    "Making it" as an artist or simply making our own art is something many of us want to do. And, in our field, we most likely want to do this while simultaneously having a meaningful career as an art educator. Did you know that you already hold the key to making this happen? It's your story!
    Learn innovative approaches to help you tell your story through your own work as an artist while embarking on some truly magical and collaborative projects with your students.

    This webinar begins with an introduction to Michael Bell's worldwide movement called 31 Nights. This project will not only ignite passion in you and your students, but it can literally unlock the doors to your own artmaking process. Find your signature style and authentic voice in your artwork and your teaching.

    Additionally, you'll explore another global project, tet[R]ad: Draw & Play. This international artmaking exchange project is envisioned and developed by longtime makers of creative mischief and innovative mayhem, David R. Modler and Samuel H. Peck. The ultimate goal of this ongoing project is to foster Personal Learning Networks through one-to-one visual journal/diary collaborations. tet[R]ad includes teachers, students, and artists, as well as others from the broader community. Participants openly and playfully share their drawings, writings, collages, opinions, and experiences as they make connections through collaboration and dialogue with artistic accomplices.

    Become part of the cultivation of these creative communities while fostering your own creativity as an artist and educator—making global connections in the process! All are welcome!

    Callie Lewis

    Elementary Art Educator

    Callie is an art educator who currently teaches at a K-6 Elementary school in Ashe County, North Carolina. She graduated with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education at Appalachian State University and began teaching in 2015. She believes her job of an art teacher extends beyond teaching the curriculum, rather, teaching students that all forms of art exist as opportunities for an outlet to recharge and revitalize one’s self. Being a part of a local Art PLC has brought this belief to a new level of community revival for art educators of all grade levels within her county.

    Jorena Sparks

    Elementary Art Educator

    Jorena attended UNC-Greensboro for her BFA and Appalachian State for her Master’s in Elementary Education. She first began her career working with children in museum settings and has been teaching art in North Carolina public schools since 1999. Currently (and since 2004) she teaches visual arts to grades K-6 in Ashe County, NC. Tired of feeling so alone professionally, Jorena was a driving force in establishing the Ashe County Art PLC. Known as “the bossy one” she schedules meetings, puts together agendas, and makes sure the paperwork is in order to obtain continuing education credits for the PLC meetings.
