Art Advocacy Update
Your Art Advocacy Committee met this week. Here are the highlights:
"Perspective for the Pantry", Flower Mound HS Feeder School Art Show and Food Drive
Before donating the food, students created 3D still lives of the food using 1 and 2 point perspective.
All schools sent art work to Flower Mound HS for display. The Opening Reception is Monday, November 16, 4-5 pm at the FMHS Library.
MLK Art Contest
NEW! Photography Contest: grades 9-12
Flyers were emailed to us this week.
NEW! Art 1 Art Show, March 4-13
High School Art 1 Teachers: let Marty know if you are interested in serving on this committee.
Some things are trickling in. Most elementaries have received their vocab and artist cards. Secondary should be receiving their teacher editions...
Check out Creatubbles: https://www.creatubbles.com/. It's a safe, bulletin board-type site that allows you to showcase your student's art. There is no purchasing option.
Missey will be sending out a Google Doc for your wishlist ideas.
LISD Art: where should we be in 5 years?
Start thinking! We want to hear from you.
Look for emails from your Feeder Pattern HS, as we start the conversation: what do you want to see in 1 year? 3 years? 5 years?
Missey will be sending out a Google Doc for your ideas.
Some thinking points:
How we meet at the beginning of the school year.
Should we be integrating with the other Arts Teachers (Music, Theatre, etc.)?
What are we trying to accomplish as a Dept.?
Budgets--get a minimum per student.
Resources via Missey and Bill: what equipment do we need?
Clay for elementary, has that been helpful?
Community Service Projects.
Specific Issues in the classroom (teaching Pre-K, lack of craftsmanship, behavior management in Elementary, etc.)
Think of our LISD Art Ed Goals and let your representative know before our next meeting, December 8.
We are here for you.

Rules and Regulations
Drafted: Fall 2014
Teachers can submit as many works as they see fit.
Number of works selected:
3 - Elementary School
3 - Middle School

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

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.
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.
