The Massachusetts Art Education Association has chosen our own Aimee DeBose as the 2014 Higher Education Art Educator of the Year.
Aimee will be receiving the award on November 9 at the MAEA Fall Conference at the University of Massachusetts- Dartmouth.
A graduate of our MSAE program, Aimee taught for eight years at the K-5 level in the Ipswich Public Schools. In the Art Education Department Aimee has taught a range of courses, including Art and Human Development, PrePracticum I (undergrad and grad), Portfolio, and Concepts and Processes for Classrooms. She has played a large role in furthering the department’s relationship with the Bakalar/Paine Galleries, especially by involving the Prepracticum I students in Family Day.
This semester’s Saturday Studios program has begun, offering classes such as elementary Art Explorations, comic book art, sculpture, painting, photography, figure drawing, and fashion and fibers for fourth to twelfth grade students. The classes are taught by undergraduate and graduate Art Education students.
See a video about the Saturday Studios program here.
Selections is a multi-disciplinary, multi-media exhibition in the Paine Gallery of work by MassArt faculty who are newly hired or who are returning from sabbatical. Don’t miss seeing “me_ meme,” the work of our own Laura Reeder, who is in her second year in the Art Education Department.
In a video on the college website, Laura says her installation is really about “how information is synthesized in an artist’s mind and how it’s put back out in contemporary media…. it’s a whole bunch of computers talking to each other around a few canvases that have multiple images.”
Selections will be up until December 7.
