Sheboygan, Wisconsin – Sheboygan North High art teachers Dannielle Arneson and Frank Juárez will be presenting at the annual Wisconsin Art Education Association Fall Conference in Red Wing, Minnesota in late October 2022. This year’s conference is a collaboration between two state art education associations; Art Educators of Minnesota and Wisconsin Art Education Association.
Arneson will be co-presenting on Interested in Becoming a Nationally Board Certified Art Teacher? This presentation will guide art educators about the process and how it is relevant for professional growth. In addition, a brief overview and an honest description of the work and time needed to achieve and maintain National Board Certification will be shared. Juárez will be presenting on Designing Your Very Own Virtual Artist Talks Series. In this seminar, attendees will learn how to design a virtual artist talk series centered on college and career readiness using readily available platforms to interview North art alumni.
This year’s conference theme is Collaboration, which will bring visual art educators from across both states for professional development, motivational keynote speakers, networking, and camaraderie. The National Art Education Association recognizes that the visual arts are grounded in the communities from which they come. Communities are complex, dynamic, and diverse. Communities bring people together and prompt individuals to identify themselves and each other as members of a group. NAEA members are encouraged to work with local, state, and national organizations that share common visions and goals. Resulting community arts collaborations can be nurtured through partnership projects and advocacy efforts.
