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.
