President’s Message by Vanessa Hayes-Quintana
Summer is in full swing, but the new school year calls me to reflections and the type of planning that is usually seen in January. This is my time of year to take inventory, assess, and plan my goals for the new year. Excitement surrounding CAEA goals has carried me through a couple of tough teaching years. Aside from my personal quest to engage in the most meaningful and fulfilling activities, my work as president has shed a light of positive anticipation on the upcoming school year, and hope of creations to come.
The NAHS Leadership Day will connect Colorado colleges with high school students and teachers through hands-on workshops and discussions of the colleges’ offerings and portfolio development. A big part of my summer is spent managing CAEA business. With our Fall conference as the biggest focus, our reps and I have envisioned ways to make CAEA relevant to more art teachers and members.
One way we’re doing this is strengthening CAEA’s connection to high school teachers and students, and building the connection high school students have to Colorado’s colleges and universities. For the conference this year, we have planned a strong track of high school studio workshops. Even more exciting is the introduction of our first National Arts Honor Society (NAHS) Leadership Day. With our High School Representative Justine Sawyer and our President-Elect DJ Osmack, we have planned the beginnings of what we envision to be a vital part of our Colorado art education community. NAHS Leadership Day will be held the week after our conference, on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at South High School in Denver. The NAHS Leadership Day will connect Colorado colleges with high school students and teachers through hands-on workshops and discussions of the colleges’ offerings and portfolio development. Students will have the opportunity to engage individually and with groups as they explore the arts beyond Grade 12. Creative industries are an overwhelming part of Colorado’s economy,
Our conference will be a tremendous event! 2017 marks CAEA’s 80th anniversary.

and helping high school art students connect to Colorado’s colleges is an important part of CAEA’s Strategic Plan. Future plans for NAHS Leadership Day will include Junior NAHS participation. I look forward to the many good things to come from this new event, and from supporting the strength of our high school art programs. I hope you all make time to attend our annual Fall conference this year, “It’s Always Time for Art.” Our conference will be a tremendous event! 2017 marks CAEA’s 80th anniversary. This is something to be very proud of! CAEA has served countless art teachers and students throughout the years, and this very special milestone will be fully celebrated in November! Look forward to the usual array of workshops and Master Classes. This year we have 150 scheduled workshops and nine Master Classes. You can find Educator Effectiveness and High School workshop tracks online along with a full calendar of events. There is definitely something for everyone! Keynote speakers are Portia Munson, Michael Bell, and Leo Segedin. Mandy Hallenius of the DaVinci Initiative returns to present more workshops. There will also be the Vendor Reception, Art Auction, Karaoke, Awards Banquet, and the Saturday Night Bash. Many past presidents and board members are joining us as honored guests.
Creative industries are an overwhelming part of Colorado’s economy, and helping high school art students connect to Colorado’s colleges is an important part of CAEA’s Strategic Plan. Don’t forget to bring a piece of art for the auction. Auction funds support CAEA’s scholarship funds. Congratulations to Erica Richard for receiving the 2017 Teacher Scholarship! Following our Awards
Banquet is the Saturday Night Bash. Denver band Wash Park will help us celebrate CAEA’s 80th anniversary and cap off a weekend of connections and great art making. “Full Steam Ahead” is the theme for the Saturday Night Bash, and everyone is invited to “costume up” in their favorite speakeasy/ steam punk/whatever-suits-your-fancy 1930s creation.
Our CAEA representative elections are coming at the end of this year. If you are interested in supporting art education work in Colorado, we’d love to have you join us! At the conference, we will also have registration open for the Summer 2018 DaVinci Initiative workshops to be held in Colorado Springs and at Adams State University in Alamosa. This is a fantastic opportunity for both teachers and students to refine their art skills. Amanda Hallenius will be teaching the classes and will be available for questions at the conference. Our CAEA representative elections are coming at the end of this year. If you are interested in supporting art education work in Colorado, we’d love to have you join us! You can contact me or any CAEA rep if you are interested. CAEA is a fantastic organization, full of serving, connecting, and learning. Member participation makes us vibrant, and you’ll find relevant, meaningful, fulfilling connections that further your work as an art educator. See you at the conference in Breckenridge in November!
Letter From the Editor

Setting the Stage for Another Great Year by Alexandra Overby, PhD Here we go again – another school year starting and we are all hitting the ground running. While we all will be mourning how quickly the summer flew by, I know all of us are working hard to make our classrooms ready for another set of students. Say goodbye to your flip-flops and the ability to go to the bathroom whenever you want and let’s make this year an exciting one!
Do you ever think about the big ideas first? This is my favorite way to design my year.
How do you develop curriculum for your classes? The obvious answer is to look at our Colorado State Visual Art Standards.¹ While they are great in their openness and focus on big concepts in our content, they can also be daunting and unhelpful for some of our teachers who want something more defined. You can also look to the national standards supported by NAEA. The national standards are much more defined and complex and they work in tandem with our Colorado standards. Using two sets of standards is a little more work, but they can set the overall academic expectations for your curriculum.
war/conflict; and nature.2 Working with big ideas allows you to focus the units on meaning and communication while teaching students the technical skills they need to be successful. Big ideas work well in both choice-based and traditional art classrooms and can be designed to meet the developmental needs of your students. Since I teach adolescents, I tend to use themes such as power and identity because I know they are interested in those topics. While I choose a new big idea for each unit, I have met teachers who are extremely creative and have used just one big idea to weave through their entire curriculum for the year!
Do you ever think about the big ideas first? This is my favorite way to design my year. Big ideas are essential, universal themes that run across the humanities such as family; identity; home;

¹The Colorado Visual Art Standards are getting a re-haul! The committee has been set and they are starting the work to refine and make our standards even stronger. Be on the lookout for the final results. 2A great book about using big ideas is Teaching Meaning in Artmaking by S. Walker (Davis Publications). 3 https://www.edutopia.org/pdfs/resources/wiggins-mctighe-backward-design-why-backward-is-best.pdf

I have been collecting ideas from museum visits, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Pinterest, art websites, and talks with other teachers. I keep a notebook and jot down ideas as they come to me…. I have also found inspirations from my students. students prepared for the final expectation. This way of working forces me to think about how much time this unit would take; how many lessons are needed for students to learn the concepts; what resources and materials are needed; and what assessments need to be done to check for understanding. Sure, it takes time. But if I have a strong structure to the unit, it makes the day-today planning so much easier. So how do you get your ideas? Getting new ideas and developing them into lessons can be tiring. I am the first to admit that I have used worn-out lessons because I ran out of time or was at that point of the year where I was exhausted. This year, my goal is to collect ideas while I am rested from summer break. I have been collecting ideas from museum visits, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Pinterest, art websites, and talks with other teachers. I keep a notebook and jot down ideas as they come to me. When I am (finally) ready to prep for the school year, I will look at this notebook and choose the strongest ideas to develop as units. I have also found inspirations from my students. Let’s face it, our students have much more time to surf Instagram and the web to find things that interest them. They are usually more than willing to share their findings and introduce you to new
artists and trends. It’s a great way for you to build relationships with them and helps you stay aware of what your students are being influenced by. With older students, you can open dialogue about appropriation and finding their own style (rather than copying exactly what they see). Younger students can share their favorite YouTube videos and pop-culture trends. Best wishes for productive and energizing planning that will set you up for an amazing school year! Share your ideas with us—send us your lesson plans, photos, and articles about what you do as an art teacher and artist! Collage is always looking for new voices to share with our CAEA community!

Artist Claudia Roulier
ArtSource Professional Development with Artist Claudia Roulier and Art Educator Gwen Ahlers CAEA 2017 Fall Conference by Gwen Ahlers
Collage Fall 2017
Whether you are an ArtSource member or not, this workshop will be an amazing opportunity to meet new faces, interact with your art peers, and explore your artistic process. Come join ArtSource members and our special guest artist Claudia Roulier to create a work of art and find out what ArtSource is up to. This will be a truly fun and inspiring workshop! All are welcome and it’s free to all. Do you ever collect objects, art supplies, or paper that you plan to use in a work of art? Are you just drawn to certain things? Claudia has objects sitting in her studio to admire and look at for inspiration. Although she has some favorite things that she collects, she says that the “things she loves the most don’t always belong” and some never find their way into her work but they have a way of inspiring her or creating a bridge in other directions. Claudia will present her artistic vision and techniques, and her fun, whimsical, and surreal insights through combinations of collected found objects and natural material. Claudia loves working with themes such as urban decay and end times. She loves bones and is always collecting them, saying that they are a perfect metaphor for the life cycle. “I strive to draw new ideas and emotions from the solid, firm underpinnings of the past.” Whether you are an ArtSource member or not, this workshop will be an amazing opportunity to meet new faces, interact with your art peers, and explore your artistic process. It’s always time for art.
What to bring: toys, collectables, jewelry, papers, string, etc. that could become a small 3-D work of art. What will be provided by ArtSource: glue, paint, collage papers, tins, and small wooden pieces. Want to know more about Claudia Roulier? You can find artist Claudia Roulier in all the right places throughout the Denver area. She has a working studio and teaches classes. I had so much fun finding Claudia this summer at the Art Students League and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival. Just looking at her work, you can see how much she enjoys creating drawings, paintings, mixed-media assemblage, installations, and sculpture. Like most artists, Claudia is a collector. She collects old photos, eclectic natural material, and objects that inspire her work. Visit Claudia’s studio at Prism Gallery, 999 Vallejo, Denver. Most days: M-W-F 10-3 http://www.claudiaroulier.com/index.html Want to know more about ArtSource? ArtSource is a wonderful state organization that supports art educators from all over the state of Colorado with professional development, art advocacy, and leadership training. Find our website on the CAEA resource bar and come join us at the conference to find out more: • Visit our ArtSource table across from the registration lobby. • Please join us for our annual ArtSource luncheon. It’s right after our professional development workshop. The luncheon is free to all.
Explore and Create
by Sam Mizwicki, Vail Mountain School CAEA Representative for Private/Independent/Charter Schools One of my professional goals during the 20162017 school year was to find ways to further support my students who had an interest in an art career. They are so talented and I wanted to try and expose them to a variety of possibilities. The Vail Mountain School (VMS) sets aside a whole week called Intraterm, which VMS’s website describes as: “A week-long ‘term between terms’ for upper school students and faculty. All other classes are put on hold, giving students the opportunity to participate in intensive explorations of subjects beyond the regular curriculum and, perhaps,
beyond their normal scope of interest and often with a travel component.” With this article, I hope to give you some ideas of local resources to try out with your students or even on your own. After much planning and preparation, we set out on our trip entitled “Professions in the Art World.” Ten students, Susanne (another art teacher), and I piled into our VMS van and headed to Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD). We basked in the sunshine as we toured around the campus. The tour was followed by a workshop
Collage Fall 2017
geared towards artist collaboration. Many people think of being an artist as a “solo mission,” but RMCAD helped demonstrate that artist collaboration is a skill that is absolutely necessary in many creative industries. My students were electrified at seeing the studios and the artwork produced by artists not much older than them. For our second stop that day, we headed to one of my favorite workshop sites: The Ink Lounge in Denver. The Ink Lounge offers open studio, workshops, prints for sale, and commercial printmaking. Stu and Nicky have a tremendous amount of creativity flowing through them. They use printmaking as a platform to share their passion. I would call Nicky a “screen-printing workshop guru”
After much planning and preparation, we set out on our trip entitled â€œProfessions in the Art World.â€?

who is always filled with loads of excitement for every workshop she leads. My students prepared drawings on their own the week prior, learned the screen-printing process, and printed their unique designs on shirts at the studio. This was the highlight of their trip and I know they would have been content being there for the whole week! I only wish I lived closer to participate in more of their offerings. Our second day was spent at everybodyâ€™s favorite: The Denver Art Museum (DAM). We toured the exhibition entitled Glory of Venice: Masterworks of the Renaissance. My students learned some typical characteristics of Renaissance Art while wandering
in and out of the grand gallery spaces. One of their favorite areas of the museum was the hands-on fashion area. As they quickly scattered around to sketch and drape fabric on mannequins, we could immediately see it was second nature. The DAM is such a great resource and schools are lucky to be able to come free of charge to most exhibits. In February, the mountains are often hit with big snowstorms, so I hoped our next travels would not be canceled. Before our trip, I watched the weather all night long and into the early morning. Luckily, we got the green light to head over to another little gem: The Aspen Art Museum, which is incredible. The Education Department of the Aspen Art
A debrief with my students confirmed that the hands-on activities were their favorite parts. Museum is absolutely stellar. I teach there as a Summer Educator and get to see the magic happen firsthand. This day was special because Annie and Michelle, with the AAM Education team, designed a customized program just for us. I told them what I was hoping for and they hit it out of the park. The students were amazed when informed about the life of a curator. I think the students were the most intrigued with the travel component the job often offers. I could see the gears turning in their minds as they imagined what it could be like for them a few years down the road.
We toured the museum and ended the day meeting the hard-working installation team during the Jack Pierson install. Mr. Pierson was there watching it all and even said a quick hello to us! The Aspen Art Museum is also free of charge and provided us with a tasty and complimentary lunch! It is a must-see for all, but I definitely encourage you to bring your students if you are an educator. On our fourth day, we had already had quite a bit of windshield time and decided to stick close to home to see what our Vail Valley had to offer. The Alpine Arts Center in Edwards hosted us in their studio space. Lauren Merrill, the owner, talked about the business side and how she opened her own place years after teaching in a K-12 setting. She showed us projects from her college days to give a little taste of what post-high-school art could be for them. Lauren takes interns which is a great way for art lovers to see the inner workings before committing to a major in college.

The second half of the day was spent with two amazing guest speakers who came to see us at VMS. Kevin Banker of Banker Cinefoto shared enthusiastically about what it takes to be a professional photographer. The students were especially interested in seeing the work that he did with drones. Victoria Jones of Worth Interiors gave us a roadmap of what it really takes to be in interior design. One big take-away was that “interior designers may decorate, but decorators do not design. There is a difference.” Although we are a small community here in the Vail Valley, there are many young creative types who have found success in their own way. Our last day was spent at BreckCreate, an interdisciplinary arts district in Breckenridge, Colorado. We toured the spaces including the live/work studios for travelling artists. I could not help but think that maybe one of my students will be creating art there one day! BreckCreate has numerous incredible offerings and we jumped at the opportunity to participate in a workshop about magazine transfers. Extraordinary art can be made with Citra Solv (a plant-based cleaning product) and National Geographic magazines, which art teachers always seem to have lying around. As anticipated, my students loved getting their hands dirty and creating again. A debrief with my students confirmed that the hands-on activities were their favorite parts. This made complete sense to me because, as artists, we are the ones who are drawn to making something with our hands instead of sitting and listening in a
lecture hall. The desire to make flows through our veins as a true passion. It is refreshing to see these young adults excited for the arts since they hold such an important place in this world. I was extremely grateful to have this significant opportunity to spend five days outside of the classroom with my ten high-school art students and my co-leaders. After this Intraterm, I knew that I had exposed my students to things that I do not always teach about. They got to see and live it, instead of just hearing about it. They learned that the creative industries are growing rapidly and that there are countless options to pursue if they wish. As a result of this trip, they even started their own Instagram page featuring art from VMS students. I feel that my professional goal was met while developing strong relationships along the way. I can’t wait to start planning for Intraterm 2018! I am hoping to take a group to study art in Japan at some point in my time with VMS. Why not dream big? Get out there, explore, and create! Editor’s Note: Sam Mizwicki is one of the three art teachers at Vail Mountain School in Vail, Colorado. VMS is a K-12 Independent school. Sam is the CAEA representative for private/independent/charter schools. Contact her with any questions at email@example.com.

Shining Bear A rt Studio s by Mike Carroll Professional Educator Visual Arts Specialist Ryan Elementary
Collage Fall 2017
I try to live by the thought that art only can come from two places – the heart or the mind. So when I don’t have to collect data on what my kids create to prove they are “showing growth,” I am truly free to facilitate the artist. And let them grow at their own rate, in their own time. So....I started Shining Bear Art Studios three years ago. I wanted to do more art with kids, but without the hassle of the “Learning Targets” or the worry of how an administrator would evaluate me. And that is coming from someone who has had many administrators who thought highly of me to begin with. I’ve been very lucky that way – for 18 years now.
a building to work in, but to be out in the fresh air with easels and paints and pastels (open air painting) and a picnic lunch is awesome. And, oh my goodness, three hours of activity without a screen, electronics, or even a phone. Forgive me, but I think kids need that. Wait, I don’t want your forgiveness – if you don’t agree with me, then you probably aren’t reading Collage.
I, however, am a teacher. I don’t really have any “extra” money. So, with two teenagers, a wife, two dogs, and a mortgage, I started a business without a building to work in. Shining Bear Art Studios was started in April of 2015 by me, Mike Carroll, public-school art teacher. I believe that an arts education is necessary for the development of the full potential of our brain. (I focus on the visual arts, but when I say “arts” I am referring to art, music, theater, dance and movement.) I have been an art teacher in the public school system since 2000 and have now expanded to create Shining Bear Art Studios so that I can reach more students. I am used to handling six to seven classes per day, with class sizes sometimes above 30 students. At Shining Bear, we try to keep our classes much smaller so the student-and-teacher interactions can be much more productive. We usually max out our class size at 15 students. This is so important. The one-on-one interaction is so essential for releasing the potential within a student. Shining Bear started small with huge support from my family. All of our first classes were outside for the “Art in the Park” kind of experience. What a great success! Some criticized me for not having
This is a cool dream come true for me. I get to help kids be artists and learn some cool art concepts along the way. I go over a lesson, but make sure I don’t get on their case if their creative side takes over and has nothing to do with my lesson. I stay
detached from the need to know what the outcome will be. My students reinforce what I believe an artist should do...create! I try to live by the thought that art only can come from two places – the heart or the mind. So when I don’t have to collect data on what my kids create to prove they are “showing growth,” I am truly free to facilitate the artist. And let them grow at their own rate, in their own time. But wait. I am an educator. There is a difference between being an artist and being in an art education program. I do have to show growth in my students’ learning. The district is paying me to help these children become contributing members to our society. Why should they pay me if I’m not effective in doing so? Why should they trust me to do so?
Well, it is because I am the expert. I have had to educate some of my evaluators on what it is that I do. Not everyone understands what we do in art, music, P.E., dance, and theatre. Or the benefits that these things bring. Or the fact that I accomplish these things with about 42 hours of contact time per year. (I’m an elementary art teacher and, yes, 45-minute classes per day divided by art, music, and P.E. is about 42 hours per school year that I see the kids.) Although I am not truly unleashing the “Artist Within,” I like to believe that I am building the foundation to release the creativity within each of my students. Not everyone can be the next Picasso. But everyone can be a creative problem solver. A good arts curriculum can help develop creative problem solvers if the curriculum is implemented the correct way. I have found a little bit of Shining Bear has crept into my teaching strategies. I think it was always there but, in the past three years, it is definitely more prevalent. I take an approach of teaching concepts – not products – and seeing what happens. If for some reason I don’t see the concept in a student’s final product, then I have a discussion with that student to see if the concept registered. In the end, I get a lot of different “products” out of my students. My rubrics are based highly on conceptual understanding. I have a bit of leeway in the elementary arena because the differences in motor-skill levels are extreme in K-6. I refuse to “grade” motor skills. I’ve seen secondgrade skills exceed sixth-grade skills and I’ve seen sixth-grade skills that are equivalent to those of a typical first grader. Concept is everything. Motor skills are but a guide. The system has some problems, as I am sure many of you would agree. My philosophy is but one in a sea of many.

I have been an art teacher in the public school system since 2000 and have now expanded to create Shining Bear Art Studios so that I can reach more students.
I don’t claim to have all the right answers, but I know what works for me and allows me to be at peace with how I teach – and live, for that matter. I know my students love me and I know that many of the parents of the students I teach appreciate what I do. It gets tricky sometimes to provide the “data” that the administrators want since we deal with such a subjective subject, but if you deal with the understanding of concepts and do not worry about how “pretty” the product is, you’ll find you can navigate those seas. Being an arts educator is hard. Many don’t understand it and many don’t appreciate it. Most likely, if you are reading this, you are an educator and you do understand. If you are an educator in any genre, you are understood and appreciated by me. Yours is a noble cause. It is for the betterment of our society. You are helping to facilitate the most instinctual way of learning for the human race. Art, music, theater, and movement were the ways we learned before there was a classroom with desks. Keep doing what you are doing. We are a better world because of you.

A Window intoWestern Art by Kayla Green 2017-2018 Colorado Kids Create Intern
“Still Takes My Breath Away” by Jack Moss
Collage Fall 2017
While attending the Windows to the West Art Show this summer, I got the opportunity to interview a plethora of unique artists. All had a different story to tell about their work. Most artists have the same overall goal: To express themselves and make us feel something, whether it’s happiness, sorrow, or a longing for completion. Artists use different mediums and tones that reflect their backgrounds, passions, and uniqueness. I am the 2017-2018 Colorado Kids Create Intern. This is exciting to me for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the program rewards kids’ passion for drawing and encourages self-expression and, being an artist myself, I find this compelling to represent. Secondly, I am excited to connect to the Colorado art community at large. While attending the Windows to the West Art Show this summer, I got the opportunity to interview a plethora of unique artists. All had a different story to tell about their work. Jack Moss, a watercolor painter, grew up in Texas and pulls his motivation from his inner, adventurous kid. He paints horses and cowboys to show the excitement of them and his love for both. (See watercolor painting on previous page.) He began with a how-to book on painting horses and made it a life goal. Jack is now a well-known artist who shows adventure through his paintings. Mia Delode, an oil painter, pulls motivation from what she sees. She paints the crude reality of life and uses a palette knife as opposed to a brush. She is attracted to subjects that have an affinity for standing tall in tough situations. For example, she paints bison because they are strong in harsh situations. Her dark color palette reflects this and the drama she views in life.
Gail Jones, a sculptor, draws motivation from her desire to make stones come to life. She grew up with a father who owned a quarry. Having a surplus of stone, her father questioned how to use the excess. Jones discovered how. She went to live with a family member and learned to sculpt and manipulate stone into gorgeous images, developing her own techniques. Jones uses different texturing of stone to portray her messages and draw attention to them. She often represents her brother in her work. Thomas White (White Eagle), a model, desires to hold artists accountable to represent his culture properly. White comes from a Native American background and he and his two sons model for paintings and drawings. White massively enjoys learning about people through this experience along with riding horses. The most influential person he has come across is Tom Hansel, who also holds artists to a high standard of historical accuracy. Hansel introduced White to information he hadn’t known. The younger generation needs to be encouraged to continue showing their passions in life through art. Art is a way for all of us to connect on a deeper level along with a way of expressing ourselves outwardly. So, take the time and appreciate someone's art or create something yourself. It doesn’t have to be at a professional level for it to have meaning and heart.
North Eastern Colorado Professional Development Day by Christina Martinez CAEA North East Regional Representative
We got together and had a professional development day for the teachers of the North East Region of Colorado. It was a raving success and we learned tons and tons of printmaking techniques that we can use in the classroom with students. Collage Fall 2017
We did it, we finally did it! We got together and had a professional development day for the teachers of the North East Region of Colorado. It was a raving success and we learned tons and tons of printmaking techniques that we can use in the classroom with students. Carrie Mann, who teaches K-12 in Merino, Colorado, was gracious enough to let us use her classroom. The classroom started out clean but, by the end of the day, it was covered in wonderful prints of all kinds, shapes, and sizes.
my students use different types of media all on the same screen because they will all come out a little different and then it is fun to talk about what worked well and what did not work well. After you draw on the screen, you fill your ink well with transparent base extender. I have used Speedball. Wet the screen and print as you would with a normal screen. The transparent base will lift the media off the screen and onto the paper. You can make one or more prints until the media is completely off the screen.
Here are the processes we covered:
Wash your screens out right away to keep the base extender from drying on the screen. The base extender will take more time to dry than your average ink, so please be aware of that.
1. Deconstructed Screen Printing 2. No-Print Print 3. Heliograph Print 4. Screen Printing Using Drawing Fluid and Screen Filler 5. Marbling 6. Glue-Line Print 7. Water-Soluble Media Printing
I want to focus on water-soluble media printing. This print is super fun and very easy for kids of all ages to do.
Now I did say you could do this with all ages. I tried it out with my Kindergarten students this year. They had a blast! I rolled out some brown Kraft paper I brought from RAFT to have the students print on and then, in groups, I let them go to town printing on the paper. I set the big sheets aside. During the following class period, I explained how to label them and we cut out our prints and labeled them.
First, you start with a blank-screen printing screen. Next, you let your students draw on the screen with any kind of water-soluble media such as watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, washable markers, or pretty much anything water soluble. I like to let
With my students, I really wanted them to see what screen printing is and how it is done. It was great! You can definitely adapt this one and make it your own. I hope this is something you might try in your rooms.

Ways to get involved in Colorado’s Youth Art Month (REMEMBER: It’s Youth Art Month All Year Long—Not just March!) Everything you do throughout the year advocates for the arts and your program—please share your ideas and achievements. 1. Create flag designs: Have your students create flag designs for submission and submit the physical work Friday, November 3, 2017, at the CAEA Fall Conference
2. Consider planning an event or art show: Listed below are SUGGESTIONS, not requirements: • Consider doing an activity correlating to the current year YAM theme. The goal of participating in this activity is to advocate for the arts, so if your project can involve people outside the art education field, that is great! See the resource pages at www.caeaco.org for ideas. • Include “C.A.E.A. presents YOUTH ART MONTH 2018” (or something similar) on all advertising such as flyers, posters, and invitations to have a farther-reaching appeal. • YAM is nationally celebrated in March. Strive to have your exhibit in March. However, if that is not possible, it can be held at some other time. • Remember to invite local dignitaries to your celebration and reception. 3. Request a YAM Mayoral/Dignitary Proclamation/School Board Resolution: Contact your local congressional representative, mayor, school board or school district officials/ principals, superintendents, artists, businesses etc. Suggest they make a proclamation declaring March as Youth Art Month (sample form available at www.caeaco.org under the YAM tab). 1. Write a brief letter. Include the suggested proclamation and/or endorsement—IT IS ALREADY PREPARED FOR YOUR USE! Simple, yet powerful to do! 2. Your mayor/dignitary will read the information, approve the proclamation, and have it prepared for his/her signature. After you pick it up, duplicate it for distribution. 3. Include an appearance request. 4. The Board of Education will usually add the request to the agenda. Public officials are usually eager to participate in YAM, if you will just ask them!
4. Contact your local news media for event coverage and recognition: One goal of YAM is to make art education visible in our schools and community. (Press release form is available at www.caeaco.org)
5. Be a part of the State YAM Report: Please document all YAM activities and events and submit to caeayam@gmail by May 1st, 2018. Your submission will be included in a statewide report, which is sent to the National YAM chairperson.
Thank you for your participation!

C herr y C reek S chool D istrict V isual A rts W orkshops 2017-2018 by Lisa Adams, Eaglecrest High School This year the Cherry Creek School District (CCSD) will be offering an ERO/Adams State course series of workshops specifically for Visual Arts teachers! This is an opportunity for us to educate, collaborate, develop, and participate in valid instructional and meaningful workshops that specifically tailor to Visual Arts pedagogy and needs and target professional, student, and personal growth. There are 12 offerings in 2017-2018 from August through April. Workshops take place on Mondays from 4:307:30 p.m. Locations vary depending on course. Registering for these opportunities is a two-step process: • Sign up for the credit in ERO • Select individual sessions through the 2017-18 Workshop Descriptions page. When choosing credit in ERO, you have three options: CCSD; Adams State University; and out–of-district participant. CCSD credit stays with you only while you are employed by the district. University credit stays with you wherever your career path leads. Ten attended courses fulfill the 2-credit hour requirements. Five attended classes earn 1 credit hour. You must sign up for the 1- or 2-credit option to receive CCSD or University credit. This is recommended for teachers who are looking for horizontal advancement. In a two-part course, you are required to take the first part as a prerequisite, but the second part is recommended, not required. If you want CEU/certification credit experience only, you can take as many workshops as you want. This would be for teachers who may be at salary cap but still need to recertify with CDE (which requires some university experience). Priority seating goes to credit-seeking teachers. If you want the studio and pedagogy experience only, you may take as many workshops as you want. (However, priority seating goes to credit-seeking teachers.) Search the 2017-18 Workshop Descriptions and sign up for individual sessions using this link. This course series of workshops is open to other district teachers as well. Please share the link. All classes are applicable in K-12 settings. Classes are taught by colleagues, other artists, and experts in the field – all geared to fit an art teacher’s needs.

Schedule Thursday, November 2 Mandy Hallenius Oil Painting “En Grisaille” Thursday, November 2 9:00am - 12:00pm
Historically, artists were trained to draw first, then paint in black and white (known as “grisaille”) and then with a full color palette. Learning how to paint in black and white is a criticial skill to transition students from the world of drawing to the world of painting. In this workshop, participants will discover the major principles that control how light reveals form, and then paint a grisaille sphere in oil paint. Safety, cleanup, and classroom management when using oil paint will be covered in depth. Although this class is targeted at teaching high school level oil painting theory concepts, all K-12 art teachers interested in learning how to manage oil painting lessons in their classrooms are encouraged to attend. Materials Provided: All supplies will be provided courtesy of the Da Vinci Initiative. Materials to Bring: Participants are encouraged to bring a sketchbook for note-taking. All other supplies will be provided courtesy of the Da Vinci Initiative. Materials fee is included in class registration fee.
Nancy Branca The Act of Painting Thursday, November 2 1:00 - 4:00pm
Using water-mixable oils, participants will paint at a fast-moving pace, producing representational yet expressive works. By taking risks, experimenting and not becoming so emotionally concerned with the product, the artist can enjoy the act of painting. Materials Provided: Canvas, Water Mixable Oils, Palette, Brushes, Water Cups, Rags and Still Life Materials. Materials to Bring: Paint Brushes Materials fee is included in class registration fee.
Friday, November 3 Keynote Master Class Portia Munson
Observing the Object: A Workshop in Acrylic Still-Life Painting Friday, November 3 9:00am - 12:00pm A key part of my artistic process is to use the act of painting to consider the deeper meanings of the seemingly insignificant objects that I collect or otherwise feel drawn to. In this class, participants will choose an object from their immediate possessions and use it to create a small acrylic painting from observation. Composition, color, technique and content will all be considered as we work on our paintings. Materials Provided: Gessoed boards, brushes, paint (primary colors, black, white), water containers, palettes, rags/ paper towels for cleanup. Materials to Bring: Participants can bring their own brushes and paints if they like and a smock/work clothes. Materials fee is included in class registration fee.
Sieger Hartgers Drawing of Hands and Feet Friday, November 3 9:00am - 12:00pm

Sunday, November 5 Laura Thompson AP Master Class Sunday, November 4 9:00am - 12:00pm
Do you teach AP Studio Art? Would you like to? This master class is designed for high school teachers who answer yes to these questions! Even if you don’t teach AP now, or you might in the future, you will learn strategies to get better work from your students. I have been a reader for AP College Board for six years, jurying the portfolios with 125 other education professionals from around the country. I also teach workshops for College Board on AP Studio Art. That experience has helped me better understand how to help you improve your student work and get those coveted 4’s and 5’s on the exam! While we talk and share we will create a Breadth (range of approach) sample that you can use next week in your classroom. As we create we will talk about these subjects- (many are important in all your HS Art classes) pacing the class, plagiarism, critique, managing student work, what are “Breadth RA” “Concentration SI” and “Quality”, how is 2D different from drawing?, portfolio exam prep, preparing for digital submission, practice grading “reading” using AP rubric, internet site resources…. Spend some time with your AP peers, and improve your practice as an AP teacher! Materials to Bring: Flash drive, samples of your AP student artwork, rubrics and other handouts you use in your AP class, your AP syllabi, timelines, etc. Materials fee is included in class registration fee.
