Off to NAGC

Here is the poster I will be presenting in a session titled “Whose Art is it, Anyway?” at the National Association for Gifted Children Annual Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina next week. I tried to highlight the benefits of a student driven art curriculum, in a 4’X4’ space.
I will also be presenting a session for “Creativity Night” (sponsored by NAGC’s Creativity Division, and an annual favorite event of mine). My offering is called “Altered Headlines”. I will invite participants into a mini-art studio to artistically respond to the day’s news by “altering” newspapers , using paint, marker, stamps, ink, scissors, stickers, templates, graphite sticks and who knows what. I have packed a complete art studio into my carry-on bag. Are squiggle scissors allowed through security?
