about faea

s my time ends as the President of FAEA, I look back fondly over the important work that the Board of Directors has been able to accomplish. Action and work happens within our committees, consisting of both board members and volunteers. Here are just a few of the many highlights and accomplishments from our outgoing committees.

Lark Keeler

President, FAEA

The Awards Committee has moved forward a record-breaking number of nominees from FAEA to be considered for national recognition by NAEA. —Dr. Nicole Crane, Chair The Advocacy Committee, has grown its initiatives by sending 1000 postcards in efforts to encourage support for the arts at the state level and creating a 30 Days of Advocacy campaign on FAEA social media. —Kristina Latraverse, Chair The Exhibitions Committee has provided training for FAEA members in adjudication connected to the K-12 Student Art Assessment and Virtual Exhibition to better promote understanding of excellence in student visual art. —Nancy Puri, Chair The NAEA award-winning FAEA publication, Fresh Paint, created by the Editorial Committee, has continued to provide articles, information, research, and educational highlights of important content for our membership. —Dr. Nicole Crane, Chair The Partners and Sponsors Committee has worked to build and cultivate long-lasting relationships with supporters, vendors, organizations, and exhibitors to provide outstanding opportunities for members at conference and beyond. —Katie Avra, Chair The most recent Annual Conference was organized by the Professional Development Committee and was incredibly well attended, featuring powerful and passionate keynote speakers. Offering new pathways, a conference app, and special drop-in collaborative events, the committee created innovative and exciting new offerings. —Dr. Jackie Henson-Dacey, Chair My list could go on and on, because I was working alongside committees full of energetic, enthusiastic, experts who wanted to give back through volunteerism. As I transition to become our Past-President, I couldn’t be prouder of the accomplishments we were able to achieve. I encourage you to consider volunteering to work with a committee in the future. Being a committee member is terrific leadership development, as you become a part of the integral volunteerism that is the force behind all of the programming and events FAEA offers. I hope you consider volunteering. If you are interested, email info@faea.org with your contact information. Best,

onnections, creativity, and building relationships with colleagues became the themes that emerged from this year’s FAEA Annual Conference in Ponte Vedra Beach at Sawgrass Marriott. Participating in the forums, workshops, and demonstration sessions enhanced FAEA’s strategic plan by organizing these experiences into pathways Jackie Henson-Dacey for learning. As I enter the presidency of FAEA in January, part of my President, FAEA mission will be to bring the strategic plan to life through ongoing professional learning, traveling around the state, collaborating with colleagues, and communicating with our members. Be on the look-out for ‘Postcards from the President’ focused on: Organizational Vibrancy; Research and Knowledge; Learning; Community; and Advocacy. A multimodality professional learning in mid-January, for the 2020-2021 FAEA incoming board, will provide the guidance, support, and vision to excite the next generation as they forge the path toward excellence in art education leadership. Thankfully, FAEA has had superior leadership with our outgoing president, Lark Keeler. Embracing Lark’s vision and management style provided a renewed level of community engagement as our advocacy and other initiatives grew exponentially. I am grateful to have this opportunity to serve the members of FAEA with an inclusive and diverse incoming board of directors. Having an opportunity to infuse creative leadership methods is a passion I am dedicated to bringing into our community, along with incoming President-Elect, Nancy Puri. As I travel the state, virtually and physically, I will be seeking members to serve on our committees, task forces, and special projects. A big part of being a leader is to identify and nurture those skills in others. Encouraging a lively, productive, and rewarding environment to help our organization grow in innovative and revolutionary ways is what clearly illustrates the power of FAEA, hence the power of ART. Please reach out and become part of the transformative path of new leaders in the state. Begin this engagement with the Youth Art Month (YAM) Flag Competition. The winning state flag will go on display at the National Art Education Association Annual Convention in Minneapolis, MN, from March 26-28. Spend some time together as a state team on Friday night; please email if you plan to attend and I will form the invite list. This will be another professional learning opportunity for us to share while rejoicing and refreshing new connections with artists and educators around North America. More opportunities to collaborate are being designed for the summer’s PD experiences. On the horizon is a comprehensive Master Series Workshop at Harn Museum; ArtLabs, our one-day intensive hands-on workshops; and the inaugural President’s Leadership Retreat at Ringling College of Art and Design. Keep informed with our social media, Fresh Paint publications, website, and emails as we provide a rigorous and engaging summer filled with enriching experiences. Begin planning your creative excursions with us, and pay it forward by submitting student artworks into the K-12 Student Art Assessment and Virtual Exhibition. Encouraging students to become active leaders in the visual arts begins here, with this comprehensive assessment and exhibition. More information can be found at: faea.org/ programs/student-exhibitions. Paving the path with FAEA and establishing new connections, relationships, and finding time to be as creative as possible is part of our mission. Thanks to the management team at The Center for Fine Arts Education (CFAE), we can sow many seeds to design programming that enriches our lives and replenishes our souls! May the holiday break open your path to rejuvenation!

Board Consultant ’s Report


Kathleen D. Sanz PhD Board Consultant, FAEA

The Florida Legislative 2020 session begins in January and ends in March. We will carefully be watching all of the education bills to provide feedback to FAEA members and we are in the process of filing the Florida Seal of Fine Arts Legislation. This legislation has been filed in the Senate and we are currently waiting for a companion bill in the House. So what is this legislation and what is the purpose? The Florida Seal of Fine Arts for high school graduates will be established to recognize each high school graduate who has attained a high level of fine arts course work. The purpose of the Florida Seal of Fine Arts is to encourage students to develop high level skills in performing and/or visual arts. The Florida Seal of Fine arts shall be awarded to a high school student who earns a standard high school diploma and who meets the requirements established by the State Board of Education. In establishing the criteria for awarding the Seal, the state board shall include all of the following:

Completion of three (3) year-long or the equivalent of 3 credits of sequential courses in dance, music, theatre, and/or visual arts with a “B” or higher. Completion of an additional full credit is required in the same or a different art form and two fine arts related co-curricular activities. Students must share their talent and industry knowledge by providing at least 20 hours of arts related community service and presenting a capstone presentation on their experience. We will continue to keep you updated online and through member emails about legislation that may impact fine arts specifically and education generally. Stay informed to be the strongest advocate that you can be and have a great and successful year!

Elementary School Division Director

Kristina Latraverse Columbia Elementary School Palm Bay, FL One of my favorite things about this time of year are all the countdowns. There is something magical about counting down the days until Winter Break with my students or counting down the seconds until the new year begins. In the spirit of countdowns, I wanted to leave you with a slightly different (but nonetheless exciting) countdown. Without further ado, here is the Winter Advocacy Countdown (drum roll, please). 10. Place art in shared spaces on your school’s campus. 9. Hang art in your community. 8. Host a school art show (and invite stakeholders and community leaders) 7. Communicate with parents 6. Collaborate with your feeder schools

5. Celebrate the success of your students 4. Contact your representatives and stay informed about upcoming legislation 3. Be a part of decision-making school committees 2. Show the important skills students learn in the arts through their artmaking 1. VOTE In 2018, FAEA members, wrote, signed and mailed nearly 700 postcards to Governor DeSantis requesting that he support the arts and cultural organizations. In 2019 he signed legislature that supported the arts by increasing funding. While there is still room for improvement, our collective actions helped to create change at the state level. By committing to advocate for our art programs, we can make the arts so big that they cannot be ignored. In closing, I wanted to thank each of you for allowing me to serve as the Elementary Division Director. I have enjoyed my time serving the membership of FAEA. I also want to welcome and congratulate Colleen Schmidt as the new Elementary Division Director, I know she will accomplish amazing things on the Board. continued on page 10

Division Director Amiee Sarajian Cypress Bay High School Weston, FL Where will this new decade of 2020 take you and your students? How fitting that the Youth Art Month Flag Competition’s (deadline is January 17th) theme this year is, “Take a Journey Through Art.” What student of ours doesn’t have an imaginative journey to share through their art? Youth Art Month is also coming up in March. The K-12 Student Art Assessment and Exhibition closes March 8th. Rubrics for this competition can be found on the website, and are an excellent resource for comparing with your own classroom rubrics. Inspired by our recent fall conference in Ponte Vedra Beach, I remind you and encourage you to consider presenting your favorite hands-on projects for our Fall Conference 2020. Our conference is only as good as we make it, and personally, I am most pleased with conference when I am able to experience a really cool hands-on workshop for my upper level students and myself. Forums are also a great way to share your expertise with other educators. Your inspiration and passion are what drive our organization! Think about your most successful project, and please share! Proposals will open later this spring. FAEA Summer Workshops are also in the planning, and stay tuned for eBlasts from our new Division Director, Latonya Hicks. Thank you for allowing me to serve you as your Division Director, it’s been a wonderful experience working with the most passionate and driven art educators in the state. So long, and see you soon.

reality. Last, to my division members, thank you for being a part of our division’s building enthusiasm and the great work that we have contributed to FAEA. From the 56 Florida art museums listed with AAM, we currently have members that are affiliated with 12 museums; basically representing 21% of Florida art museums. That’s a respectable representation. Over the past two years, museum division membership has increased 30%. Again, that is a very good gain with continued growth. With active membership that is dedicated to sharing and participating, coupled with FAEA’s low annual membership fee, I believe the potential is exciting! My “transformation and going beyond my form” mirrored our division’s activity. Providing opportunities for our division members continued this transformation and growth. This year’s annual conference offered three forums specifically designed for Museum Division members – docent assessment, supervisor/museum educator roundtable, and NAEA study on K-12 single visits to art museums. The conference also offered an excursion to two Jacksonville museums. Additionally, presentations by Museum Division members at the conference increased 350% over the past two years. I know that completing this work added to your workload. In my opinion, museum division members took on this challenge, swung hard, and hit a grand slam. Your dedication and quality work is recognized and greatly appreciated. I am excited that Miriam Machado will be leading the division for the 2020-2021 term. Miriam directs FIU’s Frost Art Museum educa-

tion department and its programming. She has great ideas and will continue to transform our division beyond its present form with contributions from everyone. Teamwork, with many voices and hands, will continue the growth of FAEA. Wishing you a great 2020 with wonderful educational and creative endeavors!

Happy New Year! As we welcome 2020, there are so many things to look forward to. Each year brings the opportunity to reflect on the past and plan for the future. … Looking back over the year, FAEA’s Summer Programming grew across the state and was a great success, and so was our Annual Conference! This year’s attendance was outstanding, a strong indication of our organization’s health and vibrancy! The Supervisors’ meeting was also well attended; we focused on effective programming and funding. Mabel Morales, Miami/Dade County; Erin Saladino, Hillsborough County; and Christy Garton, Orange County; shared what they have done to garner support for visual arts in their areas. One of the outcomes of this meeting was the desire to come together more often as a group. Please look for more information on this soon! This was an excellent year for both our Student and Member Exhibitions. We still need to work on expanding the participation in the student exhibition; I am hoping that we can do more in 2020 to make this happen. Entries are open until March of 2020! BE REWARDED FOR YOUR PASSION Finally, please welcome Pam Haas our newly elected Division Director! Pam is the Fine and Performing Arts Resource Specialist for Osceola County. I know we will all enjoy working with Pam! Follow the prompt and submit their best work.

Happy New Year, New ME, New YOU, Districts Assembly Members! The time is now; Conference, Scholastic, Winter Break, AND my term as your representative are ending. Hopefully you’ve had a chance to rejuvenate and rest surrounded by the ones and things you love. Now we can turn our focus toward getting our schools involved in the upcoming 2020 K-12 Student Art Assessment and Virtual Exhibition! On that celebratory note, thanks again for making the Districts Assembly reception a wonderful experience. FAEA would like to co-host a summer Professional Development opportunity with YOU for its members. What can your organization share from your county with us, the members of FAEA? Have fun with creatively combining experiences or finding a theme. Does your area have a cool new museum experience? Just have fun and show all of us HOW ART AND LIFE CAN COLLIDE in your area. Sometimes you want to help and you don’t know where to begin; this could be your beginning and way to make a difference. With the new year comes an end to my wonderful two years as your representative. Your new rep will be Chrissy Schebilski, who teaches middle school art (3D and Digital Art and Design) at Heron Creek Middle School in North Port. She has taught Art in Sarasota County for the last fourteen years and has been a board member of the Sarasota Art Education Association the last eight years. Through this position, she is looking forward to helping others to be shining local leaders in their own areas of Florida. With the change of representation will also come our new name: Local Art Education Assembly. Happy New Year and see you around!




Our Retirees Division Meeting was excellently attended. We shared our “new lives” and discussed ways to be more effective as we move forward. We discussed several possibilities about how we could work with new teachers attending Conference. We also recognized our FAEA Retirees Division Awardee Bonnie Bernau, who also will be the new representative for the Retirees Division. There is not enough room to tell you all the things Bonnie has accomplished. She comes to us with a plethora of knowledge that will move our Division forward. She and I have already discussed ways to “change things up”. I am quite confident that Bonnie will make a huge difference during her two-year position on the FAEA Board. I have enjoyed these last two years being in the midst of an amazing group of individuals on the FAEA Board. I leave knowing our Division will be in good hands.

Repoussé Relief:

Fantastic Creatures in Metal


By Linda Marie Robinson

One of the highlights of being an elementary school art teacher is exposing my students to new ideas and techniques and then passing that knowledge on to other art teachers at the FAEA Conference. I’ve been teaching art for 16 years at Michigan Avenue Elementary in Osceola County and have presented at FAEA annually since starting my career. I teach the Repoussé Relief: Fantastic Creatures in Metal lesson as part of a 5th grade sculptural unit that culminates with my students creating a mythical ceramic creature. The inspiration for the unit came


Fresh Paint

Winter 2020

from reading J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast books. Attending hands-on workshops at the conference is a great way to explore new techniques and come up with ideas that can be adjusted to fit your students’ abilities. Bringing back samples of projects is also beneficial for both teachers and students. This year it was nice to see familiar faces that have taken my workshops in past years mixed with some new faces in the room. Everyone was excited to begin creating their repoussé creatures. With my students I begin my unit with a lesson on cross hatching and textures inspired by Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. Having this prior knowledge allows my students to understand how to translate textures into the metalwork. We started just as I do in my classroom, with the participants sketching a simple drawing on newsprint paper which is then traced onto the 36 gauge tooling metal. A trick that I came up with was to use foam sheets for working the metal on. This works just as good as newspaper or cork board but without having storage issues. The students place their metal on the foam sheet and make a tape ‘doughnut’ to keep their sketch from shifting during the tracing process. Once the sketch is attached to their metal, they use a ballpoint pen to trace their sketch. I use the pens because finding a pencil that is dull but not broken in class is next to impossible! Using the pen also makes it easy to make sure the entire design has transferred. Once the transfer is complete, the sketch is removed, and the real fun begins! In order to create a relief design, the metal is flipped over to the back, and a variety of wooden tools can be used in a gentle rubbing fashion. The term Repoussé means ‘pushed’ and therefore creates the ‘pushed out’ or relief design. The key is to rub the surface without rushing the process and creating a tear in the metal. As a piece is worked, the surface will become more dimensional. For designs that are indented into the metal, you flip back over to the front and repeat the process, creating an embossed design.

After giving students time to practice and become accustomed to the process, we begin exploring the designing of their final project. During this time period we view images from the various J. K. Rowling books as well as Eric Carle’s Dragons, Dragons. The students explore a variety of ideas and concepts before they set upon a specific design. Since they have now had time to experiment, they are more aware of how the metal will respond and how much space a specific element may require. After our class discussion and exploration, my students begin their rough draft sketch on newsprint paper and then the process of transferring their final design onto their metal. I give them the option of Goldtone, Coppertone, or Silvertone for their projects, reminding them the overworking the colored side of

the metal may remove some of the color. If you have more funds you can purchase the real metals but in elementary the cost can become prohibitive. Once the metalwork has been completed, I give my students three options. The first option is to leave their project as is before matting. Option two is to paint or sponge on black tempera paint to the entire piece or select areas, allow it to dry for about five minutes, and then gently wipe the raised areas with a soft cloth or paper towels. This method creates a nice contrast and adds extra dimension to the pieces. The third option is a take on encaustic by placing the metal on a layer of newspaper and then resting it on a griddle that is heated on the lowest setting. continued on page 22

Repoussé Relief: Fantastic Creatures in Metal continued from page 21

After about one minute you gently ‘draw’ with minimal pressure on selected areas with a crayon, I use either Prang or Crayola for this step. The crayon begins to melt and seeps into the engraved areas while leaving the relief areas uncolored. This process gives many coloration options and when the metal is removed from the heat and the wax cools it becomes permanent, but there is no risk of the wax cracking. Whichever method my students choose, they always feel successful. During my workshop at FAEA we had a great deal of fun, and the participants came up with some very creative projects! Several worked only on their smaller ‘practice’ piece and saved their larger piece of metal for home to experiment more. It is always my hope that participants in my workshops find at least one thing they can take back to their own students, whether by decreasing or increasing the difficulty of the lessons offered. The sharing of ideas and support are two of the things I love most about attending FAEA! Linda Marie Robinson >>

To Bee or Not to Bee:

Batik & Beyond


By Heather Hagy

Batik is fun, and it is exhausting. Get lots of sleep, bring your largest coffee delivery vessel, take a B vitamin, and ALWAYS bring your sense of humor. That being said, if you are nervous about the molten hot wax thing, I suggest starting with the glue technique. The kids love it either way. The glue technique is also an alternative for students when you need to differentiate instruction. I teach three courses, so my first-year kids (6th graders) use glue, and my 7th- and 8th-graders use wax for the resist in my 2nd- and 3rd-year classes. Below are directions and supply lists for both projects. Kelly King and I taught this at the 67th Annual FAEA Conference at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach. The Artist Teachers made beautiful work, and it was fun to create together. Both of these projects can be taught from Elementary levels to High School, and it doesn’t have to be expensive to facilitate.

GLUE BATIK What You Need: Cotton Fabric, Tulip One-Step Dyes, & Elmer’s Blue Gel Glue, Masking Tape, Construction Paper What are your students going to draw? No matter what you decide, I suggest drawing on paper first and tracing it onto the fabric with pencil. I lead a “Bee” draw along with one of my younger classes. Students could customize the work by deciding what they wanted to be—Bee Awesome, Bee Fierce, Bee Nice, etc. They drew it on paper and then placed the fabric over the drawing and traced it. Tape the paper down, and tape the fabric down to keep frustrations at a minimum. In another class, I handed out a skull print out, and the kids decorated them as sugar skulls and traced them onto the fabric. I handed out laminated pieces of construction paper for kids to put the work on. Everyone gets a bottle of Elmer’s blue glue/gel, and they use it as a writing utensil. Keep the tip in contact with the fabric to get a nice thin bead of glue, and trace all the lines. You need a lot of shelves depending on how many students you are

doing this with, because they need to dry overnight. Kids walk back to the shelves and slide the fabric off the construction paper and onto the shelf. The next day the kids use the Tulip OneStep fabric dyes to paint the batik. (I give them placemats/aka faded construction paper for the fabric to sit on.) The Tulip dyes need to dry overnight to become colorfast. Next class, rinse out the glue, and Ta DAH! Batik.

WAX BATIK What you need: Paintbrushes, Tjanting Tools, fabric, masking tape, newspaper, crockpots, irons, Individual Dyna-Flow Fabric Paints or a Jacquard® Dye-NaFlow Classroom Pack from Nasco, pencils, patience, cups for wax, construction paper, and Soy Wax Flakes,

BEFORE YOU BEGIN, HIDE YOUR NICE PAINTBRUSHES! Do you have a paintbrush graveyard? This can be their final use. Once they are used in wax, that is all they can do— so PLEASE put your beautiful useable paintbrushes in a safe place, behind a locked door.

The Soy Wax you can buy in flakes (at craft stores, or on Amazon) melts faster, at a lower temperature, has less of a smell, and is cheaper than traditional Batik Wax, so save your money, and buy the cheap stuff, it works great. A note on fabric and other supplies: You might be surprised how much you will receive if you ask for old white sheets for batik. I sent out an email to families asking for white sheets—because Dyna Flow Dyes work with natural and synthetic fibers, so it is okay if the sheets are a blend of cotton, polyester bamboo, or whatever. We did this project with 400 students, and I still have plenty to do this next year. I also suggest going to your local thrift shops for crock pots and irons if you need them. continued on page 30

Batik & Beyond continued from page 29

Draw the image, trace it on the fabric with pencil. More advanced kids could do layers of wax, but we only use wax once and then paint the next day. (This also keeps paintbrushes meant for paint away from paintbrushes intended for wax.) VENTILATE your room! The wax has a distinct artsy smell. When Kelly and I were both using wax all day, our entire hall smelled like molten hot lava wax. Also make sure you have time to warm up your wax, it can take about 30 minutes and keep your eyes and ears on it. If it gets too hot, it could catch on fire (it never did for us), but I had nightmares that I forgot to unplug my crockpots, so ALWAYS unplug your crockpots at the end of the day. CLICK HERE My other half Art TeachShameless YouTube Channel plug: er, Kelly King, is the technolAmazing SMArt Teachers ogy queen, so she made our instructional video. This is helpful, so that you can have a visual of the process. Draw the image with pencil on the fabric. The next step is to tape fabric onto laminated construction paper. Use wax anywhere you want white or where you want to show definition. To apply the wax, most of my students preferred using a paintbrush, but in our workshop, the teachers really liked the Tjantings. I suggest having them both as an option. The fabric

paint is like water and will travel on the fabric. Using the wax to keep paint from running away is also a good idea. Apply the wax with a paintbrush or Tjanting tool. The wax needs to penetrate the fabric to work as a resist—if it is too cool, it sits on top of the fabric, and the process won’t work. The next step is to paint. Dyna Flow paints are AMAZING. They mix beautifully and work like water colors. If you want the colors to be softer, add water. When everything is dry, sandwich the fabric between newspaper and iron the wax out. Ideally, you want to allow the wax and the paint to dry completely between stages. When you iron the wax out, the heat makes the dye colorfast, so you can safely wash the batik in the laundry. (Colorfast means dyed-in colors that will not fade or be washed out.) I hope this article and our video give you the confidence to try batik. Using exciting products and tools in the art room gets kids excited about art, and isn’t that what we are going for here?

Precepts Pennants Lesson Plan for Grades 3–10

If words of wisdom are worth remembering, they’re worth sharing. Often thought of as “words to live by,” a precept can be inspired by a poem, song lyrics — even a fortune cookie saying! This project encourages students to pick a precept, then create and decorate a pennant that inspires others. Create a string of banners for a powerful visual collaboration!

The Dalí Museum


The Dalí Museum, in downtown St. Petersburg, is home to an unparalleled collection of over 2,400 Salvador Dalí works, including nearly 300 oil paintings, watercolors and drawings as well as more than 2,100 prints, photographs, posters, textiles, sculptures, and objets d’art. This compendium of Dalí‘s work is one of the most acclaimed collections of a single modern artist in the world, with artwork representing every moment and medium of his creative life. The Museum’s nonprofit mission, to care for and share its collection locally and internationally, is grounded by a commitment to education and sustained by a culture of philanthropy. In addition to the extensive permanent collection of Dalí works, the Museum showcases frequent special exhibitions curated from top worldwide collections. Museum and community programming include films, lectures, performances, social events, and more for both adults and families. The Museum continued on page 34

serves as an active resource in the cultural life of its community and the world at large. Approximately 10,000 local students tour the Museum annually at free or discounted rates. The Museum’s Education Department develops educator resources materials and programming that connect visitors with The Dalí’s permanent collection and their special exhibitions. Resources include:

Art Mobile: Under the auspices of the Pinellas County School Board, The Dalí on the ‘Fly’ Art Mobile will visit all Pinellas County elementary schools between 2016-2020, being seen by over 45,000 K-5th graders, with their art teachers as guides.

PHOTOS: ©2019 – Salvador Dalí Museum, Inc., St. Petersburg, FL.

Education Videos: Short films to enhance the teaching and learning of Surrealist art. Student Exhibits: Displaying middle and high school 2D student artwork, exhibitions provide an opportunity for students to have their work displayed in a museum setting. Guided Tours: School groups can schedule tours of the Museum’s collections and temporary exhibitions.

Two programs of interest to art educators: Teen Voices This free semester-long program empowers high school students (grades 9-12) to become interpreters of the world and works of Salvador Dalí. With the help of guest-speakers and Museum staff, students attend hands-on workshops to research, write, and record new content with the goal of creating a “for-teensby-teens” audio tour. In addition to the art and fun, the Teen Voices program builds self-esteem, enhancing the speaking and writing skills of participants, and providing opportunities to verbalize personal choices. Teen Voices consists of 16 meetings held on Sunday afternoons. It is administered by Dalí Museum education staff and Pinellas County AP Art History teacher John Stewart. Guest speakers include playwright and audio producer Sheila Cowley and writer and sound designer Matt Cowley.

School Education Manager Denisse De Leon plans and implements this program. One of her participants revealed, “This program was a unique opportunity to learn about careers in art and to learn about art itself. I had the chance to talk to other teens from around the Tampa Bay area about their relative interests in art, and I got a chance to write, record, and work with some very great people at The Dali Museum. I would encourage any high schoolers interested in art to join the program; they won’t regret it.”

Student Surrealist Art Exhibit Initiated in 1985, this 2D annual art competition and exhibit presents work by middle and high school students who explore ideas and visions similar to those explored by Salvador Dalí and other surrealists. Each year there is a different theme that the students explore, the 2020 theme being “Irrational Technology.” Over time, the program has grown into three separate exhibits – one for Pinellas County, one for Hillsborough County, and most recently one for students from across the state of Florida. The Museum recognizes the remarkable role that art teachers play in their students’ development. Curator of Education Peter Tush explains, “In 2018, we produced three videos to help teachers incorporate the competition and exhibition into their curriculum. This has led to an increase in the number of submissions and a higher quality of artwork submitted. We are excited to see the students’ work each year, because it never ceases to surprise and dazzle our visitors and community.” The program is unique because it prioritizes the students’ imagination and encourages unexpected connections. As Salvador Dali stated, “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.” As deadlines are approaching in 2020, consider this opportunity for your students and have no fear! This museum treasure is in our backyard and a veritable treat to visit – in person or virtually. Don’t miss out on its amazing offerings!

At the turn of the 21st century, it became apparent to the network of art educators across the state that the Florida Art Education Association (FAEA), their beloved professional organization, was fast losing a record of its history. A major effort was undertaken to review and compile existing documents, publications, and photographs. This is the next installment of an ongoing series.
