See photos of Sonny's monster collage on display at the IAEA conference where he was honored at the artist' reception before it begins its year-long state-wide traveling exhibit. Learn more here. His monster collage was one of only 45 pieces in the entire state to be chose for this special opportunity and the only piece from Dryden. Congratulations!

Things I learned or want to learn...
Update: I made a plan for how I'm going to paint my Ukulele when it arrives.
I was really inspired by the project Megan Idell presented inspired by street artist, INSA who made Gif-iti art coupled with augmented reality. See some examples.
I demonstrated how to make a custom animated hologram. Here are my resources.
I had a chance to explore Susan Tiemstra's station with CreoPop 3D Pens. I took pictures of the creations people left behind. She said it is non-toxic heated ink cured with LEDs.
I practiced glitch art after talking it over with Justin Bickus at bit. He had a great suggestion. Take one file and open it in Text Edit and then open it again in Preview. This way when you change the code you can see the changes refresh in the photo.
Two Award Winners:
My former student teacher Matthew Etherington (who helped design this amazing lesson) won the IAEA Young Professional Award and my student Jessica was one of 40 artists honored for her artwork that was chosen for the year-long traveling IAEA Student Art Show. Find out more here.
Only 40 pieces of art art chosen from across the state for the Illinois Art Education year-long traveling art show. Out of the 683 pieces submitted by art teachers across the state our very own Jessica's artwork (currently in 5th grade) was selected. She will be honored at the conference on Saturday in St. Charles.
Below is an image of her painting based on Van Gogh's Bedroom at Arles.
She also entered the bedroom in a digital extension project.

Update from the event:
The IAEA Student Art Show is a year-long traveling exhibit of selected pieces of K-12 student art. This year there were over 640 pieces submitted for consideration. Congratulations to Klaudia (center) from Dryden Elementary. Her monochromatic Old Guitarist paper sculpture was one of the 40 pieces chosen. Watch a quick slideshow of the awards ceremony here or below.
I taught a walk-in (free) 90 minute iPad workshop on Friday morning at the conference. We looked at using Sketchbook Express for a bunch of different art learning experiences including portraits, digital collages, and drawing landscapes using shapes. See the artwork workshop attendees uploaded to Artsonia using the Classroom Mode in this gallery. View my lesson page here.
I attended some wonderful sessions at the conference to get my mind thinking about visual languages for programing like SCRATCH for tinkering spaces with squishy circuits so students can join the maker movement. I hope to explore the Plugin studio to figure out how to bring these ideas to my art students.
I participated in a panel discussion with International (Olivia Gude), National (Deborah Reeve), Regional (Laura Milas), Higher Ed (Richard Siegesmund), and Museum (Marissa Reyes,) art education leaders to discuss changes needed in our field. This felt like a huge stretch out of my comfort zone (my theme for the week) especially since I am k-5 art teacher who holds no official leadership position. Normally I do show and tell presentations where I let my students' work do the talking. On this panel I couldn't hide behind animations, videos, and artwork. I had to talk about my practice and my ideas for art education which I found to be very challenging in itself but considerably more so considering my distinguished colleagues. However my trip to Washington DC to discuss changing education to create innovators was fresh on my mind and fueled many of my responses. Thankfully, art educator Mark Hays, recorded most of the conversation and shared the file with me. You can watch the discussion below or at this link. (Thanks Mark)
Congratulations to Kristelle. Her value drawing self portrait was one of only 40 pieces chosen from all of Illinois for this year long traveling exhibit. She was honored on Nov. 12th in Bloomington-Normal at the Illinois Art Educators annual conference. Her beautiful portrait was a big hit with everyone. View all the chosen pieces here on the IAEA gallery on Artsonia.
View Kristelle at the artist's award presentation below. We're so proud of you!
