Regional Representative: Faye Scannell, scannellf@bsd405.org  Marta Olson, mARTA@theswallowkingdom.com

Faye and Marta would love to help you stay connected to other art educators in the ESD 121 district. Contact her with any questions you might have, as well as send her any fun or interesting information about your classroom and school news regarding your art program.

“Washington Art Education Association has always been an anchor for me to connect to my colleagues across the state of Washington and the US.  Once I began getting involved in WAEA, I did not feel alone in my classroom or school district without supportive and critical friends to share my work with. I learned through WAEA ways to deal with political issues to improve instruction and the arts in education.  I have a VOICE we have a VOICE!” ~Marta Olson

Here are some Events coming up in our area!

All Questions should be sent to your ESD Contacts, NOT the actually event locations. Thank You!

APRIL 29th 2017 – Daniel Smith art supplies in Seattle.  The emphasis of the day will be on fine watercolors and how to also use student grade materials that are affordable for the classroom. Thom Right will lead a tour of the DS manufacturing center for watercolors and do a demonstration of the materials for us.  This will be a great learning opportunity for teachers to make connections of earth science to the development of artist supplies and tools.

One of our members gave us a challenge for this day to wear recycled fashion and share lesson plans that connect to recycled art.
