(July 24-27, Santa Fe)
The Da Vinci Initiative gave away TWO weekend workshop retreats worth up to $3,000 each in a drawing held at the NAEA National Leadership Conference. The Da Vinci Initiative will be partnering with the winners of the drawing - the Wyoming Art Education Association and the New Hampshire Art Education Association - to plan the retreats for art teachers. A professional artist will be brought in to conduct technical drawing and painting workshops for attendees. These skills can be brought back into the classroom to promote skill-based learning and visual literacy among youth.
