Getting Your Student Chapter Involved in the Community

Conference Name: 2011 National Art Education Association (NAEA) National Convention

Presented By: Kelly Junis, Stephanie Christy, Mary Powell, and Rebecca Bartlett

This session will be presented by student members from the NAEA Student Chapter at Grand Valley State University. The purpose of this session is to communicate and spread awareness in favor of what university students and NAEA Student Members can do in their local communities with art education. This session will present several community art programs they organize and participate in, within the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. These programs include community collaborations with local k-12 schools, by inviting classes to campus for a full day workshop, and the local Gerontology Network, by bringing a printmaking workshop to them. An explanation of how these programs were possible, the knowledge gained through the entire process, and the experiences in their entirety will all be shared.
