Sanz, PhD kdsanz@faea.org As I enter my seventeenth year as an art teacher, I am thankful for the continued enthusiasm of the new school year. The excitement of decorating my art room, designing innovative projects, and reuniting with students still exists even after all these years. As many of you know, we work from home and plan projects even before stepping through the school doors. The time is upon us to focus on organizing our space, preparing for the influx of students, and doing Nicole Crane President, FAEA all that we can to make this year the very best! This is truly a wonderful time of year and the Florida Art Education Association hopes this school year meets your every expectation. Another favorite time of the year is quickly approaching, the 64 th annual Florida Art Education Association Conference. We sincerely hope you plan to join us in Naples, FL from October 6 - 9, 2016. Based on the quality of workshop sessions, amazing keynotes speakers, and exciting events, we expect another remarkable conference! Be sure to book your hotel as soon as possible because we are expecting a highly attended conference! The Florida Art Education Association is thrilled to welcome the keynote speakers for the 2016 FAEA Conference. The Journal Fodder Junkies, David R. Modler and Eric M. Scott, are artists, educators, authors, and internationally recognized experts on the visual journal. As a dynamic duo, the Journal Junkies have presented workshops, presentations, and seminars on visual journals spreading the importance, the power, and the joy of the visual journal. Join us as they invite you to explore yourself, your life, and your creativity. The 2016 FAEA conference lineup of remarkable keynote speakers will continue with Evelyn Rosenberg, known for her unique process called Detonography. Evelyn Rosenberg will discuss her technique that uses explosives to make large scale, monumental sculptures with intricate, complex details on the surface. It is certain to be an enlightening experience. The 2016 FAEA conference is sure to be something you will not want to miss! Plan to attend the Awards Breakfast and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of fellow art educators. The Awards Committee is proud to announce a new award this year: New Professional! Join us for a memorable ceremony of Florida art educators. The Members Exhibition Reception is another opportunity to acknowledge fellow members. The evening event provides an opportunity to view the remarkable work of FAEA members and their creative talents. Another highlight of the conference is the Saturday evening Gala. The 2016 Gala theme is Artistically Built Clothing (ABC). Start brainstorming creative clothing for the energetic evening that concludes conference. The ABC Party embraces the full spectrum of creative clothing including fiber arts, art themed outfits, and the more adventurous nontraditional fashion designs. The ABC theme is limitless! Attendees are invited to walk the red carpet in their original designs to compete for prizes. As we continue to carry out the mission of FAEA, as well as grow the organization and its reach to the art educators in Florida and beyond, we are currently in the midst of our Membership Drive. Our members are vital to the success of FAEA and we are asking for your help to build our member network. The beginning of the school year is an excellent time to renew your membership and encourage a colleague to join. Be sure to have new members use your name as a referral. The program is simple: the FAEA member with the most referrals by September 30th will receive a FREE conference registration! The winner will be announced at conference. On behalf of The Florida Art Education Association, may you have an amazing year filled with ongoing inspiration and endless creativity. Thank you again for your commitment to visual arts education and our students’ artistic and creative endeavors! See you in Naples! Yours in art education, Nicole Crane Nicole Crane, FAEA President-Elect The mission of the Florida Art Education Association is to promote art education in Florida through professional development, service, advancement of knowledge, and leadership.

    Elementary School Division Director Steve Miller, Grassy Waters Elementary West Palm Beach, FL Middle School Division Director Glenda Lubiner, Franklin Academy Charter School Lake Worth, FL Welcome back! I hope everyone’s summer was relaxing and refreshing. I always wonder why June and July are the fastest months of the year. By now, I’m pretty sure we are all back to school and feeling excited about what the upcoming school year will bring. I know if you are like me, I always have great intentions on completing my “to do” list for the summer. I try to plan on some projects and thematic units, but I always fall a little short on completion. Now reality has set in and I better get up from my rolling chair and begin to start thinking about my bulletin boards and first day lessons. If you have any great ideas and/or pictures you would like to share, please email them to me and I will gladly post for all to enjoy. One part of the school year I get excited for is the fall conference. The FAEA Board and conference committee has been diligently working on making this the best conference to date. Once again, it will be in Naples at the Naples Grande Beach Resort on October 6-9, 2016. The theme is 1…2…3D Art in Real Dimensions. Remember to register for conference and book your hotel room early as they will fill up fast. You don’t want to miss out. The gala theme this year is “ABC – Artistically Built Clothing”. I have already started brainstorming some ideas and I can’t wait to see the wonderful creations art teachers will come up with. Project Runway, watch out! While attending conference I know all of you will take advantage of all the amazing workshops and lectures that will be presented by your colleagues. The whole weekend provides all of us with fantastic professional development opportunities. This is my first year as your Elementary Division Director and I am excited to host a wonderful Elementary Division Meeting. Please plan to attend on Saturday, October 8, 2016. This is your opportunity to learn what FAEA is doing for you and how the leadership and professional activities promote art education in our state. I would like to prepare some topics for discussion. If there is anything that you would like me to discuss and prepare please email me at Steve.faea@gmail.org so I can have time to gather all the pertinent information and answers to your questions. Show your support and attend. Be proud of your achievements and make this year matter. Show off the work of your students and share ideas with colleagues. I wish everyone a great start to another school year. Remember: I am here for you. This can’t be done without your help. I look forward to seeing everyone in Naples! Summer is coming to an end and I know that we are all starting to think about what we are going to do in our classrooms this upcoming school year. I also know that we are all thinking about ways to promote peace in our schools in light of the recent incidences that have occurred this summer. Now is the time to advocate for your art program! Have a plan and try to follow it as much as time permits. We are all familiar with Eisner’s “10 Lessons the Arts Teach” (https:// arteducators-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/1/6e45f2c7- 43ec-468d-a75f-7a082a5a44a6.pdf?1450825980%29). If you’re not familiar or need a little review, click on the link and use them to advocate. We know that the arts teach things that some of the core subjects do not. Art teaches us to think critically and judge in the absence of rules. Art teaches us to see things and interpret the world instead of just looking at the things in front of us. Art teaches us to use good judgement and experience things we would not experience in other classes. Art teaches us that there is more than one solution to a problem. Art allows us to say what cannot be said. September 21, 2016 is World Peace Day. Let’s all start planning to show the world that there is still a lot of love and peace. Pinwheels for Peace (www.pinwheelsforpeace.com) is a great place to start, but it should not end there. Have your students brainstorm and come up with a plan (even make it a school wide plan and get everyone involved) to do something nice for your community. Talk to your local politicians and get them involved as well. Speak to your city librarians and arrange an art show for all the schools in your area and/or talk to local business owners to see if you can hang art at their place of business. You would be surprised at how many people want to support you, but just are not aware of what the arts can do. If your school has a music and/or drama department, plan an arts day at your school. It can be as informal or formal as you like. Again, get the local businesses involved to sponsor your show. Many businesses will donate gift cards. Auction them off or do a raffle. This will not only advocate for the arts but support your program financially as well. Your local museum educators are always there to lend a hand as well. Get your kids to the museums. Not only will it be a great day but think about how much they will learn outside of the classroom. Looking at art in a critical manner will help them to interpret and analyze, observe and evaluate, and it will 6 Fresh Paint Fall 2016

    help them become better story tellers. This will no doubt transfer to other areas of study. October 6-9 is our annual conference and I am hoping that you will all be attending this year. Don’t forget to book your hotel early as based on the high quality of presentations this year, the conference will be a sell-out. Naples is a beautiful place, great beaches, restaurants, and of course a bunch of great art teachers to meet, learn from, mingle with, and party with. I hope that you will join me at our division meeting and bring your ideas, accomplishments, and celebrations. If you are presenting at the conference this year, please let me know if I can be of any help or support. Don’t forget about our membership drive. Please encourage your friends and co-workers to join or renew and use your name as their referral. The FAEA member with the most referrals by September 30 will receive free conference registration. It’s as simple as that so start recruiting and networking now! I look forward to meeting each and every one of you this fall. Artfully yours, Glenda Lubiner (glendalubiner@bellsouth.net) which ways do we encourage our students to be in the “present” with their art experience? Are we ourselves present in the classroom and with our students and their artwork? Are we present with our own artistic pursuits? Please share with me your thoughts on this topic or these questions. How are you sustaining a present mind in an ever changing classroom and studio? How do we presently balance challenge and support with our students? How do you refresh your brain and open your perspective to receive enriching experiences? As summer comes to a close I send wishes of health and happiness to you. Rest, recharge and reinvest in yourself and look forward to this year with optimism and a fresh mind.

Before we know it summer will have slipped away and school will be starting. I hope that all of your wonderful summer aspirations were celebrated each day. Whether it was reenergizing your artistic spirit, cleansing your artistic palette, attending workshops or conferences, maybe a gallery or exhibition opening, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and overall refreshing and restfully spending your time, summer is our time of possibilities. As we look to our quickly approaching new school year, perhaps you are revamping old lesson plans, revitalizing curricula, and considering new approaches to visual problem solving. For me, I was recently struck by the concept of mindfulness. As I sat on an international flight, I began a casual conversation with my fellow flyer. Soon finding out he was a psychologist from Pennsylvania and currently reading a book on the topic of mindfulness, my mind projected the following questions: In It’s that time of year again! The semester is looming ahead as I suddenly realize there is not enough time to do all the things I had planned to do over the summer. I came to this realization about a week ago, in the passenger seat of a minivan filled to the brim with dogs and luggage. As soon as we got moving, I dug through my bag until I found the book I planned to read in the car, The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy, by Maggie Berg and Barbara K. Seeber. For those of you not familiar, the book uses the philosophy put forth by the Slow Food Movement to argue that academics are being asked to do too much, too fast, by too many people. In fact, the book points out that in 2013 being a professor was ranked as the number one, least stressful job out there! Can you believe that? Because I can’t! In fact, every year when I get my new assignment of responsibilities I am reminded of the absurdity of this ranking. Each August I find a single sheet of paper in my mailbox that might say “spend 50% of your time on teaching” when in reality I’m spending 80% of my time teaching, 50% doing service, and 70% engaged in research. Which really means I am spending 200% of my time on work. This doesn’t sound like a description of the #1 least stressful job to me. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my job! But I would be delusional to say that it is not hard work. Hence my interest in a book titled The Slow Professor. The Slow Professor is a part self-help, part scholarly literature review and part autobiography of the very experience we continued on page 8 Fresh Paint Fall 2016 7

    all share, that of being a professor. As a new professor myself, the book served as a reassurance that I am not, in fact, losing my mind. Instead, I am living for my work when I should just be working for a living. Essentially the book is a reminder to slow down, find your focus, establish a center and take a deep breath. I could go on, but you get the idea! Coming out of summer vacation I thought this might be a good reminder for us all. A reminder that while our jobs are important, we cannot do those jobs with excellence if we neglect ourselves. What makes you happy, what keeps you focused and centered? Are you making art, reading for pleasure, visiting the beach, walking your dog, digging in your garden, playing with your kids, having dinner with your partner, or doing any of the things that bring us joy and peace? So as we all put our to-do lists together this August, I challenge you to remember to schedule in some time for yourself and let go of the things that aren’t meaningful anymore. Find a way to slow down and enjoy your work, but also remember to enjoy your life. I hope you all find some slowness in the days ahead! Many wishes for a successful school year to you all! See you at FAEA’s conference in October! Museum Education Division Director Jaclyn Gallagher, Tour and Camp Program Coordinator, MOCA Jacksonville While the summer is a time for art teachers to regroup and prepare for the next school year, this tends to be a very busy time for Museum Education Departments as we facilitate various Summer Camp initiatives for students in our area. While this is a busy time, it is also a lucrative and rewarding time. This is a time for institutions to generate revenue and provide quality instruction to students of various ages. This is a great opportunity to collaborate with your local school district to promote and showcase the wonderful work your institution is doing to continue enriching student’s artistic growth outside of school. With the annual conference right around the corner, now is also a great time to prepare for your presentations! Although we are a small division, the conference is a great opportunity to showcase our extensive knowledge of Art History and the wonderful work our institutions are doing within our communities. Not only will teachers benefit from learning about artists, techniques and lessons they can take back to their classroom, you will gain professional development and improve your public speaking. If you do not plan on presenting, join us for our Museum Mashup session! Details will be coming shortly once we get closer to the conference. Good luck on the remainder of your summer and I look forward to seeing you all in October! Supervision & Administration Division Director Edrick Rhodes, K-12 Arts Education Administrator, Palm Beach County Greetings Supervisors and Teachers. Welcome back to another school year!!! I truly hope you took some time to relax, reflect and refresh your creative minds to continue fostering our students’ academic growth and success through the Arts. I had the pleasure of attending my first FAEA Summer Art Workshop. I would like to congratulate our President, Dr. Nicole Crane and her colleagues for organizing and presenting multiple outstanding workshops. As we start the new school year designing innovative lesson plans and thematic units for teachers and students, let us also take time for our own professional growth. Please mark your calendar for the 64th Annual FAEA Conference, themed “1…2…3D: Art in Real Dimensions”. The conference will take place in Naples, Florida October 6th-9th, 2016 at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. The Board is very excited to have The Journal Fodder Junkies and Evelyn Rosenberg as keynote speakers. This year’s Gala theme is “Artistically Built Clothing (ABC)”. Encourage your Visual Art teachers to attend and start booking your hotel rooms now. During the conference, we will have our Fall Supervisor’s meeting. I will email you further details as we get closer to the date. If you have any trending topics to discuss, feel free to email me and I will add them to the agenda. If you have any questions about the conference, or in general, please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a great start to the school year and I look forward to seeing you in Naples, Florida.

    Retirees Division DIrector Bill Chiodo, FAEA Retired Members’ Representative The Secrets and Myths of Saving Being retired has been a consumer adventure. Amid the daily snail mail’s flood of life insurance — “Up to $100,000!” — and Medicare supplement-plan offers; flyers for big, embarrassingly simple, phones with oversize keypads; and slick, colorful ads peopled by smiling silver-haired models for TV-drugs with clever, fanciful names that treat, well, a host of unpleasant maladies from head to toe — there are a few discounts. I’ll take the discounts, “senior” or otherwise, every time. I now have cards for discounts to museums and national parks; cards that apply discounts for travel, car rentals and hotels; and buckets that fill with discounted popcorn at the movies. It is a world unto itself. I would need a separate wallet — maybe two — just to carry all those cards. Once, in a remote part of Canada, the person at the museum admissions desk asked, unprompted, if I had a certain discount card. “I have one, but not on me,” I replied. She gave me the discount anyway. You gotta love Canadians. Some of the best discounts are in art supply stores because, as artists, we spend so much time and money there. Is there anything more satisfying than a towering wall of paint tubes, a forest of brushes, or a stack of stretcher bars big enough to frame a house? If you are like me, you go into a kind of a trance in art-supply stores. Sennelier, Winsor & Newton, Gamblin — and all the other famous names — are like old friends welcoming you back as an extended family member, maybe a little prodigal, but returned to sample the wares. And once you are registered, you don’t need to remember to bring the card or the little tag they provide for your key ring — just your phone number. Instant savings! (Save 15%! Save 20%!). The myth that “the more you spend, the more you save,” is realistically, “the more you spend is always the more you spend.“ Then there are the other sources with added benefits. Besides the discounts, I find a lot of useful information in the AARP magazine — “The World’s Largest Circulation Magazine,” — which I tuck behind a copy of Time so the casual passer-by assumes I’m a younger guy admirably keeping up with current events. (Actually, after a certain point, I stopped being a newsie. It all just seems to repeat over and over.) For example, did you know that there is an order to applying bug spray and sunscreen? Listen up, Floridians; it is sunscreen first, and then insect repellant second. Who knew? Bug sprays work because they create a field of repellency as they evaporate and leave the skin. Live and learn. Thanks, AARP magazine. And what is the best discount going for retired art educators? Hands down, it is the upcoming FAEA conference! Complimentary registration applies for retired members. In addition, there will be an outstanding array of sessions and feebased workshops. I really look forward to seeing you in Naples. continued from page 8 Dimensions.” Sessions will include Art Forums, 60 minute demonstrations or presentations; mini-studio workshops, 120 minute hands-on activities, half-day studio workshops, and 3 hour hands-on activities. Our gala theme is “Artistically Built Clothing (ABC)” and you can google ideas on the internet or look at Pinterest for inspiration. The keynotes this year are The Journal Fodder Junkies and Evelyn Rosenberg. We will also continue the raffle that made its first appearance last year so start saving some “fun ticket” money! Some of the exciting raffle items are 4 Disney Theme Park one day passes, a vacation to Mexico, a Guy Harvey book, and many other things! It is going to be such an exciting conference, so book your hotel rooms now! Encourage a friend or colleague to join FAEA so they don’t miss out on upcoming exciting news or the 64th conference! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns. Gear up for conference held October 6-9th, 2016 at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. Fresh Paint Fall 2016 9

    Board Consultant Report ... VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! Kathleen D. Sanz PhD Board Consultant, FAEA This is an election year for not only the President of the United States, but United States and Florida legislators. It is critical that our voice be heard at the polls. We can make a difference by voting for legislators, school board members etc. that support education in general and visual arts education specifically. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was passed in December, 2015. Currently each state is working on their implementation plans. We need to be vigilant and focus on these plans and the implementation in each school district. The intent by the U.S. Congress for the implementation of ESSA includes the following: • Clear Intent to support our nation’s schools through a well-rounded education • Requirements for well-rounded education that allows for use of federal funds. • Flexibility of Title I funds to support a well-rounded education. • More professional development for arts educators • Flexible accountability systems that will be determined by the states • Protection form “Pull Outs”: The new ESSA discourages removing students from the classroom, including music and arts, for remedial instruction. Florida Legislature After the November elections, the Senate will meet on November 22, 2016 to organize committees etc. for the 2017 legislative session. This is where we will discover who the key legislators are on the education committees. The executive committees of Florida Art Education Association, Florida Music Education Association, and the Florida School Music Association will meet to discuss the platform to move forward legislation for arts education. This year’s Legislative Session will begin on March 7, 2017 and end on May 5, 2017. Become a member of the FAEA advocacy effort. Sincerely, Kathleen D.
