Biography - Frank Korb (b. 1972)
Frank Korb is known for his abstract and plein air works and focuses on the formality of the push and pull of the elements and principles of art in his work. Through the act of laying down the textures of bible pages to build a grid and real texture, he then adds colors, shapes, and additional texture as he considers the dynamics of the space in the picture plane and works toward a balance and harmony. While the intent with which Korb begins each work is important, he is equally concerned with the interpretation of the viewer regarding the relationships he creates within his work.
Frank has exhibited throughout Wisconsin in group exhibitions and arts performance events and has been an active member of the plein air community in Wisconsin.
Korb earned his Bachelor of Fine Art within graphic design and K-12 art education from the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater and his Masters of Art in Visual Studies from Cardinal Stritch University. He is an arts educator at Fort Atkinson High School, a former board member and Youth Art Month Chairperson of the Wisconsin Art Education Association, a member of the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network (MARN). He lives and works in Burlington, Wisconsin, with his wife Julie.

Art Teacher of the month for June is Becca Handy, a K-12 art teacher in Alma Center Humbird Merrillan
I am a first year K-12 art teacher that focuses on holistic teaching and accepting others. I am originally from Sparta, WI. I graduated college in 2019 from UW-Stout. I'm currently employed through the school district of Alma-Center Humbird Merrillan.
Please join the fun and share with your students!
VIRTUAL ALL ARTS DAY at Oconto Falls Elementary School is for EVERYONE!
The goal of this day is to provide enrichment and awareness of the four Fine Arts for students in grades 4K-5. Dance, Theater, Music and Art are the focus for the entire day! (Virtual responses are only art & music this year though.)
With the "safer at home" order issued, the challenge was to still provide this opportunity to our students, and potentially even more students throughout the country, given its virtual format. I'd like to share this out so you can provide this for your students too. There are 10 presenters. Each video is about 20 minutes long. Some are interactive, some are observation only.
Please enjoy and share!

I am both an art educator and artist.

I am a high school art teacher, the wife of a talented Native American Artist, mother to three talented little artists, a member of the Black Hawk Artists, an advisor to the FAHS chapter of National Art Honor Society, and an active member of the local art community.
Come Enjoy a Day at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts before the NAEA Convention!
Minnetonka Center for the Arts in conjunction with the NAEA convention planned an awesome “Day at the Art Center” as a pre-convention offering. The classes are with some of our top instructors and many feature great techniques and art processes that you can bring into the classroom—not to mention that you will have a great time making art!
There are a variety of mediums available:
Truly something for everyone! Our instructors are open to talking about their teaching methods and materials, including, for example, tips on running a ceramic studio or how to start a printmaking club.
Unfortunately, even though there were a number of registrations, the convention didn’t feel they could cover the cost of the transportation with their initial registration numbers and canceled their involvement. But we are not giving up!
We have a fantastic day planned and are opening it up to a wider audience. These workshops are open to convention-goers, teachers, teacher wannabes, and art enthusiasts.
All materials are included in the cost, so all you have to do is register and show up!
Attached is a PDF giving program details. You can also view this information online, as well as be directed to online registration. Any questions, or to register by phone, you can call our Registrars at 952-473-7361 x. 160.

I am Kelly Betz and I am a 2012 graduate of UW-Milwaukee with a BFA-Art Education. I have taught for the School District of Greenfield since 2013, teaching at Glenwood Elementary since 2013, Greenfield High School from 2016-2018, and Greenfield Middle School since 2018.
Through my dedication and commitment to teaching art, I took a part-time position and expanded it to full time. Throughout my years with Greenfield, I have pushed my students to be reflective, independent problem solvers; growing their creative skills and personal voices. I strive to make proud thinkers making changes in their world in whatever way they can. Students create work so they can show their growth and reflect on and be proud of what they made themselves, connect to community outreach by doing Milwaukee Empty bowls, and creating stop motion animations with partners focusing on stories students develop together.
I pride myself on innovating and expanding my curriculum with the integration of other subjects and technology and connecting with my students through pop culture and sarcasm. When I am not creating ideas for teaching, I am spending time watching movies/TV, experimenting and honing my own artistic skills, or playing video games with my husband, Kellen, who is also a teacher, and our small dog, Willy. Please feel free to follow me on social media to see more of my students' work, for I cannot do it justice with words. Twitter: @Glenwood_Art and Instagram: @betz_paint_splatters
I have twenty years experience as a professional artist and arts educator. I received my BFA in Ceramics from the university of Nebraska-Lincoln, and my MFA in Ceramics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1996. I received my K12 art certification from Cardinal Stritch. I had the pleasure of teaching Ceramics at Pius XI high school for six years before joining The Alliance School of Milwaukee, a small MPS charter high school where I developed the visual arts program designed to support LGBT, marginalized and at-risk youth. I was trained in restorative practices by Jamie Williams and Oscar Reed the founders of The Restorative Way. I incorporate storytelling, art making, handwork and restorative methods to empower students to share their stories as a way to cultivate their personal voice and build community. This past year I co-presented, "I Can Tell A Story.....Building Community using Art Making and Restorative Practices" at the IIRP (International Institute for Restorative Practices) World Conference in Kortijk, Belgium.
I will be co-presenting a hands on workshop next month for the NAEA Conference in Minneapolis and will travel to Sassari, Italy to present at the European Forum on Restorative Justice Conference in June.
I am a past recipient of the Milwaukee County Emerging Artist Grant and the Metropolitan Milwaukee Alliance of Black School Educators, "Black Educator of the Year" award. I have co-facilitated Restorative Practices training for students, staff and educators at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Milwaukee Public Schools, Wisconsin Art Education Association and for the National Council On Education For The Ceramic Arts.

Hello my name is Melissa Mulvaney. I graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 2005 with a degree in Art Education (k-12) and Biology Education (6-12). For the past 15 years, I have taught art in the Tomah School District as an art teacher. I have taught a wide variety of ages and abilities. This has truly made me believe art is for everyone and that we as humans have an innate need to create. I enjoy helping students make connections to their lives, feeling and other content areas through the art making process. I also run an art club for students 3rd through 5th grade with our focus on spreading kindness in our community through their art. The joy and pride students find through helping others is inspirational.
