Art Education Faculty and graduate students traveled to East Lansing this weekend to share research and experience with educators attending the 2014 Michigan Art Education Association Conference. Dr. Cam McComb delivered two presentations, Teacher/Researcher: Using Data to Prove an Understanding of Visual Context, and The Artist/Teacher: Finding Time to Cultivate a Personal Creative Practice. Dr. Guey-Meei Yang led a panel presentation titled, Art Lessons, Reactions, and Responses to New National Visual Art Education Standards, in which art teachers in the EMU Master of Arts in Visual Art Education Program shared lessons developed and implemented in the K-12 setting. Panel members included, Kristyn Demint, Dundee Community Schools; Jennifer Maerz Sullivan, Bryant Elementary School; Chris Boudrie, Taylor Prep Charter High School. The EMU Art Department is very pleased and proud of these graduate students for taking the initiative to be leaders in education.
We LOVE Art Ed. at EMU!
