Tate st. Festival!!! Coming really SOON! SEPTEMBER 17, 2011
We will collect materials and make arts& crafts to sell at the festival. This is an annual
fundraiser that the NAEA has participated in. Some of the ideas we came up with at the
meeting were to create bracelets out of buttons, headbands, feather hair clips, records,
and mini magnets. These are all ideas that we think will sale fairly easy. We have set
aside three dates for Tate St. Workshops: SEPTEMBER 9TH @ 4pm, SEPTEMBER 12th
at 6pm, and SEPTEMBER 14TH at 6pm. Please come out and help create items to sell.
Donations of items are also accepted. Last year we had some paintings donated and
they sold quickly! If you cannot make it to any of the workshop dates above feel free to
make things at home and drop them off or contact one of the officers.

Breaking Down the Barriers: The Faces of Mental Health

From Patrick Kalaw,
Eta Sigma Gamma, National Public Health Honorary
Peer Educator, Friends Helping Friends Program

Hello my name is Patrick Kalaw and I am the Mental Health Chair representing Eta Sigma Gamma, the national Public Health Honorary.  We are putting on a mental health event called "Breaking Down the Barriers: The Faces of Mental Health" which will consist of guest speakers telling stories of their struggles with having a mental health diagnosis.  After that will be a health fair style tabling session with different campus and community resources showcasing what they offer.  The event will be on March 30th from 11am-1pm in the EUC Kirkland room and we invite you and members of National Art Education Association to attend.  I believe this is pertinent information for your organization because creative arts students have shown much higher rates of suicide and suicide attempts than the general population.  If you could forward this to other members of your organization it would be greatly appreciated.  We look forward to seeing you all.

Welcome back, future Art Educators!

Happy beginning of the semester everyone! Hopefully everyone's break was enjoyable and fun-filled.

Our first meeting of the semester is yet to be determined and you will all be notified as soon as a date is established.

Until then...

West Guilford High School needs our assistance in completing their mural that was started last semester. The sign up sheet is posted on facebook and on this blog. We could really use at least 3 people per day to help finish the project up. On Saturdays, as many folks as possible for volunteering would be incredible!

We hope to see your bright and smiling faces soon and best wishes in kicking off a new year!
