MAEA President's Message:
Times They Be A Changing
Please use the link to OPI and NAEA's Collaborate found at left to find some great tools and resources to help you navigate our new fully distance K-College curriculum. There are also great groups on FB. Together we can help each other navigate this new reality. If you have tools and techniques that are working please send them my way so I can share them with the larger group. For inspirational words, please see my comment after Governor Bullock's quote below. You are all awesome. We've got this.
Mark your calendar and submit your names for 2022. It is not too early to nominate your favorite art teacher for the MAEA 2022 Teacher of the Year! The next conference is slated for October 21-22, 2021. More information will be coming. The initial planning meeting is set for January 29th, 2021.
MT Visual Art Standards-at-a-Glance
The document attached below was developed by the standards writing team here in Montana a few years ago. The second page reviews the Essential Understandings in regards to Indian Education for All. The team thought a quick reference to the standards would be helpful. The full list of visual art standards by grade level for Montana can be found on the OPI website HERE and the national standards can be found HERE. The national standards rolled out in 2014 and Montana realigned their standards in 2016.
