Making the Fine Arts Standards Come Alive in Your Visual Arts Classroom!

It has been almost a full year since Iowa adopted Fine Arts Standards, so what do I do now? I don’t have time to add anything else to my plate. HELP!  Well, you’re in luck.

Make plans to attend this engaging one-day workshop sponsored by MISIC.  You will take a brief overview of the standards and how they are structured, as well as see how you are already “doing” these standards. You will have time to collaborate with your peers, look how what you are already doing matches the standards, as well as have access to a new online user-friendly lesson plan template to help you document the implementation of the standards.

Who: All K-12 Visual Arts Teachers, Instructional Coaches, Administrators, etc. 

When: Friday, October 26 – 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Location: City Church – 2400 Oakwood Rd – Ames, IA

Facilitator: Ronda Sternhagen, Visual Arts Teacher in Grundy Center & Visual Arts Consultant for Central Rivers AEA.

Cost (lunch included): MISIC Members: $100/person. Register 4 people and the 5th person is free!***
