Winter, 2015 Issue 4: Information and Upcoming Events

Art Teacher Directory

The directory is almost done. We still have some empty slides. Please check and see if some are redundant slides that need to be deleted.

This must be finished by our inservice, Feb, 16. It will be going on our website soon.

For the time being, this list will remain alphabetical, and we will modify in the future.

Febuary 16 Inservice

The morning sessions will deal more with integrating technology/horizontal alignment and Proclamation 2015 textbook adoption.

The afternoon sessions will be Make and Take. Please read Missey's email and see your options.

Make sure to sign up in Eduphoria!

  • Number of works selected:

  • All work will be submitted electronically to the Superintendent’s Art Show Coordinator (SAS Coordinator).

  • Each image must have:

    • artist name

    • teacher name

  • The SAS Coordinator will mat, frame, and install all work selected, as well as maintain the show.

    • Framed work or work on canvas will not be framed/reframed, but will hang in existing state.

  • Artwork must be submitted to the SAS Coordinator prior to the following Arts Advocacy meeting dates: May, October, December, March.

The Show

  • Work will be displayed for 9 weeks. New works will be selected and placed in these months: September, November, January and April.

    • Participating Teachers and Students PLEASE NOTE: You will not be able to collect before the end of the 9 week time frame. All work selected will be hung for the full 9 weeks; therefore, work in the Superintendents Show is not available for other shows (for example: VASE, LISD District Shows).

  • The show can house up to, but no more than, three 3-D works.

    • The 3-D works must be ready for installation upon delivery to the SAS Coordinator.

Selection of Work

  • The selection committee is made up of 3 or more members of the Arts Advocacy Committee.

  • The process for selecting works will be the “sticky note method”. Each member of the committee will be given a proportional amount of sticky notes and then proceed to vote for their selection in each category (High, Middle, Elementary school).

  • The 3 works in each category that gather the most votes will be the works selected for the show.
