Monthly News from the President's Palette
As we move into the holiday season, I am once again reminded of the impact we have as art educators to help bring joy to our students. The word joy comes from Old French ( joie ) which was based on the Latin word gauderie, meaning rejoice. Many of you may have been rejoicing to have a bit of a break to celebrate Thanksgiving with loved ones and to recharge spirit and energy for our last burst of teaching before heading into the holidays and the new year. Just remember that so often, art experiences and classes are the joy in the life of a student. We are tasked with holding a space for students and learners that uplifts, encourages, supports, and provides a moment to rejoice in the everyday world. Move into this final month of 2019 with enthusiasm and wonder for the small and large moments of joy that are cultivated with students and learners in your daily lessons.  

It has been an honor to serve as the FAEA President. This organization has provided the opportunity for me to grow as a leader, visionary, and advocate in arts education, and has brought me such joy. The Board of Directors has been a group of dedicated, hardworking, thoughtful, and inspired leaders to take our association into 2020 with organizational health and vibrancy. I can’t wait to see how we will continue to grow our membership, programming, and impact for art education throughout the state of Florida in this next decade under the leadership of Dr. Jackie Henson-Dacey and a dynamite group of new board members. 

If you are interested in becoming more involved with FAEA, I encourage you to email .  There are many opportunities for service, leadership, volunteerism, and collaboration.  

Have a joyful December and a wonderful holiday season!
