If you are seeking new project ideas and methods for teaching two-dimensional art, time to develop your own 2D skills, and opportunities to converse with art education colleagues from around the state, join illustrator and veteran high school art educator Josh Newland for three fantastic summer days in Madison as he walks you through his drawing curriculum, models teaching and assessment strategies, offers technical demos for a variety of media, and guides you through unique hands-on, engaging projects inspired by heraldry, howdahs, and Rube Goldberg machines.

Instructor: Josh Newland is an educator, sculptor, and illustrator. He received his BS degree in Art Education from UW-Madison in 2008, spending his time teaching during the school years since, and producing during his summers as a freelance artist. His work has been featured on album covers, Youtube, the indelible Netflix series Video Game High, and on a hell of a lot of lesson plans.

* *About the Loy-Swanson Summit: One of the Art Department’s generous alumni, Jean Swanson, had a vision to connect veteran k-12 art teachers, who maintain a rich artistic practice of their own, with our art education undergraduates and other k-12 art colleagues in the state. In this annual Summit for Art Educators, veteran k-12 artist-teachers open up their teaching practice, explain their curriculum decisions, model assessment and instructional methods, and discuss how they arrived at these approaches to teaching and learning in the visual arts.
