The #heART_Ed Challenge - Who inspires you?
About a week ago a very sweet post popped up that #TeamGrundler was tagged in, it was from Holly Bess Kincaid (@artladyhbk) and said, Thank you for being a constant inspiration to others, sharing knowledge and building an active online community of educators! #K12ArtChat #heART_ED. Give a shout out to an art educator you heART and say why.
We were humbled and thankful, it was a moment of affirmation. Our professional learning network motivates us to keep finding new ways to connect creative educators and share as much as we can to support each other. Therefore the #heART_ED challenged was on for us!
Using one of my favorite (easy) apps I opened Adobe Spark and started finding great images of wonderful educators to share! And by no means is this list (see below) finished. It's also great to see state arts ed organizations highlighting Arts Ed Heros, help spread the word and let's grow the challenge! We'll continue to share throughout Youth Arts Month and we hope you will too!
