NAEA NYC Conference 2012

Sarah McHugh

Columbia College Chicago was represented in a BIG way at the National Art Education Association Conference at New York City!

Two separate groups gave presentations at the Student Chapter Roundtable on lessons plans they are implementing in their student teaching experience. One included Alexis Worley, and the other group was Keli Campbell and myself (shown above).

In our Roundtable presentation, Keli Campbell and I discussed two different lessons based on the same big idea (science standard) and the essential questions listed below:

Science STANDARD: Know and apply concepts that describe how living things interact with each other and with their environment.

Essential Questions:

What is the function of pattern in nature?

As artists, what can we learn from patterns found in nature?

Columbia College Chicago’s accomplishments did not end with students giving presentations! Our IAEA/NAEA Student Chapter won The RAEA Most Outstanding Student Chapter of the Year Award! In the picture above, our current co-presidents and future president gave a presentation on how we fund-raised, got involved with the community through advocacy, and much more to establish this great honor in winning.

Last but not least, another great accomplishment was by my Columbia College Chicago colleague in the Art Education MAT Program, Kayla Gale, who won the election for the NAEA Student Chapter President!

Above is a picture of the Present and the Past NAEA Student Chapter President, Kayla Gale and Kristie Knixon, that have both attended Columbia College Chicago’s Art Education MAT Program.
