Today Mr. Juarez presented the 365 Artists 365 Days Project at the Wisconsin Art Education Association Fall Conference at the Bruce Guadalupe Community School in Milwaukee. This project is used as a vehicle to infuse Literacy into the art room. This project exposes, educates, and engages his Art Foundations 1/2 students into the world of Contemporary Art through the use of technology, silent reading, group discussion, and individual work on a weekly basis.
Mr. Juarez is currently compiling a list consisting of artists’ names, locations, website and genres. To receive this database email Mr. Juarez at fjuarez(at)sasd.net and in the subject box type: 365 Database. This will become available in early January 2015.
Mr. Juarez is available to talk to any teacher interested in implementing this project into his/her art curriculum.
About the 365 Artists 365 Days Project
On January 1, 2014, Frank Juarez from the Frank Juarez Gallery (Sheboygan) and Rachel Quirk and Zina Mussman from the Greymatter Gallery (Milwaukee) launched the 365 Artists 365 Days Project to the world.
What started as a way to spotlight contemporary artists daily from across the country blossomed into getting the attention of artists from across the globe such as Germany, Slovenia, Australia, Russia, London, Serbia, Israel and the United Kingdom.
