Message from a Colleague
My name is Heather, and I will be presenting my master¹s research paper on factors contributing to adolescent male participation and motivation in the middle school studio classroom at the upcoming 2014 NAEA convention in San Diego.  Because my district was only able to fund the cost of registration, I have launched a crowd funding campaign to help defray the cost of travel and lodging expenses.  This is an amazing professional opportunity to share my findings with art educators from across the county, and I hope you will be able to forward my GoFundMe page to donors who may be interested in supporting research and advocacy in visual art ed.  Thank you for your time and support ­ if you have any questions, please let me know. https://sites.google.com/site/boysmakeart http://www.gofundme.com/6d1ios
