SDATA art show and competition 2015

The Annual Southwest District Art Teachers Association Spring Conference was this weekend at Drury's Pool Art Center.   This event includes a student show/competition, an "art on the spot" event for high school students, a portfolio review/ scholarship, and workshop.  I was the presenter at the workshop, demonstrating our "Cartoon Skeleton" project and other visual problem solving lessons.  Teachers are allowed to bring 6 artworks to show, and mine were in the b/w drawing, colored drawing and water based categories.  Of the 6, we received 5 ribbons the Best in Show!  Here are the awards and work, and some wonderful examples from other student work from across Southwest Missouri.

Tatiana's "Mona Upton"- First place Colored Drawing
Josh's "Friendly Rivals" project- 1st Place, water based paint 
Brianna's Calligramme- 2nd place B/W drawing
Tiffany's "Einstein"  B/W drawing, 1st place
It was also the BEST IN SHOW for the JH LEVEL!!!
