘big picture’ are the qualities I look for when working with teachers. Ms. Holbrook works exceptionally well with our students, the humanities team, and all staff members at our school. I have observed her enthusiasm for her subject, her love for her students, and willingness to think out of the box, as well as encouraging creative risk taking amongst her students.”

Distinguished Service Within the Profession Award Vanessa Hayes-Quintana In addition to teaching art full time at the Joliet Learning Center in Aurora, Vanessa Hayes-Quintana has served tirelessly over the past eight years as the editor of CAEA’s art journal, Collage. During that time, Vanessa has proved herself to be an invaluable contributor to CAEA, having worked tirelessly toward improvement of Collage’s credibility, format, and style. Vanessa first came to the position as editor more than eight years ago when Natalie Barnes, the beloved editor of Collage, placed an ad in Collage asking for help. Vanessa jumped into the challenge feet first, not only taking over as editor from Natalie but also assuming many of the responsibilities of the advertising chair. It was during Vanessa’s tenure as editor that Collage made the transition from hard copy to today’s digital, online journal. Upon consensus from CAEA’s council to go digital, it was Vanessa who took it upon herself to make it happen, helping to usher CAEA into the 21st century and allowing CAEA members to receive Collage in full color for the first time. As part of this process, the fall issue of Collage was transformed, combining all the features of a traditional issue with those of the Fall Conference program book. The new Collage format allowed CAEA members to share conference information in a timely manner with school administrators, which assisted art educators in encouraging administrators to fund their attendance at the Fall Conference.

2 0 1 4

Rosemary Reinhart, copy editor of Collage, reflects upon Vanessa’s tenure, stating, “Vanessa brought a passion for art and art education as well as a big-picture perspective that created positive, catalytic change for Collage and CAEA. Vanessa was always enthusiastic and respectful in our collaboration. She impressed me with her openness, her generosity, and her commitment to bringing out discerning articles that would pass on the passion for art. She provided an exceptional service to CAEA through expanding the reach of Collage while continuing its tradition as a thought-provoking, insightful publication for art educators, students, and friends of art.”

C A E A

Similarly, she oversaw a well-rounded focus on professional development. Besides publishing articles to help teachers understand and incorporate the new visual arts standards, she published articles that encouraged teachers to continue their own art making and to participate in the art education community through events such as ArtSource, the Fall Conference, and CAEA’s exhibits.

C o n f e r e n c e

While stretching the magazine in these new directions, Vanessa upheld the magazine’s quality content. Foremost among the interests she promoted as editor was building connections. She did so by publishing articles by educators in K-12 and higher education as well as by working professionals. She welcomed articles about finding inspiration for teaching art in places as diverse as museums, flea markets, and ballroom dancing.

16

CAEA Past President Robin Wolfe concludes, “Vanessa like many of us has a full life at home, with more challenges than most of us face. She is a wonderful teacher and works with patience and understanding at a school for challenged students. Yet she still goes above and beyond to find time for her profession and colleagues through her involvement in CAEA. I know that she deeply regrets having to leave her position as editor at this time as she transitions into her role as our organization’s President Elect, having loved her work with the magazine and the connection it created with our members. Receiving our Distinguished Service Within the Profession Award is a fitting tribute for all that she has done for our organization, as well as continues to do.”

Distinguished Service Outside the Profession Award Garden Marantino Cesar Chavez Academy Denver (CCA) is a K-8, Title I public charter school in Northwest Denver. The school’s unique, pedagogical approach to curriculum development is founded in the intent to create an environment of rich diversity and differentiation of instruction. Its highly diverse population of students demands a challenging use of all learning modalities to assure continuous progress throughout the school year. Garden Marantino is a highly respected and beloved member of the CCA teaching staff. Although his content area is language arts, Garden loves, respects, and appreciates a visual art education because it helps students access their full potential. This has made him a valued colleague and champion of CCA art teacher, Jesse Diaz. Throughout his tenure at CCA, Garden has been instrumental in collaborating with others to make sure his middle-school students are set up for success. Armed with a deep understanding of the potential of the visual arts to profoundly impact student engagement, Garden effectively wields the power of the visual arts to motivate students and help them achieve comprehension and success. Each year he creates and covers the walls of his classroom with quotation from the depicted individual that embodies the spirit of his or her purpose. In accordance with CCA tradition, the posters are thoroughly utilized and referred to throughout the year and then given to students to inspire them to

Retired Distinguished Leadership Award Kathy Wernsman For more than 30 years, Kathy Wernsman has dedicated her life’s work to promoting art education in Colorado. Now retired, her dedication and passion is undiminished. Karen continues to serve our profession as an advocate, mentor, and inspiration, and continues to positively impact arts education in the state of Colorado. As a teacher in the Fleming School District, Karen’s classes were without parallel. Karen continually sought innovative ways to bring fresh ideas and approaches to creatively challenge her students. In addition, having had the rare opportunity to teach and track children from kindergarten to twelfth grade, Karen meticulously created individual portfolios for each student. The portfolios contained sample work from their first art-making experiences until the end of their high-school careers. These portfolios, upon being revealed during senior year, served as poignant testaments of each child’s personal artistic journey and growth.

Throughout her career, Kathy continually pursued knowledge in order to hone her craft by staying involved with her fellow artists and community and by reciprocating whenever possible. As an active member of both ArtSource Colorado and the Colorado Art Education Association (CAEA), she regularly attends CAEA’s fall conference where she has taught workshops. When administrators did not feel the fall conference was a good use of funds, Kathy even lobbied local districts to allow other art teachers to attend.

Not content to rest upon her laurels after retirement, Kathy continues to advocate for the importance of art in her community. She has been instrumental in organizing and operating the Prairie Winds Art Center of Holyoke, Colorado. This recently-opened art center contains an art gallery and classroom area as well as a gift shop. Kathy arranges monthly exhibits and teaches classes and workshops. She continues to work with children, helping them develop a love of art. She also mentors young art instructors in the area. Additionally, Kathy currently serves as a board member of the Phillips County Arts Council. This nonprofit organization promotes musical performance and art expression in northeastern Colorado and southwestern Nebraska. She raises funds and helps organize an annual concert series and assists with the annual Phillips County Art Show. In 2013, Kathy served as judge of the student art show. Teresa Mailander, secretary to the Phillips Arts Council, concludes, “During this time when budget issues have limited or ended art education in many rural schools, I am thankful for teachers like Kathy Wernsman who dedicated her career to instilling in her students a love for art. Kathy understands the role that art plays in the overall intellectual development of the individual. In her retirement she continues to share her knowledge with members of her community while finally having time to create her own art. For these many reasons, I am honored to nominate Kathy for CAEA’s Retired Art Educator of the Year.”

Museum Art Educators of the Year Award Robin Gallite Robin Gallite is an educator and advocate who continues to actively contribute to the advancement of the field of art education in Colorado. As Director of Education at RedLine in the heart of Denver, Robin is responsible for coordinating RedLine’s Educational Partnership Initiative for the Creative (E.P.I.C.) Arts program. According to the E.P.I.C. Arts program website, the program "empowers young people to become active interpreters within their own unique art practice alongside a professional artist both in and outside of the classroom. The art-making process and resulting artwork becomes a medium through which young people can hone their critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills and express their unique perspective and ideas about today’s world." RedLine partners resident artists with art educators and their students. Together they collaborate to create works of art using the media of the resident artist and looking through the lens of contemporary social justice. The E.P.I.C. Arts program experience culminates each semester in a student show at RedLine's Project Space. Vanessa Hayes-Quintana's students were privileged to participate in the E.P.I.C. Arts program. According to Vanessa, “E.P.I.C. brings students’ school and life experiences full circle in a meaningful and authentic fashion. Robin always thoughtfully facilitates the partnerships between the artist and the school to create the most perfect match. She attends to the unique needs of the student population as the artist and school collaborate in the art making process. Robin supports students’ critical thinking and diverse outcomes through the partnerships, student visits to the gallery, tours and education opportunities, and accommodating the spectacular art work in the gallery shows.”

C A E A

Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU) Professor Rachael Delaney says, “Robin Gallite has consistently demonstrated her commitment to the importance of the arts in the lives of all children. Recognizing the role of nontraditional educational spaces is critical to maintaining a thriving and robust arts education community in the State of Colorado. Every time Robin is able to bring the E.P.I.C. Arts program into a neighborhood school she is directly impacting and supporting this growth.”

A w a r d

Similarly, MSU Professor Anne Thulson concludes, “Robin is the glue that makes all this happen. Her commitment to children, contemporary art and teachers is inspiring and has made artists more aware of art education and students more aware of the professional art world. It gives teachers the opportunity to shine and celebrate their often-invisible practice of the classroom. Robin has done and continues to do this work with a welcoming spirit and tenacious energy and is highly deserving of this prestigious honor.”

The E.P.I.C. Arts program provides a bridge from nontraditional educational spaces to traditional neighborhood settings and is critical to maintaining a thriving and robust arts education community in Colorado. The contemporary and forward-thinking, student-centered pedagogy with which the E.P.I.C. Arts program is being implemented is a direct reflection of both RedLine’s and Robin’s cutting-edge leadership and expansive vision with regards to progressive art education and authentic art making. The E.P.I.C. Arts program inspires students to be practitioners who think beyond the expected and embrace their identity as artists who can contribute to positive change in the world. To that extent, we are all indebted to Robin.

Anya Beebe Anya Beebe is a Licensed Professional Counselor and combines her background as an artist, art teacher, and art therapist to use art as catalyst for transforming emotional and physical distress into healing. After her own personal experiences in using art for healing, Anya sought to help advance the use of art therapy in the healthcare system and conducted one of the first clinically randomized trials using art therapy. Publishing these encouraging results has helped give validity and medical credibility to the uses of art therapy and has helped facilitate more art therapy positions in hospitals. As a leader in the field, Anya has done numerous national and international presentations, TV and radio interviews along with published writings about her research including a chapter in the book, Art Therapy and Health Care, edited by Cathy Malchiodi. Wanting to expand her ability to use the arts to help others, Anya founded the Whole HeARTs Family Center in Centennial, Colorado. Here, she and her team use the creative art therapies to help children and adults with chronic illness, ADHD, sensory issues, autism and parenting along with offering art classes and workshops to the community for personal growth.

Fall Conference 2014 Master Class Artist Biographies Tom Mazzullo The Secrets of Silverpoint Students will learn the old master technique of silverpoint drawing, practiced in the Renaissance, then lost for 500 years. Instructor will begin with a brief history and examples of work. Students will prepare their own materials for drawing, and open class time will be held afterward for drawing from the still-life. Born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1968, Tom Mazzullo earned a BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in 1990, and an MFA from Syracuse University in 1993. He has drawings in museums, foundations, and private collections, including the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York, and the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia. He teaches at the University of Denver, is affiliated with Gildar Gallery and the Arts Students League in Denver, Colorado. His work is drawing in the medieval medium of silverpoint. He starts with simple subjects, like scraps of paper twisted into shapes, in order to make complex, beautiful drawings that scintillate under the effects of light and shade. His interest in drawing has become much more about grace, complexity, and concept in the past two years. The paleness and precision of silverpoint allows him to work slowly, spending time examining the subject then bringing it to life gradually, in subtle, exact tones. Kim Putnam Paper Plate Lithography No Press Need Apply Indulge your curiosity and discover the art of lithography in Paper Plate Lithography - NO Press Need Apply. This low-tech printmaking process uses Xerox copies as plates and no printing press! All skill levels are welcome. Kim Putnam is a Contemporary artist adjunct faculty member at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. As a faculty member of the Foundation department, Putnam teaches drawing and color theory. She has been teaching since 2009. Putnam works primarily in oil, however over the last year she has experimented in a wide range of mediums. Her work includes large-scale oil paintings, photography, printmaking, and installation pieces. She is represented by Kanon Gallery in Denver. Putnam has a Bachelors of Art degree in Communication from Purdue University, a Masters of Art degree in Art History from Ohio State University and is a Masters of Fine Art candidate with Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Tadashi Hayakawa Large Abstract Organic Drawing Tadashi‘s workshop will explore a sensitive and ethereal approach to charcoal and pencil combined with non-traditional mediums. Students will work with canvas. Participants will work from life. Tadashi will share his techniques and will work in a large format. This is a perfect workshop for the person who loves drawing and painting. Tadashi Hayakawa was born in Japan, to an artist loving family. At the age of 19 he immigrated to the US, and studied art in California. In 1969 he received an MFA from OTIS Art Institute. He became a successful graphic artist, owning the business. At the age of 50 Tadashi gave up the Bohemian lifestyle and decided to pursue his real passion, painting. He found himself in Denver and has since gained awe in the public eye. His paintings are spiritual, moving and introspective. Tadashi shows internationally in Los Angeles, New York, and Japan.


Connie Robbins-Brady Spirit Figures

25

When you create a “spirit figure,” the idea is to be mindful, perhaps even prayerful, of your purpose. As you embellish your work with carefully chosen ribbon, fabric, and beads, you are imbuing it with vitality and strength for your intended mission. Connie Robbins-Brady (MA, LPC) has the joy of holding two unique positions in Mesa County Valley schools. Not only is she a school counselor providing classroom, small group, and individual art counseling at Loma Elementary (Loma, CO), she is also the visual arts coordinator for 26 elementary schools. She worked in private practice and was instrumental in developing a hospice bereavement program prior to her work in education. Robbins-Brady believes creative art-making helps people of all ages communicate and work through difficulties toward healing. Jennifer Ghormley Self Portrait Print Exchange Play with multiple artistic interests through the trace monotype print, a process that merges printmaking, drawing, and photography. Bring several 5x7 to 6x9 self-portraits to use as a matrix in the creation of unique and interesting prints to trade with others. Jennifer Ghormley is a working artist who employs a variety of techniques in the translation of ideas into works of art. Recently, she had an installation piece in Paper Work, and exhibition at the MSU Center for Visual Art, Denver, CO. Jennifer actively shows her work through national juried exhibitions and invitational portfolios. She is a curator for the Aspen Chapel Gallery, and served as Program Coordinator for the Venice Printmaking Studio in Italy, 2012-2014. Currently, Jennifer teaches printmaking courses and artistic workshops at the Art Students League of Denver, throughout Colorado, and nationally. She enjoys visiting artist opportunities, giving lectures and demos, interacting with emerging artists and inspiring people through creative possibilities. To embrace all of her creative urges Jennifer creates artwork under her own name, as well as Jen G Studios. She received her MFA in printmaking at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and a 2006 BFA in printmaking from Metropolitan State College of Denver, 2002. Penney Bidwell Heads Up

M a s t e r C l a s s A r t i s t s

In this workshop participants will learn how to sculpt a small bust in ceramic clay. Basic anatomy will be discussed but students will be encouraged to build intuitively and let the subconscious guide them. I came into the world on April Fools’ Day, 1968, and was born into the carnival. My mother had been an accomplished ballerina and later a showgirl on the travelling carnival. My father was a third generation carnie and ride owner. My great grandmother was the tattooed lady in the early 1930’s. The carnival is part of my history and ever present in my subconscious. I strive to capture the intimate and internal experience of the human condition in my artwork. My figures each stand alone, even when part of a group. Each character emerges from the clay directly from my subconscious--characters of imagination, past experiences, family stories, motherhood, fairy tales, and dreams. They are soulful beings, reflective of deep inner experiences: joy, sadness, pride, or embarrassment. Whatever the feeling, it is part of the experience of being human. My new work, "Holding On" explores the notion of holding onto things, people, and ideas. The figures are holding onto something either literally or figuratively. Technically, my sculptural pieces are hand-built from clay and combine slips, oxides, underglazes, and glazes. I strive to create harmonious surfaces that have an underlying complexity that engages the viewer. Each sculpture is multi-fired, anywhere from 3 to 7 times. My intent is not to control my inspirations, but to remain open and let the imagery inspire me as it develops. My subconscious guides my hands, and the story unfolds as I work. The mystery of not knowing where a piece will take me and what I will discover is part of the process that inspires me.

Courtney Cotton Mixed Media Collage “When printed images are torn, when textures confront, when artifacts are assembled together, when ideas collide, there’s always something grandiose happening, the edification of a new world. It goes way beyond paper and ink, and I like it." Depelteau In one composition we will repurpose a painting by tearing it into pieces and using it in a new composition with pieces of metal, string or other bits and pieces that work well with the former painting. Please try to bring a painting on paper or canvas you never resolved to this workshop. If time permits we can also explore sense of humor in collage by using print images. Materials will be provided but if there are certain catalogues, magazines, or images you like feel free to bring these to make your collage more personal. Intuitive Watercolor Cotton will demonstrate the way she paints using acrylic paint and other watersoluble materials. We will make both a representational and non-representational painting that will invite the viewer to participate. Be prepared to paint looser, bolder, freer, lighter and more intuitively. Think experimental and fun. Courtney Cotton is currently living and working in Denver, Colorado. She studied art and architecture at the University of South Carolina, Rhode Island School of Design, and Queens College. An artist who is unafraid to express herself and her zest for people and life, she draws on the influences and inspirations from her travels and experiences putting them effortlessly into her art. It is no wonder she says, “I have more than one visual voice and some find it hard to define or categorize my style.” Sometimes her work is thematic, but just as often she has the impulse to create something without representing anything. Some of her favorite pieces just came about from the act of playing with paint and paper, “I consciously react with the medium, the activity of creating is paramount, and therefore the results happen automatically with the unconscious influence of experiences and emotions.” Her latest accomplishment was winning a hotel card key design for Marriott’s SpringHill Suites. As more private collectors and businesses continue to support her art, Cotton is garnering the discipline and confidence it takes to become a prolific artist. Michael Cellan Drawing the Naked Figure So, How long has it been since you've drawn from a naked figure? Come spend over 3 hours with Michael and his model and learn a new way to see the nude form. Michael is a retired art teacher who has taught everything and all ages. My work is whatever I feel like doing at the time.

CDE Workshop Strands

29

The artist as practitioner, researcher, and teacher is the taproot of the CAEA 2014 Conference. A leading edge in the national conversation on education is instruction of concepts and divergent/problem solving thinking. Visual arts studio practices and application are in part divergent and conceptual thinking. Students in the environment of practice, and inquiry through concept-based instruction are better able to transfer the integrated approaches of rigor and procedural fluency through the arts as well as into the regular classroom. The 2014 CAEA Conference focus is on the application and studio practice of the artist visual arts practices and applications within the studio classroom. At the conference, professional development opportunities for art educators might be either self-selected, or art educators may select to participate in the conference within a specific strand related to the Colorado Visual Arts Academic Standards, 21st Century Skills, assessment practices in the visual arts, inquirybased instructional models, data collection and Educator Effectiveness centered on visual arts practice, application and instruction. CAEA has designed a workshop strand for art educators interested in expanding their instructional practice in conceptbased learning, Colorado Visual Arts Academic Standards as well as elevating 21st century skills in the studio classroom. The following is a suggested professional development workshop strand:

8:30-9:30am 10-12pm 1-3pm 1-3pm 3:30-4:30pm 3:30-4:30pm 3:30-4:30pm 3:30-4:30pm 3:30-4:30pm 8-9am 8-9am 8-9am 8-9am 8-9am 9:30-11:30am 9:30-11:30am 1-3pm 1-3pm 3:30-4:30pm 3:30-4:30pm 3:30-4:30pm 9-10am 9-10am 9-10am 10:15-12:15pm 1:15-2:15pm 2:30-3:30pm 2:30-3:30pm 2:30-3:30pm 3:45-4:45pm 3:45-4:45pm

Washington Ave freer, lighter and more intuitively. Think experimental and fun. Breckenridge Arts District Courtney Cotton is currently living and working in Denver, Colorado. She studied Time: 1-4pm art and architecture at the University of South Carolina, Rhode Island School of Design, and Queens College. An artist who is unafraid to express herself and her zest for people and life, she draws on the influences and inspirations from her travels and experiences putting them effortlessly into her art. It is no wonder she says, “I have more than one visual voice and some find it hard to define or categorize my style.” Sometimes her work is thematic, but just as often she has the impulse to create something without representing anything. Some of her favorite pieces just came about from the act of playing with paint and paper, “I consciously react with the medium, the activity of creating is paramount, and therefore the results happen automatically with the unconscious influence of experiences and emotions.” Her latest accomplishment was winning a hotel card key design for Marriott’s SpringHill Suites. As more private collectors and businesses continue to support her art, Cotton is garnering the discipline and confidence it takes to become a prolific artist.

Ellen’s keynote,“The Deep Structure of the Arts,”traces the roots of art to our early Pleistocene ancestors and to the earliest interactions of mothers with infants. In the discussion, we will explore implications of these findings and gain more understanding of why and how the arts are not only important but necessary to human lives.

The Secrets of Silverpoint

Master Class

Students will learn the old master technique of silverpoint drawing, practiced in the Renaissance, then lost for 500 years. Instructor will begin with a brief history and examples of work. Students will prepare their own materials for drawing, and open class time will be held afterward for drawing from the still-life. Born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1968, Tom Mazzullo earned a BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in 1990, and an MFA from Syracuse University in 1993. He has drawings in museums, foundations, and private collections, including the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York, and the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia. He teaches at the University of Denver, is affiliated with Gildar Gallery and the Arts Students League in Denver, Colorado. His work is drawing in the medieval medium of silverpoint. He starts with simple subjects, like scraps of paper twisted into shapes, in order to make complex, beautiful drawings that scintillate under the effects of light and shade. His interest in drawing has become much more about grace, complexity, and concept in the past two years. The paleness and precision of silverpoint allows him to work slowly, spending time examining the subject then bringing it to life gradually, in subtle, exact tones.

Reclaiming Your Creative Soul As teachers, we often give and do so much for everyone else. Not only do we have to balance working with hundreds of kids and being part of a large team at our schools, we also give of ourselves at home and in our relationships. Even though we teach art to others, sometimes we get so busy that we forget to do art for ourselves and we lose touch with our own creativity. Along the way, we may forget that underneath it all is our AUTHENTIC, CREATIVE, VIBRANT SELF!  This workshop is aimed at honoring and reclaiming our most sacred connection of all - the connection with our authentic self and soul. When we awaken and tap into our creativity, we often find a deeper sense of meaning in our lives and can live with more purpose, passion and joy. Connecting to our creativity also sparks us and gives us more energy and love not only for ourselves, but to give to others as well. Come spend an inspiring afternoon with an incredible group of teachers reconnecting with your authentic self and letting go of limiting beliefs, thoughts and actions. Lead by a former art teacher, art therapist and author Anya Beebe, will take you on a journey of rediscovering and reclaiming your deeper sense of meaning. Through guided visualization, pastels / mixed media, and creative expression, you will have the opportunity to reclaim and revitalize your creative self.

Using Comics to Promote Visual Narratives! Images create rich narratives. Comic Books/Graphic Novels are such rich examples, and students connect so easily with them! In this presentation, we will discuss approaches to incorporating and teaching comic illustration in the classroom. Lessons/Prezis/handouts/examples will all be shared! High school students applied symbolism to show self-awareness. Using new art standards, juxtaposition, chiaroscuro, and self-reflection students connected the effects of dehumanization to their personal experiences. Providing an example of the interconnectedness of learning, that knowledge is not easily compartmentalized. Participants will create quick gestural poses with clay as a means to discover the relationship between the process of art-making and the emphasis on product. Marie Gibbons is a resident artist with Think 360 Arts and regularly teaches clay workshops in schools at her studio in Denver.

Understand how our dynamic global, digital, and knowledge-rich societies of the early 21st century are transforming learning and calling for relevant innovations in educational practice.

Large Abstract Organic Drawing

Master Class

Presenter: Penny Bidwell

In this workshop participants will learn how to sculpt a small bust in ceramic clay. Basic anatomy will be discussed but students Materials Fee: $ 5 will be encouraged to build intuitively and let the subconscious guide them. I came into the world on April Fools’ Day, 1968, and was born into the carnival. My mother had been an accomplished ballerina Location: Ceramic Studio 125 S. Ridge Street and later a showgirl on the travelling carnival. My father was a third generation carnie and ride owner. My great grandmother Breckenridge Arts District was the tattooed lady in the early 1930’s. The carnival is part of my history and ever present in my subconscious. I strive to capture the intimate and internal experience of the human condition in my artwork. My figures each stand alone, even when part of a Time: 9-12 noon group. Each character emerges from the clay directly from my subconscious--characters of imagination, past experiences, family stories, motherhood, fairy tales, and dreams. They are soulful beings, reflective of deep inner experiences: joy, sadness, pride, or embarrassment. Whatever the feeling, it is part of the experience of being human. My new work, "Holding On" explores the notion of holding onto things, people, and ideas. The figures are holding onto something either literally or figuratively. Technically, my sculptural pieces are hand-built from clay and combine slips, oxides, underglazes, and glazes. I strive to create harmonious surfaces that have an underlying complexity that engages the viewer. Each sculpture is multi-fired, anywhere from 3 to 7 times. My intent is not to control my inspirations, but to remain open and let the imagery inspire me as it develops. My subconscious guides my hands, and the story unfolds as I work. The mystery of not knowing where a piece will take me and what I will discover is part of the process that inspires me.
