[teacherartexchange] Innovative Practices in Teaching Art


From: M Blue Horn (blue_at_TeacherArtExchange)

 Greetings to all,
I will be teaching a graduate course entitled Innovative Practices in
Teaching Art in the June term at a local university with a compact timeline:
Monday - Thursday, 10-2:00.
The syllabus has not been examined in who knows how many years, so I am
asking for your input on what you consider to be Innovative Practices in
Teaching Art. So far, I have accumulated this information:
- Latest on Assessment in art ed including rubrics, electronic portfolios,
conference forms, etc.
- Visual Culture as a philosophy
- Aesthetic Education
- DBAE, re-examining
Any additional topics that you consider worthy of discussion, PLEASE feel
free to add to the list.
M. Blue Horn

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Surdna Foundation Fellowships to High School
Arts Teachers

Attention High School Art Teachers,

I received this from NAEA today.....

The Surdna Foundation Fellowships to High School Arts Teachers

The Surdna Foundation is pleased to announce the seventh round of the Surdna
Arts Teachers Fellowship Program, a national initiative to support the
artistic revitalization of outstanding arts teachers in specialized, public
arts high schools. We are asking you to help disseminate information about
the program to eligible arts teachers, schools and leaders in the fields of
arts and education in your region.

Surdna's goal is to help arts teachers in public arts high schools increase
their effectiveness as they guide and train young people for careers or
advanced study in the visual, performing, and literary arts. The Foundation
believes that if teachers can immerse themselves in their own creative work
and interact with professional artists/colleagues, they will bring new ideas
and practices into the classroom.

The Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship Program will enable selected teachers to
create art with professionals in their fields, stay current with new
practices and resources, and create new bodies of work. Twenty awards of up
to $5,000 each will be made. A complementary grant of $1,500 will be
awarded to the Fellow's school to support post-fellowship activities.

Please help us by posting this information on your website and e-mail
listservs. Letters of Intent to apply are due by November 17, 2006. For
more information and application materials, please go to:
