The focus of the Visual Arts Interest Group will be to spur the interest of those who may be interested in the Fine Arts as well as traditional and experimental craft forms. No experience is necessary! Everyone creates at their own pace and level of expertise. The cost for hands-on or museum or studio tours will be announced in each newsletter article. Additionally, there may be some weekend shows or exhibits that the group will be notified via email.
The Group Leader holds an advanced teaching certificate for Visual Arts Education and has served the Art Office of Anne Arundel County Public Schools in Annapolis, Maryland for 27 years. In that capacity, she focused on planning and coordinating staff development, helping with student exhibit opportunities, curriculum writing, technology program development, and implementation of other art office initiatives.
She has provided curriculum development and staff development in a variety of media, including digital processes. Additional administrative duties in the art office consisted of writing staff development courses for MSDE credit, mentoring new teachers, designing all publications, writing all visual arts curriculum, selecting visual arts texts and working closely with other curricular areas for general curriculum development and teacher in-service.
Meetings will be on the 3rd Friday of every month.
