Hey WAEA we want your faces!
We are putting together a collage of art teacher pics and artwork to create a Frida Kahlo for the Back to School catalog cover. We need LOTS! I WANT you and all our WAEA peeps. The pics will be small because they are part of a collage. Please help me get more teachers. I need about 200 by the end of the week. You can give them my email email@example.com to send their picture to. By sending the picture they agree to let us use it.
I am excited and would love to see you all on it.

I have had an amazing artist-in-residence working with my students to paint 6 large scale mural projects at my school and she has worked at three other schools in my district during a district-wide artist in residence program. Her name is Anne Raskopf, she is a local artist with experience doing private and public murals as well as paintings. More importantly she works well with all levels of students K-12.

Holden Fine Arts, UW-Superior
Loosen up and make your mark in our drawing studio at UW-Superior! We’ll play with three different drawing exercises that will help to free up the perfectionist in our students of all ages (example photos attached). Work on a collaborative chalk mural and two portrait drawing processes that will use alternative drawing tools. If you’d like to continue after lunch we will visit the Tweed Museum of Art where the current “Intersections” exhibit is on display, featuring a selection of contemporary artworks by 19 Minnesota-based Native artists.
Lunch will be provided. Free for WAEA members and non-members. Great way to meet and collaborate with other art instructors at the end of the school year!
RSVP to email@example.com (or reply to this email) by Wednesday, April 24th to reserve your spot!

My name is Courtney Goss and I am now in my eighth year as an Art Educator. From a young age, I always told everyone that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. It wasn’t until I had already graduated from UWM with a BFA in Inter-Arts that I realized I wanted to go back to school to pursue a career as an Adaptive Art Educator.
I am now in my second year with Whitnall School District, and could not ask for a workplace that offers a greater sense of community. As the only Middle School Art Teacher in the district, I have the wonderful opportunity to see these students come in as young sixth graders and blossom creatively as they grow. I challenge my students to push beyond their comfort zone, research, problem solve and thoroughly reflect on the pieces they create. Through building positive relationships, an open mind to meet my students in the middle, and the motto “Every accomplishment starts with the decision to Try,” my goal is to create a safe and positive environment for all students that walk through my door.

My name is Sara Hinke and I have the pleasure of working, living and raising my family in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. At a young age I would play teacher, create worksheets and give homework to the neighborhood kids. It wasn’t until high school, when I was required to take a fine arts course, that I found my true passion in art. I never knew I could create art until my high school art teachers fostered and challenged my talents. It was through these experiences that I knew I wanted to teach art and give my students the same passion for art that my teachers did.
As a grade 6-12 art educator at Tomahawk School District, I have the pleasure of getting to know, teach, and create art with every student. I have been teaching art for 11 years and have created a curriculum where every student has the chance to become an artist, creative problem solver and better citizen. I challenge my students to push themselves creatively, seek ideas and criticism from their peers, and denounce perfectionism by embracing mistakes. My favorite part about being an educator is watching my students’ eyes light up when they create art. My goal is to change each student’s “I can’t” to “I can” create. I believe that every person can learn to create art and that no one is without their own creative eye.
