Art Advocacy Update
Your Art Advocacy Committee met last week. Here are the highlights:
Summer In-service for August and November Trade Days!
Courses are currently on Eduphoria. There are not as many options as last year, especially at the elementary level. If you want to host an in-service, please email Missey ASAP.
Faculty Art Show: June-August
Bring your art to the Bolin Center after school May 31 or June 1. You will set up your own art. We will have display tables for 3D art. Look for emails containing labels from Marty Kruk or Nancy Lawrence.
Spotlight on: Castle Hills Elementary
Castle Hills Elementary built three outdoor weaving looms in the new Outdoor Learning Center called "Castle Courts." Planter beds, musical instruments, and a butterfly garden are currently under construction. The students are enjoying getting outside and working on such a large scale with their friends.
Upcoming Art Education Events: Prepare for next year!
Sign ups for Timbercreek and Bolin Admin Buildings: Missey will send out an email
Flower Mound Schools: Flower Mound "Art Party", end of October, 2016
Flower Mound schools, student art display opportunities at Point Bank and Movie House Eatery. Tammie Turner will email a sign-up link in August.
Call for Submissions: Lori Rapp's Office
Artwork must fit within an 8'X8' wall space, and needs to promote the diverse and high quality of our program. This will be a permanent installation. The art does not have to be framed, but needs to be ready for display.
If interested, please send digital images of the student art to Missey.

Teachers can submit as many works as they see fit.
Number of works selected:

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.
