Here are my wonderful students, art teachers all, from as far away as Homer to Fairbanks, Alaska, showing partially finished work from the Sunday morning class. At the 2008 Alaska Art Education Association Fall Conference in Wasilla, I enjoyed helping my students with composition, color, values, texture, and anything else I could throw at them using reference material from the Alaska Museum of Transportation and Industry. No easy subject matter for this group. And, they stood up to the challenge, boy did they ever! I am so proud of the quality of art teachers in Alaska, and the talent that they have. It was an honor and a pleasure to work together with them. Best wishes for a successful year to all of you!
