  Greetings From Our Regional Director
                        Just a couple of weeks to go and we will have completed another school year. Did your year go
                        much more quickly than last year? Mine sure did! I haven’t even had time to order supplies for
                        next year. I am trying to wrap my head around SLO’s and OTES. If you should hear of any train-
                        ing sessions for SLO’s, please let me know, because several members have concerns. As always,
                        Western needs to stick together and support one another through the coming changes.
                        Is it time for you to start planning for professional development? Perhaps you already took care of
                        picking up a few CEU’s by attending Western’s two free workshops. In February, we met for a
 Judith Couture Charves
                         Printmaking/Clay workshop in Alice Tavani’s classroom. Judith Charves taught us how to
                         create a two sided, slab box, with lid. We also experimented with under glazes and carved linole-
  um. Our April workshop was instructed by Kathy Pugh. Kathy adeptly demonstrated a multitude of Watercol-
  or techniques and everyone left feeling much more confident with this challenging media. If you are in need of
  semester hours to update your teaching certificate, you may want to consider Miami University Craft Summer.
  Fill out the paperwork for the TEAM Scholarship and you will be able to take the class at 1/2 price.
  The Western Ohio Art Education Association needs your help! Our membership is declining. Over the
  past year we have lost 35 members. Do you know someone that has allowed their membership to lapse? Please
  encourage them to renew their membership. Now, more than ever, we need the support of other visual art edu-
  cators. We need to continue to help each other promote our art programs to show the importance of ART in our
  students’ lives. The OAEA will keep you current on educational developments, provide you with professional
  growth opportunities, and furnish you with a place to involve your students in numerous art exhibitions.
  If you have any ideas as to how we can increase our membership, please share your ideas with our Membership
  Chair, Kathy Pugh.
  Finally, I hope to see you at our upcoming Awards Luncheon at the Dayton Art Institute, on Wednesday, June
  12, 2013. We have a lovely buffet planned for attendees. Western’s honored guests are Cara Kellersmith for Dis-
  tinguished Educator for Art Ed; Cornell Studio Supply is the Distinguished Business for Art Ed; and Jennifer
  Tackett is our Distinguished Citizen for Art Ed. These three recipients have done so much to advocate for art
  education. Please give Rebecca Molnar a call, to let her know that you’ll be there.
  Enjoy your summer break!

High School Art Show…”Emerging Artists”                                                                         2013
High School Art Show… “Emerging Artists”
The Ohio Art Education Association (OAEA) is pleased to announce the return of the new and improved high school art
show! The new show, “Emerging Artists” is dedicated to showcasing the beginner artistic efforts, perhaps from students
who have taken only one art class. We hope to recognize budding talent and provide a professional forum for young people
to experience competition, something they will encounter in their college applications, portfolio reviews and future art ca-
reers in college.
The exhibition SUBMISSION WINDOW is NOW OPEN to any Ohio High School student whose art teacher is a member
of the OAEA. Each member may submit a photograph of up to five works of art digitally. DIGITAL SUBMISSIONS ARE
DUE ON MAY 15th for the Spring Board Meeting. Once the work is selected, the art teacher will be notified. At that time,
selected art work will need to be matted and submitted to their regional director by the September OAEA board meeting.
The Emerging Artist show will be on display September-October in the 2nd floor lobby of the State Teachers Retirement
Building in Columbus. At the reception, various awards and prizes will be given to selected students with art in the exhibi-
tion. Students may claim their pieces at the closing reception on Saturday, October 12th, 2013.
Access all information about the show at the OAEA website ( Find the link to the High School Art Show.
Teachers will create a log in which will allow you to access the online submission form and to upload photos of your stu-
dents artwork.
