Admit it…you could always use a few new lessons but all of the idea exchanges fall on a Saturday! A Saturday!!! We realize that Saturdays are very precious to teachers during the school year. That’s why, for the first time ever WAEA will be hosting a digital idea exchange. The concept is simple. Download the lesson template from the google link below, fill it out, add a few pictures, and mail it back to Dustin Anderson, WAEA Elementary rep, to gain access to the lessons collected. Folders will be created and lessons will be seperated into elementary, middle, and high school examples. It couldn’t get any easier…collect lessons from the comfort of your home!
- Download or “make a copy” of lesson plan template @ https://goo.gl/U8LC2i
- Fill out and add pictures of examples
- Email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org
- You will then be granted access to the shared folder

In early August a group of art educators met early on a Saturday morning at the Central Wisconsin Cultural Center in Wisconsin Rapids to take a break from thinking about the upcoming school year (well…not really) and created some artwork for ourselves as artist. A local artist, Meredith Jane, taught a morning workshop on polymer clay jewelry techniques. Each guest walked away with a variety of new skills and pieces of clay to make into fashionable jewelry. A quick lunch break allowed guests to try local favorite eateries and visit the farmers market. The afternoon consisted of classes being taught by Dustin Anderson, WAEA Elementary Rep, and included paint pouring techniques and model magic “mini-me” artistic sculptures. Attendees loved creating their very own paint poured canvas. They were amazed at the formation of cells and details that each artist encountered on their canvas. Everyone’s painting unique and colorful. We got to use a torch too…that’s never dull. Lots of fun information was shared and lots of new friends and resources were made. We hope to have another Central Wisconsin Invasion next summer but perhaps on a weekday so the weekends can be filled with family and friends.
