This art project was created by Mr Soik’s 2016 Spring Semester Honors Humanities class in collaboration with Marty Carney, Artist-in-Residence at North High School for this semester. This was the second collaboration which Mr. Soik called “ArtPlosion.”  This final art project was intimated by brainstorming between Mr Soik, Marty, and the students in the class. The overall pattern was created by one of the students to visualize the learning content about Western Civilization which the class had studied during the semester. Marty gathered supplies which would make the imagined project possible. Once the roots, text, and tree pattern was sketched onto the surface of a wood panel by the student, the rest of the class contributed images and quotes from their learning throughout the semester.  Other artifacts were also attached by the students to enhance the overall artistic ambience. As you see, the finished project visualizes the creativity and vitality of their learning process.

365 Artists 365 Days Project at the Wisconsin Art Education Association Conference

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.
