Art Educator of the Month Nominate Someone You Know Today!
We all know that teachers don't really have the whole summer off. One of our favorite things to do while we work in the summer is to refuel our creative tanks. The best way to do this is to join like-minded artist educators and work hands on to learn new techniques and build on our knowledge. Click here to learn more about the WAEA sponsored summer workshop hosted in Wisconsin Rapids.
Do you know an art educator who has been especially "rockin' it" this past month? If so consider nominating them to be featured here and on all our social media sites as WAEA Art Educator of the Month! Download the PDF here for more details.
