    Open Source Tech Tools to Use in the Art Room: A Pechakucha-Style Webinar!

    Wednesday, February 6, 2019 | 7-8 pm ET
    FREE for NAEA Members; $49 for non-members

    This seven-part webinar contains valuable information for all art educators. Participate in one or all seven. Your students will be glad you did.

    1. No Adobe? No Problem! | How to Create Vectors and Pixels Without Adobe Software. Interested in teaching digital media or graphic design skills to your students but are unable to use Adobe software (for budget or student at-home accessibility reasons or because you use Chromebooks)? This webinar segment, presented by Krisha Moeller, will provide you with an overview of how you can use Gravit Designer for vectors in place of Adobe Illustrator and Pixlr Editor for pixels in place of Adobe Photoshop. Other options for free, web-based, graphics programs will also be discussed.
    2. Open Source Tools for Fabrication. Digital fabrication opens up exciting opportunities for artists to bring machine creation and iteration to their artmaking process. With the availability of open-source software, designing with these tools has become affordable. Erin Riley hosts this webinar and will provide information on design and tool options artists can use with students in their studios and makerspaces.
    3. Quality Apps for Making Art With An iPad…But Wait! There’s More! They’re All Free! What is keeping you and your students from making art with iPads in school? If the price of apps for your large number of students is your reason, have no fear. Alice Matthews Gentili will show you apps that are short on cost (they’re free!) but mighty with possibility for drawing, painting, collage, and photo editing. With iPad and stylus in hand, nothing can stop you from getting your artmaking on!
    4. Generate Art With Scratch. Expect to be amazed! Computer programming is an art process, just like painting or drawing. Scratch is a free programming language that integrates art and storytelling. Artists who work with generative art create semiautonomous systems that share responsibility for the final artworks. Variations are expected but not predetermined, so the goal is to iterate on the results generated by the system—whether computational, mechanical, social, or a hybrid combination. Join Sean Justice as he shares valuable insight in this engaging session.
    5. Apps That Can Bring Engineering Into Art and Design Programs for Any Classroom. 3D fabrication can take many shapes, as long as you know the software that matches your students’ skill levels. Brandy Jackson shows you how to use TinkerCad, Fushion360, Google Drawings, and Inkscape to bring 3D designing to life in your classroom at no cost to you or your school.
    6. Creating Virtual Art and Spaces in Open Source Platforms: Students’ Art Projects in Virtual Worlds and Minecraft In her two National Art Education Foundation (NAEF) grant projects, Lilly Lu, PhD, explores the creation of virtual art and spaces with open source tech tools such as Opensim and Minecraft. They provide richer visual environment, more creative possibilities, and less expensive tech costs for digital artmaking. Lu will present student artwork created and exhibited in such platforms for formal and informal school settings and share her strategies and recommendations for future open source projects.
    7. Teaching Photography on a Title I Budget. Teaching students about photography should not be limited to those school systems who can afford dark rooms, computer labs, or expensive photographic equipment. With guidance from Carlos Alvin Cruz, learn how to use student-owned devices, tablets, digital SLRSs, and Chromebooks to explore the elements and principles of photography, while teaching students how to navigate different platforms and free apps to create digital artwork.

  • Calculating Success: Writing and Using Rubrics in the Art Room

    Contains 2 Component(s), 1.00 Credit Hour offered Includes a Live Event on 12/12/2018 at 7:00 PM (EST)

    Confused by the complexity of rubric design? Don’t know how to maximize rubric use to enhance student outcomes? Then this webinar is for you. We'll tackle rubric design by examining how project criterion is written and used by teachers and students in the art room. Did you know that many assessments classified as rubrics are merely checklists? Did students include this? Check. Did students cover that? Check. Sure, checklists and rubrics provide guidance on assessment, but rubrics do much more. A good rubric helps to shape student learning by clearly articulating the differences between levels of growth and performance. Students need this for a clearer understanding of what they need to do to move beyond initial responses and create work that pushes them to higher performance levels. Designing such a rubric takes time and requires feedback from colleagues and students. After participating in this webinar, you will be equipped to: recognize characteristics of effective rubric design; use rubrics for making and talking about works of art; create norms of understanding among your colleagues; align criterion with the National Core Visual Arts Standards; and write rubrics for assessment of learning and for grading.

    Cam McComb, PhD

    Dr. Cam McComb brings the sensibility of the practitioner to her roles of artist, researcher, and teacher. She has 25+ years teaching art in the K-12 public schools and received National Board Certification (NBC) in early and middle childhood art (2006-2026). McComb credits the NBC process for highlighting the symbiotic relationship that exists between assessment and learning. Her doctoral research found that preadolescents value different aspects of the art making process and that they are capable of identifying and expressing their artistic needs. More recently, she coauthored “ Visualizing Cancer: A Transdisciplinary Art & Biology Collaborative,” which was published in the Journal of Teaching and Learning (2018). McComb is currently building strong relationships between teacher-candidates, licensed practicing art educators, and the university.

    Katie Threet

    Art Educator, Holmes Middle School

    Katie Threet is a recent graduate of Northern Kentucky University and first-year teacher at Holmes Middle School in Covington, Kentucky, which is right outside of Cincinnati, Ohio (confusing, yes). She proposed a new class to the school board, got it accepted, and is therefore about to embark on teaching Art & Career Choices to middle school students. She will be fusing the artistic process, design thinking, and career planning in this 16-week course. Katie loves to travel on a small budget, spend time with friends, buy antique trinkets, and paint en plein air. She has a huge spot in her heart for preparing preservice teachers and believes that her wild and crazy journey to become the teacher she always wanted to be can help others!
