 As you begin this new school year, I hope that you will take some time to look at a new online
 resource for arts teachers at this link: http://wvde.state.wv.us/instructionalguides/ the Teach
 21 Instructional Guides link. Once you are there, look for the ARTS guides at the base of that
 If you click on the icon for ―Visual Arts‖ you will see drop down menus for different course
 levels. Once you get to the grade level you are interested in exploring, click on a title and it
 will open up to the complete guide itself.
 At the top of the page, you can see at which time of the school year the guide would best be
 taught, and a listing of the all of the standards that are taught in the guide.
 The ―power standard‖ you see at the top of the page takes in all of the standards that are
 addressed by the guide. The forming of these power standards is a process we call
 ―chunking.‖ And we realize that you will not necessarily ―chunk‖ in exactly the same way
 when you teach the curriculum. So what you see is an example of a suggested tool that you
 can use to teach your particular content area at your programmatic level in your school.
 These guides have been written by West Virginia art teachers using the revised WV CSOs
 and providing you with suggestions for teaching not only visual art standards but also – in
 some cases – standards in other content areas. These integrated guides took a lot of thought
 and effort. Each one has step-by-step details as well as rubrics you can download, print and
 use – or even modify for your own classroom situation. There are also other helpful links
 suggested at the end of the guide.
 The writers and I are interested in your input on the instructional guides. Can you use them?
 If so, how can you use them in your own classroom, and what looks like it needs ―tweaking‖ at
 this point. (The nice thing is that the guides are not ―engraved in stone‖ – but can be edited
 by the writers.)
 Please let us hear from you on these guides. I will see that your comments get to the
 originator of the guide. Your response is valuable to us. My email address is
 jrlee@access.k12.wv.us . You may also write to me at the address posted below:

 education program should include two or more of the following characteristics:

 · The school should teach all the arts (music, visual arts, dance, and theater) as specific
 disciplines as well as integrated into other subject areas.
 · The program should create and use imaginative learning environments for teaching the arts
 and recognize that the arts are critical and essential to education.

 · The program should provide opportunities for parental involvement in the educational lives
 of their children through hands-on, creative arts-based activities.

 through the arts, enabling them to explore differences in ways that are full of adventure and
 devoid of cultural bias.

 community by offering students diverse experiences beyond the classroom.

 A letter from the State Association President:

 Dear Members,
           As I come to the end of my term as president of WVAEA, I want to thank al of you who have been
 supportive and encouraging to me. Your support and counsel have been greatly appreciated. This is a position
 that one volunteers for with eagerness and energy, and the desire to help move the organization forward in a
 positive direction. It is a position that one quickly realizes is a multifaceted position that leaves one feeling
 overwhelmed at times; but with the massive support system that is in place, (both on the state level and the
 national level) and the numerous people who made themselves available to me, I have been able to reach a few
 of my goals as president. Now as Thisbe Cooper steps in as your leader, I want to let her know that the same
 support and counsel is available to her so that she can achieve the goals she has laid out for her term.
           We've all been bombarded lately with information and buzz words about 21st Century Learning, and all
 our heads are swimming with new responsibilities and obligations in our classroom for the use of technology and
 implementing the revised CSOs. I know there are times my head is reeling from all the new information that
 floods my desk. As a member of WVAEA, you do not have to suffer alone, and as a member, you have many
 resources available to you: The Fall Conference, where the focus is the 21st Century classroom; the
 LOGO newsletter that you receive 3 times a year; the website; YAM and other contests for your students; NAEA
 (as a member of WVAEA, you are also a member of NAEA); and our executive board contact information is
 listed in the LOGO, so you can contact any of us personally if necessary. As one of my final requests as
 president, I am asking three last things of you: 1) Take full advantage of all of these resources available to you
 by visiting our website regularly and often helps you stay current on events, activities and contests. Our
 website; www.wvaea.homestead.com is updated regularly by our webmaster, Nanette Seligman. If you have
 news or questions you can contact her anytime. 2) to help us serve you better; If you are email active, please
 contact your Region Rep listed in this LOGO and give them your contact information. The Region
 Representatives are set up to be the liaison between you and WVAEA. Please contact them with news of you,
 your students, school and county. We want to hear from you and what you are doing with your program. 3)
 Lastly, help us serve other art teachers better. If you know of someone in your county who is not a member,
 please encourage them to be. Send us their contact information so that we can correspond with them.
           Thank you to everyone. Have a fantastic school year, and welcome to our new president, Thisbe
 Cooper. I know you are going to be a great president!
                                                                                                            Sandy Shaw
                                                                                                      WVAEA President

               The WVAEA and the NAEA Create a Joint Membership Brochure.
        In the summer of 2007 I had the privilege of attending the TEAM EAST Retreat in Pennsylvania. There I
met Deborah Reeve, the new Executive Director of the NAEA, and invited her to our fall conference in
Parkersburg where we discussed updating our membership brochure. She stated that she would love to work
with us and create a joint membership brochure. Krista is a native West Virginian and the graphic designer for
the NAEA. Leo Roe and Victoria Fergus worked with me as the brochure was planned, and the entire WVAEA
board had an opportunity to take part in the process.
        Krista created a bright, colorful, and professional brochure that delineates the value of membership in the
WVAEA and the NAEA. West Virginia is the first state to produce a joint brochure with the NAEA. Deborah
Reeve hopes to use our brochure as a model for other states. The new brochures will make their debut at this
year’s Conference in Shepherdstown.
                                                                   Submitted by Thisbe Cooper, President Elect

                           WVAEA Conference
 The Newly constructed Contemporary Art Center at Shepherd University
 will host the WVAEA 2008 fall conference ACT . . . creating transitions within
 the themes of art, community, and twenty-first century skills.

 Our conference this year focuses on the trilogy of Art, Community, and the ever important
 Twenty-first Theme of technology, communication and critical thinking skills. The conference
 title is: ACT. WVAEA will bring these three themes together to transpire art education beyond
 the classroom walls. Serving the Arts this year we will offer twenty-five workshops. Our expert
 on community involvement is David Heatwole, Editor-in-Chief of the Main Artery,
 www.THEMAINARTERY.com, Creator of TAC; Transcendental Arts Council, whose mission
 statement is ―To change the way . . . Art Works! To unite and transform society by
 promoting the arts and community projects.‖ David is working with a new project idea ―Put a
 Lid on it‖ using plastic lids and recycled items that can create greener art. Sharing ideas on
 the twenty first century is a group call Visual Thinking Skills or VTS
 www.visualthinkingstrategies.org with the latest research in art education developed in
 coordination with MOMA and Harvard.
 Shepherd’s is pleased to share its new facility. Located on West Campus, the CCA was
 designed to fit in with the natural surroundings with its roofline which mimics the rolling
 mountains visible in the distance. Phase one of the three part venture houses painting studio,
 drawing. Soon to be started, the next phases of the CCA will provide shared academic,
 performance, and production spaces and increase the opportunities for creative interaction
 between faculty, students, artists, actors, directors, designers, photographers and
 Don’t miss out. Plan to attend this professional development for West Virginia’s art educators.
 Each day promises to be filled with ―AHA‖ moments. And remember to attend the Art Auction
 and Banquet Friday Night at the Clarion. More good news! Lunch will be provided for
 Saturday’s general meeting and keynote speaker, David Heatwole.
