President’s Message  

Sidney Allen

I

just got back from Western Region this year held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It is always a great time, and one where states connect with each other to share information and concerns. This year was a leadership year where we spent the first day in sessions geared to increase our knowledge in specialized fields such as advocacy, grants, community, and organizational vibrancy. The delegates meetings begin the second day where we work on the details of NAEA position statements in the areas of students, art educators, curriculum, assessment, instruction, and relationships. I am including the link to the Western Region web-site which includes a power point on the position statements discussed and the state reports. I hope you take a look and see exactly what goes on at a delegates meeting. There is also a second PowerPoint with state reports (including ours), I think is always interesting to see what our neighbors are doing. (https://naea.digication.com/westernregion/ Summer_Leadership_and_Forum_2013) I also stopped in at St Mary’s of the Woods Art retreat for one day to see the beautiful work done by our members. They had 31 members this year. Check out some of the pictures our Facebook page. This is an event you do not want to miss. St. Mary’s of the Woods is a beautiful place with a serene atmosphere where you spend four days of intensive workshops. It is an art teachers dream, so mark your calendars for mid-July next year. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Fall Convention this year. It is a whole month earlier, October 1820, at the Marriott East, in Indianapolis. We have an action packed event planned for you this year with keynotes, Olivia Gude (artist and educator, University of Illinois, Chicago), Jessica Balsey (Art of Education on line website), and Jesús Moroles ( keynote at NAEA in Dallas Fort worth , Texas) a granite sculptor. I hope to see everyone there. “You are never lost when you are with friends” Dennis Inhulsen, President, National Art Education Association

heck Us Out!

Welcome back! I hope everyone has had a relaxing summer break and you are feeling refreshed and ready for the challenges of the year ahead. As you begin this school year, please take a moment to “check out” the wonderful opportunities and support that AEAI has to offer. ·

The AEAI website will continue to provide you with up-to-date information and great teaching resources.

·

Plans are well underway for what looks like a fantastic convention. You really don’t want to miss it! You will find information about the upcoming AEAI Convention, October 18-20.

·

I also would like to invite you to become more active in your regions, and if you are interested, at the state level this year. AEAI needs your participation and support so that we can continue to represent you.

It goes without saying that this year will continue to be challenging as some of us face the effects of decisions that have been made about education. With that in mind, it is more important than ever to be actively engaged in the promotion of the arts. It is vital that you take advantage of opportunities to showcase your students’ accomplishments. Make this year “the year of ADVOCACY for Visual Art Education. Make this the year that you attend the convention in October, attend a workshop in your region, plan a celebration of Youth Art Month, or participate in the YAM Statehouse Celebration. I believe you will find that you have a community of like-minded, passionate individuals who are willing to support and collaborate with you. We need all of you to help with our mission of ensuring quality visual art education across Indiana. It takes vigilance and dedication and we can’t do it without all of you. I wish each of you a great 2013-2014 school year.

Editor’s Message  

Jane Lohmeyer

W

here has summer gone! Fall is fast approaching and with it the new school year. This year promises to be an interesting one while we wait to see what “innovations” the Indiana legislature and DOE decide to implement next. Also of concern is how they will those school corporations struggling financially, maintain quality education, which means including the arts. It is important that we all remain vigilant and educated about changes proposed and pending, and let our voices be heard. Your membership in your state organization is critical to keeping the necessity and importance of art education in the forefront. Our Advocacy efforts along with the voices of our membership make a difference. If you are not already a member of AEAI or if your membership has lapsed, PLEASE sign up today! There is strength in numbers, and the benefits offered can not be quantified. If cost is a deterrent, consider this:  Membership cost is @ $3.08 per pay check (less than 1 gallon of gas every two weeks)  Membership cost equals @ 16 fancy Starbucks drinks (that only leave you with extra calories) Get involved! District leadership, county liaisons, Division representatives, Contact contributors and Convention volunteers are always needed and appreciated. Being on the AEAI Board and/or being an officer can enhance your professional knowledge and growth beyond your imagination. Don’t forget, it’s time to start making your plans for convention!

Professional Growth  Points  Available  at  Convention If  you  wish  to  receive  the  Professional  Growth  Points  (PGP)  for  your  license  renewal,  certificates  will   be  available  upon  request.

Youth Art  Month  2014

W

Allie Staub  &  Mindy  Stephenson  

hat is Youth Art Month?

YAM is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school art programs. YAM is visibly celebrated all over the state of Indiana. As art educators we relish the opportunity to bring the visual arts into the foreground of our schools and local communities. Last March, our Statehouse Exhibit Celebration was a complete success! Over 300 students from more than 50 schools all over the state had works of art on display in Indianapolis. At the exhibition opening reception State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Glenda Ritz, was the Honorary Chairperson of Youth Art Month. There were more than 1000 people in attendance! Students and their families enjoyed the reception, musical performances, and refreshments while viewing the displayed artwork. Each student that participated also received their own medal! We are excited to see this event grow even more in 2014! Participating is Easy! As an AEAI member, you and your students are encouraged to participate in YAM as a strong advocacy tool for your program! The first way you and your students can get involved is to submit flag designs for the Indiana Flag Design Competition. At this year’s state convention, please stop by the YAM area for information and to vote for the best flag design. Also please visit our website (www.yamindiana.weebly.com) to find out how your students can have artwork displayed at the Indiana State House and participate in the Youth Art Month Celebration in March.

Local Chair  Welcome

Mary Sorrels

reetings From Your Local Chair!

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming 2013 AEAI convention on October 18th-20th at the Marriott East in Indianapolis. This year's theme is entitled "Unlocking Potential". Our workshops will provide you with lots of new and innovating ideas to unlock your students potential and our dynamic keynote speakers will highlight ways in which you can unlock your own potential as an art educator. We encourage you to attend and register as early as possible! Friday is packed with hands-on workshops that will be hosted, off site, by Amaco, the Children's Museum, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Indiana State Museum. Saturday and Sunday will be chocked full of many new and exciting workshops and keynote speakers including Olivia Gude, Jessica Balsey, and Jesús Moroles. Our opening reception will have the museum resource exchange where participating museums will have "goodies" and additional items for you to take back to your classrooms. Once again, the Artisans Gallery will be open at this year's convention with handcrafted items for you to purchase. We are also looking for any handcrafted jewelry donations to place in our silent auction. If any of you have anything that you would like to donate to help our organization, please email me at msorrells@fccsc.k12.in.us. I want to thank all those that donated a piece of jewelry from last year's convention as your bids and support enables our organization to continue to host this state-wide event. I encourage you to attend this phenomenal professional event of Art Educators! Please join us!!

Convention Coordinator  Welcome

Jill Sayers

onvention is when??? Yes that’s right this years Convention is October 18th – 20th!!!

It is quickly approaching and I can’t wait for you to see our newest venue. The Marriott East was remodeled recently and the changes are amazing. It is almost decadent! We all have busy schedules and trying to find time to fit just one more thing in can be difficult, especially when having to plan for someone else to teach your classes. That is the wonderful thing about having Convention on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday – no sub plans necessary. So be sure to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity! I am very excited about this year’s presenters Olivia Gude, Jessica Balsley, and Jesús Moroles, their ideas, and even workshops, all seem to examine how we can use art education to change a student’s stance on school and connect to the community. Olivia Gude came highly recommended by a couple of members. She will be talking about how we can use the art curriculum to embody the very heart of the art educational experience for the student, for the school, and for the community and how that translates to practical approaches in education. Jessica Balsley, from the Art of Education, will talk about “Ridiculously Relevant” ways we can empower ourselves as Art Educators, create a community of Art Educators, use assessments, and create a standards base curriculum. Art Educators from Illinois raved about her when she attended their convention. Jesús Moroles is a sculptor out of Texas who looks for ways to integrate his work into the surrounding area. He will be talking about how we can make a difference with Art Education and getting students hooked on education. As for the rest of Convention -there are over 60 sessions for you to attend, 18 PGP hours, in addition to the Artisan Gallery and the Museum Resource Exchange that will take place during the opening reception. There is a little something for everyone and you’re sure to go home with lots of great ideas and resources. Once again we will be offering the LiveBinder with resources for attendees only. The awards dinner “Hidden Treasures” will highlight some of Indiana’s treasured art teachers, administrator, and others. With the music styling’s of Untamed which is the same band as we had last year to finish off the evening. Oh, and you don’t want to miss out on the jewelry silent auction this year. It was such a hit that we decided to try it again, so please consider donating a piece. I know I always find it exhilarating to be around this many of “my people”, people who understand me and what I do. So come and unlock not only your students potential, but also yours as a phenomenal art teacher with connections throughout the state! Artfully Yours, Jill Sayers

Jewelry Silent Auction Last years silent auction was such a hit that we decided to repeat it this year!!! Please consider donating a piece of jewelry for the silent auction. Funds from the auction help to offset some of the Convention’s costs. Turn in jewelry at the registration table when you arrive. The auction will close at 9 pm on Saturday, October 19th. Please let Jill Sayers know if you plan on donating and/or send questions to district1art@gmail.com Fall 2013

Olivia Gude - Evocative and Provocative Pedagogy: Bricolage Curriculum - Imagine a form of art education that is itself a new art form in which sites of school or community-based art education are collaborative art projects, ongoing experiments in relational aesthetics and social practice artmaking. Quality contemporary art education calls for the expansion of idioms of experiencing, expressing and responding. Olivia Gude, Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, awarded the National Art Education Association’s 2009 Viktor Lowenfeld Award for significant contributions to the field of art education. Professor Gude is the Founding Director of the Spiral Workshop, a curriculum research project that provides art classes for urban teens. Her current research focuses on identifying new paradigms for structuring visual art curriculum, including the articles, Postmodern Principles: In Search of a 21st Century Art Education, Principles of Possibility: Considerations for a 21st Century Art and Culture Curriculum, and New School Art Styles: the Project of Art Education. Gude, a public artist who has created over 50 mural and mosaic projects, often working with intergenerational groups, teens, elders, and children, has received many grants, commissions, and awards, including two National Endowment for the Arts grants to create public artworks, an Arts Midwest Regional Fellowship in Painting, and a State of Illinois Fellowship for Outstanding Achievement in the Visual Arts. She is a Senior Artist of the Chicago Public Art Group and the editor of CPAG’s on-line Community Public Art Guide: Making Murals, Mosaics, Sculptures, and Spaces. www.cpag.net Her writing on community-based public art includes “Innovators and Elders, Painting in the Streets,” a chapter in Cultural Activisms: Poetic Voices, Political Voices and the book Urban Art Chicago: a Guide to Community Murals, Mosaics, and Sculptures (written with Jeff Huebner). Olivia Gude frequently presents lectures and workshops on transforming art education, introducing contemporary art to students and adults, community art practices, and on her work as a collaborative public artist. Gude works with art teachers to foster the collaborative creation of new curriculum models in urban and suburban school districts. Fall 2013

Jesús Moroles lives and works in Texas, at his studio in Rockport. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Texas, Denton, in 1978 and apprenticed under Luis Jiménez for one year immediately after his graduation. Critical recognition for Moroles came quickly. His most visible public sculpture is “Lapstrake” 1987, a massive 22 feet tall, 64-ton work located across from the Museum of Art in New York. Moroles has received significant national attention with his inclusion in the landmark exhibition, “Contemporary Hispanic Art in the United States,” which was shown at major American museums. His largest scale single work is the “Houston Police Officers Memorial,” dedicated in November 1992. The memorial is comprised of a granite and earth rising stepped pyramid surrounded by four equal inverted stepped pyramids excavated from the ground. Moroles has more than 2,000 works in place in China, Egypt, France, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, and the United States, in museum, corporate, public and private collections. His most recent distinguished awards include the recipient of the Three Dimensional Texas State Artist Award 2011, the recipient of the 2007 Award for Visual Arts by the Texas Medal of Arts Awards Committee and also recipient of the 2008 National Medal of Arts which is the highest award given to artists by the United States government.

June 22,  2013 Dear  School  Administrator,      In  the  spring,  school  administrators  across  Indiana  began  to  formulate  budgets  for  the  2013-2014  school   year.    We  are  acutely  aware  that  this  was  a  particularly  difficult  task  due  to  the  reduction  in  school  funding.     We  hope  however  that  you  made  every  to  include  funding  for  professional  development  for  your  teachers  in   your  budget.    As  you  are  surely  aware,  the  children  of  today  are  far  different  than  those  of  yesteryear.    If  they   are  to  succeed,  teachers  need  opportunities  to  learn  vital,  new  teaching  strategies  and  methods  that  can  better   prepare  their  students  for  the  21st  Century.      One  professional  development  opportunity  that  is  especially  important  to  art  teachers  here  in  Indiana  is  the   annual  AEAI  Fall  Convention,  which  will  occur  in  Indianapolis  October  18th  -  20th.  Numerous  professional   presentations  and  workshops  will  be  offered;;  devoted  to  helping  art  educators  learn  how  to  engage  their  stu-­ dents  with  meaningful  and  relevant  learning.    Our  keynote  speakers:  Jesús  Moroles  will  be  discussing   "Making  a  difference  thru  Art  Education"  and  how  there  is  a  way  to  connect  thru  art  education;;  getting  stu-­ dents  hooked  on  education. Jessica  Balsley  will  be  talking  with  art  educators  about  how  to  utilize  assessment,   create  standards  based  learning,  create  a  PLN  (professional  learning  network),  and  finally  how  to  empower  the   art  educator.    Or  final  keynote  is  Olivia  Gude  who  will  be  discussing  with  teachers  how  can  use  student  collab-­ oration  to  hone  the  21st  century  skills  and  connect  to  students. We  are  very  excited  that  these  authorities  on   learning  will  be  addressing  our  attendees.  AEAI,  the  largest  professional  organization  for  art  teachers  in  Indi-­ ana,  routinely  provides  significant  development  opportunities  for  teachers  throughout  the  year  and  this  Fall   Convention  is  no  exception.      Thank  you  for  supporting  Indiana  teachers.    We  look  forward  to  seeing  the  art  teachers  in  your  corporation   join  with  us  at  this  year’s  Fall  Convention  and  at  other  professional  development  opportunities  where  we  share   the  goal  of  successfully  educating  and  preparing  Indiana’s  youth  to  be  successful.

Creating a  Public  Art  Sculpture:

Brenda Wampler

Edgewood Intermediate  School “I  think  the  project  became,  through  its  many  challenges,  a  legacy  project  for  us,  a  way  to  share  the  power  of  the  visual   arts,  to  communicate  in  a  bold  and  permanent  way  and  to  speak  of  the  value/importance  of  the  educational  process.”  

W

e know that being open to possibilities can lead to incredible adventures. Over a period of three years, students at Edgewood Intermediate School (near Bloomington, IN) gained a special awareness of public art. It began with identification, and developed into a creative collaboration. Together with the school community, they have seen the installation of a 21-foot sculpture. I was the art teacher. The adventure was ours.

work?” Administrative support was activated and grant writing began. In the fall of 2010, with a planning grant stipulating the corporation’s mission statement as a guide, the school community engaged in brainstorming. Students in 3rd-5th grade classes critically examined the mission, public art sculpture, and meaning as they drew interpretive images. Ideas were shared, discussed and synthesized, with a final plan rendered and accepted. Completed pattern Working  on  patterns  at  Art  Nights

In 2010, inspired by a friend, I modified a unit about Alexander Calder (and his “Peau Rouge” at IU) to include new public art in the Ellettsville/Bloomington community. Third grade students were introduced to “public art”, discussed ideas & issues, then created and shared their own maquettes in wire sculpture and poster board. They tested their knowledge, playing “JeopArty”. Classroom teachers took them on a community field trip to Bloomington. The thought returned, “Why not create our own


The tree symbolizes: Edgewood itself, learning, and life. An eagle high in a nest represents a national symbol, school mascot, and each child in the community. The three figures watching the fledgling eaglet are symbolic of the joint responsibilities of parents, teachers, and community members who have, are, and will continue to nurture the development of our children. The “lifelines” of good character are cut into the roots of the tree while the trunk and canopy are emblazoned with oak leaves and symbols of learning. Milled blocks from Bybee Stone Co. mark the four cardinal directions, grounding us to our history, while a stone bench is placed for contemplation. Pathways allow for the exploratory movement of people, and passage to and from our school campus. In the summer of 2011, Gerry Masse’s Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum crew began a collaboration to interpret the design in CAD and build the structural steel components. The sculpture and site development would be paid for through grants, fundraising, and donations of materials, and labor. Students and families were involved. It was a busy, stressful, but exciting time. In May of 2012, the school community created bas-­-­‐relief panels to enrich the sculptural tree. During the summer, everyone was invited to visit Sculpture Trails to see sculptures along the trails, meet working artists, and observe the process of molding and casting the original panels.

Application of  black  Waxoyl  begins  with  castings on   the  trunk

The Monroe County Fall Festival provided a venue for new community contacts. Donations, large and small were received; and site development began. The town street and utilities departments excavated the site. Donations of the aggregate base, and hauling were secured. Parents in concrete professions provided donations of concrete and all finishing. The community was activated.

In late fall, with their CAD drawing used by steel suppliers to plasma -cut the pieces ready for fabrication, Sculpture Trails produced the steel sculpture. The initial installation of the sculpture occurred on November 10, 2012. In December, with concrete work complete, the donated limestone cubes and a carved bench arrived from Bybee Stone Co. Lighting supplies were purchased and a local electric company donated time to trench, install wiring, and lights. The Trails crew returned in April to attach the castings to the trunk of the tree and into the canopy. A metal sealant/finish, “waxoyl” was applied. Landscaping followed with support from Scouts and active members of our team. Students met at the site for guided “looking at and talking about” sessions. Our “Celebration of Completion” was held on May 29, 2013 to recognize grantors, collaborating partners, supporters, and students. The sculpture is now a landmark, holding memories and sharing its meaning with visitors. It is a permanent celebration of the mission statement, the community building process, and the power of the visual arts to integrate ideas and to become a learning tool. (A curricular unit in ebook form connects the problem-solving aspects of the sculpture’s planning and construction processes to practical STEAM problems.)

s I visit museums and teacher programs around the state to learn more about your interests and needs, I feel fortunate to have such a strong art education and museum community in Indiana. In May I was able to attend the Art Meets Science program organized by the American Institute for Conservation K-12 Outreach Committee led by Sarah Barack and Beth Edelstein and coordinated by Jessica Watson, AEAI Elementary Division Rep, and hosted by Heidi Davis-Soylu, Manager of Academic Engagement and Learning Research, at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Hearing from teachers about what they planned to do with the information was very valuable. Read more and see the pictures about the program’s potential for helping museums and schools use the core ideas of conservation to teach art and science. In the last few months, I was also able to visit the Fort Wayne Museum of Art to see the “Afros” exhibition, the Indianapolis Museum of Art for Final Friday and the Ai Weiwei exhibition, and go to the Indian Market and Festival at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art. Each one of these excellent museums provided me a chance to enjoy time with my family, friends, and colleagues, meet fellow museum educators, and grow as a museum educator. See the Convention News, NAEA News, Member News, and Museum News listings below. We have been doing a lot for art all over the state, and for you, fellow AEAI members, so tell us what you think! I hope to have an opportunity to meet other art education and museum professionals from around the state at our convention and visit your museum too. Please contact me and tell me about your programs, and consider being a featured member like Craig Martin of the Purdue University Galleries. And if there is something you would like members to see and know about your museum, please share your news too. Keep up the great work, one and all!

The Gardner Heist

By Ulrich Boser (2011)

Shortly after midnight on March 18, 1990, two men broke into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and committed the largest art heist in history. They stole a dozen masterpieces, including one Vermeer, three Rembrandts, and five Degas. But after thousands of leads—and a $5 million reward—none of the paintings have been recovered. Worth as much as $500 million, the missing masterpieces have become one of the nation's most extraordinary unsolved mysteries.

A Community Day is planned for Sunday, September 29, at 1:30 p.m. A teacher community event will be Thursday, October 17, 2013, in the evening. See www.bsu.edu/artmuseum for details. Exhibition News

BFSD (Big Fat Scary Deal), a national exhibition of contemporary art dedicated to the edgy, weird, unsettling and

scary, produced by oddly creative individuals will be presented in the Robert L. Ringel Gallery in the Stewart Center by Purdue University Galleries (West Lafayette, Indiana) from October 21 through December 8, 2013. Purdue University Galleries has two installation exhibitions too—Amanda Small: “All Truths Wait in All Things” in the Robert L. Ringel Gallery in Stewart Center; and Crystal Wagner: “Gaia Milieu” in the Fountain Gallery in downtown Lafayette.

Anders Ruhwald: One thing follows the other (and you make it happen) , is an innovative exhibition and program

co-organized by the Marilyn K. Glick Center for Glass and the David Owsley Museum of Art features an installation by Anders Ruhwald, Head of the Ceramics Department at Michigan's Cranbrook Academy of Art. It explores form, process, and materiality through an installation that compares and contrasts one design rendered in three diverse media: ceramics, wood, and glass. Particularly noteworthy is that the glass sculpture were fabricated by Glick Center faculty and students in conjunction with Ruhwald. The exhibition runs Friday, September 27, through Sunday January 5, 2014. Ball State  photographer   Michael  Hickey  captures   the  most  recent  work  of   glassblowers  at  the  Marilyn   K.  Glick  Center  for  Glass.   These  black  glass  volumes   are  components  of  a  work   of  art  by  Danish  ar st  An-­‐ ders  Ruhwald  that  will  be   in  a  forthcoming  exhibi on   at  the  David  Owsley  Muse-­‐ um  of  Art,  Ball  State  Uni-­‐ versity,  Muncie,  Indiana.

Featured Museum Member: Purdue Galleries Craig Martin says, “Purdue Galleries works to create an atmosphere where artwork can be enjoyed and participated in, as opposed to simply being viewed. At a time when arts activities in schools and field trips to cultural organizations are being curtailed, I find encouragement in the bold perseverance of our art teacher friends—and I take heart in the recognition that our children just won’t allow art to dissipate from their lives. “Each time we present an ArtCart activity for a classroom, the students’ honest, unsheltered pride in their accomplishments easily overrides any detachment or concern of the day. It has been through the encouragement and the caring eyes of the teachers with whom we partner that I have become so keenly aware of the impact of the arts on young lives, and I need to constantly offer them my thanks for what they do.” Purdue Galleries has just opened a new gallery in downtown Lafayette. Located directly across the street from the courthouse square fountain, the Fountain Gallery represents the university’s efforts to reach across the Wabash River and contribute to the cultural life of the Lafayette community. The Galleries intent is to host displays of art there in a variety of contemporary forms and to engage a new audience. Artwork from regional, national, and international artists, as well as the Galleries permanent collection, will be featured. Visitors will be invited to learn, to seek out, to create and participate, and to reflect on art as a unique personal experience.

What evidence do we need to advocate for the value of museum education within our institutions and communities and, more broadly, with regional, state, and national policymakers and funders? To help answer this question, the NAEA Museum Education Division Research Initiative and Research Commission, specifically Anne Manning, Museum Education Division Director; Jackie Terrassa, Museum Education Division Director-Elect; and Randi Korn, NAEA Research Commissioner updated members about their progress at the 2013 annual meeting in Seattle. The commission began the project in 2010. The strategic questions is: What is the public value of art museums? Art museums’ distinct characteristics: museums’ most distinct characteristic are their collections and exhibitions. In their presentation they said they hope to explore the value of people engaging directly with original works of art within the context of museums as learning institutions. The result of the 2011 Pre-convention Data Collection was teachers broaden their teaching practice, use artfocused resources to support their classroom resources, and pursue personal learning with other teachers. The 2012 Data Collection said: Teachers most value · · · · · ·

Encounters with original works of art renew and inspire art educators— intellectually, spiritually, individually, and professionally. Art museums provide teachers with valuable resources that deepen their own learning and enhance their teaching. Art educators see museums and their collections as an integral part of a balanced education, enhancing students’ academic learning in individual growth.

Teachers prefer to use art museums as follows: · ·

Teachers see art museums as one part of a larger art scene, not as the only option for their students to access original works of art. They seek to expose their students to the various ways that art is made, presented, and distributed. Teachers prefer to personalize museum visits for their students, creating their own lesson plans and activities, rather than sign up for a docent-led tour.

Teachers are critical of these aspects: · ·

Teachers perceive many obstacles to student visits to the museum including cost, quality of experience, feelings of intimidation, logistical challenges (paperwork, buses, release time). Teachers who visit museums with their students are critical of docents’ teaching skills and attitudes towards students

Is this your view too? As noted, join the conversation—please share your feedback with the Museum Education Division Representative and we will discuss them more at the Museum Education Division business meeting at this year’s AEAI convention.

H

appy New Year!!! Yes, we realize it isn’t January 1st, but it is the beginning of a new school year. As with the beginning of each calendar year we don’t know what the future brings, but we do know that there will be lots of things happening – both good and challenging. Well, the school year is no different, but know that we are here to support you. So to start this year off right, we would like to invite you to join us and “Pamper Yourself” with a night of manicures and pedicures at US Nails in Crown Point. This event will take place on August 16th at 7 pm. Please RSVP to district1art@gmail.com by August 14 th so that we let them know how many to expect. Also to add to the celebrations, we would like to congratulate to the Amy Back and Ginger Boys for winning Lilly Teacher Creativity grants!! They have spent six weeks traveling this summer and following their dreams. We know that we can’t wait to see and hear about their wonderful adventures. Amy from Oak Hill Elementary, in Lowell, traveled to Kenya and Zanzibar to study the language, art, food and culture of those communities. Her grant was titled-“Jambo Is All I Know Ginger from Boone Grove High School, in Boone Groove, studied Hudson River Valley artists; engage in studio workshops and outdoor classroom experiences. Her grant was titled “Embracing the Aesthetics of the Hudson River School”. We would also like to take this time to highlight the exciting work of one of our fellow District 1 Art teachers, Monica Korzenecki, who created a program known as “Art Lenders”. Finally, if there is any way that we can be of service to you, please let us know. We hope to see you at Convention during our District 1 workshop on Saturday, October 19th, at the Marriott East in Indianapolis.

Examples of Student art in the 2013 Art Lenders Auction

Art Lenders is a program created by two Hammond Elementary Art Teachers, Joan Buvala and Monica Korzenecki. It began as a grant that was written in December 2009. In April 2010, we got word that we received the grant and that we had to complete it by the end of the school year! Since we didn’t want to lose the grant money, we decided to take the challenge of pulling it all together in a matter of 5 weeks! This in itself was a huge task since it involved not only the art teachers in Hammond, but all of the local businesses as well!

Art Lenders gives businesses a chance to bid on creative artwork during the Art Lenders Reception/Auction featuring children’s art throughout the city of Hammond. The businesses do not buy the artwork; they simply rent it for a period of one year. During that time, they display the artwork along with a photo of the student artist and some information about the artist and the Art Lenders program. The variety and quality of work created by these talented young artists is amazing, so why not mat and frame them and display them throughout the community. From whimsical water colors to fine pencil portraits and landscapes, the student art brightens the lobbies, check outs, hallways, and office spaces in the businesses in our community. The purpose of Art Lenders is to promote art education throughout the community. All proceeds from the auction go towards funding programs to enhance art education in the School City of Hammond. One of these programs created for this purpose is Enviro Art, which is a one day workshop for students. Our first Enviro Art workshop took place in April 2013. We took four 5 th grade students from each of the 14 elementary schools in Hammond to the Environmental Education Center in Hammond for a day filled with art! The students rotated between three different workshops where they learned about and created their own botanical art, Gyotaku, Japanese Fish Prints and “Shrinky Dink” flowers made from water bottles. Enviro Art was a huge success! We are already working on some new ideas for next year’s workshops! As art educators, we know that the development, academic success and self esteem of children are supported with the creative opportunities provided by the arts. We want Art Lenders to ensure our young artists will have a memorable opportunity to display their talents to friends family and our community.

reetings from Northeast Indiana! We all have such busy lives sometimes it’s hard to know whether we’re coming or going, but District 2 folks carved out some special time this summer. In June we had a watercolor workshop with artist Linda Binek. Linda shared methods for creating textures as a background for further painting, and it was exciting to see what happened with all the ‘stuff’ we pressed into the paint. We’re looking forward to seeing these techniques explored in our classrooms this fall. A big thank-you to Artlink for supporting District 2 art educators; we were able to use their studio space for the day. What a wonderful environment for our workshop! District 2 was represented at AEAI Art Teacher Retreat this summer, too, as several of us trekked to the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College and indulged in our own art making. We devote so much creative energy to our career it’s often a challenge to just switch gears. St. Mary’s was a time to get back to what called us to this profession in the first place. Looking forward, we’re planning a dinner meeting mid-September, coordinating it with the FAME general meeting. In addition to food and fellowship we’ll have a resource/book exchange. Many of us have duplicate resources; bring something you’d like to exchange…or just pass on. Every art teacher, member or not, is welcome to join us. October brings the AEAI Convention in Indy. Take a look at what’s planned for the weekend and join us. It’s a great way to meet professional peers and gather some new ideas. We look forward to seeing many of you there. Last, but not least: March may seem a long way off, but begin saving those great projects for Youth Art Month. In February we will meet to collect District 2 work and deliver it for the show. Whether you participate in Scholastics, or FAME, or a local exhibit, keeping student work in the public eye is important, and YAM is a way to showcase what we do. Please contact us with any comments or suggestions for the coming year. Let us know, too, of any special accomplishments, exhibits, or events you’d like to share. Deena: deenak2u@comcast.net, Susan: wenger49@frontier.com. Have a great school year!

nother summer has passed and we are back in the classroom with renewed energy and ideas. I can’t express how valuable our membership with AEAI has been to us professionally and personally. If you are not an active member, you owe it to yourself to get involved. Kevin and I just returned from the 10th annual AEAI Art Teacher Retreat held at St. Mary of the Woods College. We are now the retreat’s coordinators and I hope everyone attending had as much fun as we did! The presenters were amazing and the artwork produced, extraordinary! So much talent and knowledge is shared at this event! Along with great projects, a wealth of information on assessment, classroom management, and teacher evaluation systems were shared in a relaxed and encouraging climate. If you missed this great opportunity to collaborate with your fellow teachers, your next chance is our 2013 AEAI Fall Convention, October 18-20 @ Marriott East, Indianapolis. Connecting with Art Educators from across the state for professional development is second only to the friendships that grow through respect and camaraderie. We hope you take this opportunity to join us and become active in our ... “your” Art Educators’ Association. We are currently working on our District 7 hands-on workshop for the convention and Kevin will be providing an additional class on Adobe Photoshop and photo editing for attendee’s to help us with the technology needed for so many art contests, AP submissions and college applications for our students. Remember to pack your laptops and iPads. Kevin and I are also saving our money for the NAEA National Convention in March 2014. If you have never attended a national convention, put it on your bucket list! If you can’t make it, be sure to go to the website. Your colleagues post presentations and information for members that I continually look at for infusing new ideas in my classroom and personal work! 2014 NAEA National Convention is March 29-31 in San Diego, CA “SPARK!” Fusing Innovative Teaching & Emerging Technologies We hope to see you in Indy!

An Open  Letter  to  AEAI  Members

Ms. Kevin  Schultz Ms.  Trish  Korte AEAI  Co-Representatives  of  District  7   Dear  members  of  the  Art  Education  Association  of  Indiana: It  was  very  thoughtful  of  you  to  take  so  much  time  and  effort  into  collecting  those  fantastic  art  materi-­ als  and  resources  for  our  art  program  at  Henryville  Elementary.    It  was  obvious  to  me  that  your  art   teachers  had  taken  great  care  to  provide  us  with  a  variety  of  much-needed  raw  materials  and  tools  that   will  last  into  the  coming  years.    But  also  with  specific  lesson  plans  that  included  everything  down  to   the  last  item  to  carry  the  lesson  out.    For  instance,  the  hand-made  “kit”  on  fish-rock  painting  lesson   from  White  River  Elementary  that  provided  a  detailed  lesson  plan,  a  fantastic  children’s  storybook  star-­ ring  painted  fish  rocks,  glitter  paint  and  even  the  rocks  to  paint  on.    This  is  perfect  for  my  1 st  graders   who  always  have  art  lessons  that  study  fish.     Another  favorite  of  mine  was  the  Kindergarten  mosaic  “kit”  from  IPS  School  58  that  provided  adorable   mosaic  lesson  samples  with  a  hand-written  note,  and  plenty  of  paper  to  work  with.    Actually,  it  ended   up  being  quite  useful  for  my  6 th  grade  Roman  mosaic  lesson!    There  was  so  much  going  on  at  the  time   that  I  was  unpacking  your  generous  gifts,  that  I’m  sure  I’d  forget  to  mention  them  all,  but  I  remember   being  in  shock  of  the  huge  rolls  of  colorful  felt  that  screamed  out  “puppets”  to  me  and  the  stacks  upon   stacks  of  construction  paper  that  has  had  a  million  uses  already  as  you  would  guess!   My  kids  loved  all  the  packets  of  pre-cut  smooth,  extra-colorful  papers  for  their  collages.    They  turned   out  beautiful.    All  the  charcoals,  rulers,  art  magazines  and  so  much  more  are  greatly  appreciated,  and   just  as  important,  your  kindness  is  appreciated.    I  have  big  plans  on  how  to  continue  using  all  your  gifts   into  next  year  and  beyond.   As  you  would  guess,  it’s  been  a  crazy  year  getting  back  to  “normal”,  but  with  the  help  and  support   from  caring  people  like  your  members,  it  has  taught  me  to  appreciate  more  what  I  took  for  granted  be-­ fore,  thing  and  people.     I  understand  that  United  Art  &  Education  (art  supply  co.)  and  your  members  collected  $350.  for  the   much-needed  gift  card,  that  the  High  school  art  teacher  and  I  are  splitting  and  using  for  more  art  mate-­ rials  through  their  catalog.    You  are  a  fantastic  bunch,  and  United  Art  &  Education  is  so  generous  for   this  gift.     A  special  thanks  goes  to  Kevin  Schultz,  her  husband  Rick,  and  Trish  Korte  for  all  the  extra  work  and   time  they  must  have  taken  to  be  so  helpful  in  our  time  of  need.    Kevin  and  I  grew  up  together  in  Hen-­ ryville,  and  she  has  always  gone  above  and  beyond  to  help  my  family.    Now  she  has  also  helped  many   people  I’ve  never  met,  and  touched  the  lives  of  all  our  students  at  Henryville!     Many  thanks, Hsiao-Ling  Gardner   Henryville  Elementary  Art  Teacher

reetings fellow educators!

I would like to reintroduce myself as Jessica Watson Coleman, I recently got married and wanted to let everyone know of the name change. It was wonderful seeing so many elementary faces at the recent workshop held at the IMA. We learned many interesting things about how to use art conservation in the art room, and had a wonderful time while doing it. As the school year settles into a grove we are getting ready for the fall AEAI convention. We had a very exciting meeting at the convention center and I am excited for convention this year. I personally find it so inspiring and rejuvenating seeing so many new ideas and talking with fellow educators. I always meet at least one new friend and learn about something to utilize in my classroom. I look forward to seeing you at convention and upcoming workshops. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you watsonj@ips.k12.in.us!

Art Meets Science at the IMA

What happens when K-12 teachers, museum educators and art conservators get together? They create new and exciting ways of looking at and learning through art!

After attending the “Art Meets Science” workshop at the IMA, I felt inspired to integrate even more science into my art lessons. I particularly enjoyed walking through the IMA’s African art gallery & learning about how art conservation can be incorporated into the On May 31st, the K-12 Outreach Committee of the American art room lesson. For example, there was a beautiful coil vessel that Institute for the Conservation (AIC) was thrilled to partner with the Sarah and Beth showed us-- they were describing how a small clay Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) and the Art Education sample is removed and investigated to determine how best to Association of Indiana to present an evening teacher workshop, Art conserve it. Later, when we had our discussion session with them, Meets Science, as part of the museum’s First Friday events and in art teachers shared ideas about how we could experiment with light, conjunction with AIC’s 41st Annual Meeting in Indianapolis. color fastness and fading in students' art (among other engaging topics!) I also imagined the flip side: art could be integrated in to The event, led by art conservators Sarah Barack and Beth Edelstein, the science lessons too! How cool would it be to have a periodic started off with an active dialogue in the museum galleries, looking table online, where art images were associated with each element? at Italian Renaissance painting, African sculpture, and modern For example, each time you click on the element gold (Au), you works by Robert Indiana. During the tour, Sarah and Beth modeled would be directed to all kinds of artworks that used gold, eg. gold the observations and investigations that would characterize a leaf, repoussé, filigree, Fabergé--you name it--now, science meets conservator’s approach to an art object. In each example, they art! discussed how conservators manipulate the electromagnetic --Emma Said, elementary art teacher, IPS School 106 spectrum through various laboratory techniques to better understand works of art, their materials and their history.

I found it productive discussion followed, with teachers and conservators fascinating!

ello, to all of the fantastic middle school educators through out our fine state!

As our summer draws to a close and the beginning of our school year approaches, it is almost time for us to get back into class mode. I hope that we can break from our four walls and realize that we must rely on each other for new and exciting ideas, for assistance with lesson dilemmas, or to simply communicate with other art educators for feedback and conversation. Most of us are isolated and the only art teacher in our buildings, not able to connect with the elementary or high school art teachers, to discuss curriculum as we are too focused on what our building wants us to learn for them, instead of being able to connect with the other art teachers, in our corporation for professional development. We must expand our horizons by networking with other art professionals and use our AEAI resources to stay connected. We can increase our knowledge base through our most important resource, other middle school art teachers. This summer, like the past three summers, I have taken advantage of the one AEAI guiltless pleasure, the St. Maryof-the-Woods Art Teacher Retreat. Go just once and you will be hooked for life. It is the one week I thrive not just an art educator, but as an artist. Throughout the year, I always begin projects with my students, but very rarely do I finish them. I am too busy teaching the process or concept, if I am not helping students find solutions to their problems, or re-emphasizing the techniques for a project, I am having classroom critiques, grading their work, or displaying it, then it is time for the next project, concept, skill or art movement and suddenly the semester is over, then it is time for a new grade level to teach. As much as I love teaching my students, I do not feel like an artist with all of those unfinished projects sitting in my drawers at school, which is why St. Mary-of-the-Woods becomes my saving grace. At St. Mary-of-the-Woods, I have one week where I get to be an artist. I am able to work without interruption and learn from incredible artists. I am able to re-energize and be refreshed and recognize the possibilities of the new amazing ideas and lessons I have learned. I can take these concepts back to the classroom and create new and exciting lessons for my students. We are so fortunate to have such phenomenal educators in our state willing to share what they know with us, through workshops, conventions, and retreats. Please feel free to contact me anytime, if you have something fantastic to share at a workshop, need assistance, or just need to connect with another middle school art teacher. My e-mail information is chastain367@gmail.com. Have a great school year!

elcome to the Fall Semester everyone!

I hope your summer was delightful and that you are refreshed and renewed and raring to get back into the classroom and studio. Fall is a great time in your classroom to introduce a lot of new ideas and changes that you have been mulling over since spring. With that said I have some new things being introduced into my life as well. My Husband and I are expecting our first child this Fall and I have decided to step down from my position as the Secondary Division Representative in order to focus some more of my time on our little family. My time as the Secondary Division Representative for AEAI has been wonderful. I have enjoyed meeting so many new people and have made some great connections at the High School level. I will continue to be active with the organization and stay connected. Still feel free to e-mail me anytime for anything: rgibson@brownsburg.k12.in.us. The new representative will be introducing him/herself in the next upcoming issue. I can tell you to expect some great things coming from this person. This teacher is incredibly innovative, always researching and coming up with the best ideas for the classroom. Make sure to introduce yourself to the new addition to the Board during Convention this year in October. New friends are always the best kind, and this teacher is a great friend to have.

t is an exciting time to be a member of AEAI. During the 2012-13 academic year, many members discovered that by joining forces, researching topics that affect our discipline, and speaking up in public hearings, educators could truly change the direction of decisions about to be made at the state level. As the Indiana Department of Education considered a proposal to no longer require college degrees for art and music teachers to obtain a teaching license, AEAI members jumped into action. Our email was alive and buzzing with excellent arguments put forward by professors, teachers and administrators at all levels. We discussed various talking points and the best strategies we could use to get our voices heard. Music educators and art educators created a strong, united front as we shared ideas about how to best advocate for the arts. After months of discussion, many teacher educators, from beyond the arts disciplines and representing various institutions, drove to Indianapolis to argue in front of the IDOE members for keeping the college degree requirement for licensure. Our members worked hard to keep the momentum going until the final vote. We won the first battle, but it is likely that it will resurface at some point in the future. I am confident that AEAI members will be ready for the next debate. Please join us and become an active participant in the effort to maintain high standards for future art teachers and to engender respect for art education as an important part of the P-20 curriculum. Contact me at campbell@ipfw.edu for more information. See you at the fall convention!!

T

he 2013 AEAI State Convention is coming in October, and I would like to encourage all art education students in the state to attend. The state convention is filled with insightful information of the art educational field, concerning lesson plans, make-and-takes especially with new media and techniques that you can use in the classroom. More importantly, you can network with a supportive peer group of experienced art educators. My personal experience with AEAI has been exceptionally helpful during my student career. I have made great connections with peers throughout the state of Indiana and locally, and made contacts for my student teaching through AEAI. The support and openness to share experiences in the classrooms has helped me have better classroom observations, and other great experiences while a student at Indiana State University. Hope to meet you in October.

Supervision/Administration

Steve Gruenert

T

he recent legislative changes for schools adopted last spring will certainly give our principals and superintendents more to think about. Here are a few (not all) new things school administrators will be dealing with this coming school year: 

The budget increased overall by 2 percent in fiscal year 2014 and 1 percent in fiscal year 2015. However, about 40 percent of schools won’t see any increase and some will see a decline due to hidden mechanisms behind the new laws related to enrollment trends. Imagine having to share that news with your community if you are part of the 40%.



Senate Enrolled Act 1, known as the School Resource Officers and School Safety law, this will help schools hire police officers, conduct threat assessments for school buildings, and purchase safety equipment and technology. Having a policeman at every school door sends mixed messages. Personally, I like having them there, but some may claim that the perception is that if we need a policeman then it must not be a safe place.



Senate Enrolled Act 338 addresses the problem of chronic absenteeism in schools. It requires schools to report their absentee rates and provides new definitions for “chronic”. At what point do we become concerned with how many days a student has missed? 10, 15, 20? It seems 18 may become the magic number. Once they crossover into the chronic area, principals must now chase them.



Senate Enrolled Act 352 is the “criminal gang” law that requires schools to start tracking criminal gang activity in their schools and report it to the state. This will become a public document and may impact future enrollments (see the first bulleted item above). Again, we find ways to take money away from schools who need it the most.



House Enrolled Act 1423 is also known as the “anti-bullying” bill. It requires schools to establish procedures for reporting incidents of bullying and to adopt disciplinary rules around bullying, both in and out of school. Yes, out of school. The schools’ jurisdiction is increasing because someone out there is not doing their job.



House Enrolled Act 1427 pushes the “pause” button on full implementation of the Common Core State Standards. We have ISTEP+ for at least one more year.

Our school leaders had plenty to do. What does this have to do with Art? I imagine even the best principals will be challenged to maintain positive dispositions as we yet again pile more on them. They would like to focus on instruction, and the new teacher evaluation model is again changing, for the better, but changing. Be nice to your administrators when you get a chance. If they are not a member of the Indiana Principal Leadership Institute or the Indiana Association of School Principals, there are no other supports out there.
