2014 CÆA Fall Conference
General Sessions: Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Keynote Speakers
Pat Franklin,
NAEA President-Elect
atricia “Pat” Franklin,
and Supervisor of Fine Arts
Newport News Public Schools,
Newport News, Virginia, believes that all people deserve
and benefit from experiences
in the arts, and that art educators, with the support of
NAEA, are significant contributors to the education of all
people. “I visualize the future of NAEA as a driving force
in advocating for the arts and building a professional
community of art educators who value diversity and
expertise.” Franklin says that NAEA’s vision is supported by a strategic plan, and member input, communication, and implementation of this plan are vital
components to NAEA’s successful growth. “Appreciation of cultural diversity and cultivation of understanding is promoted through arts education. It is through
the arts that 21st Century skills are utilized and given
an environment to flourish. As an educational organization we have a responsibility to promote the value
of all art forms, with an emphasis on the visual arts.”
“My vision for NAEA is molded by my personal
career in art education. I have had the challenge and pleasure of teaching art at every grade level from PreK through
college. I understand the pedagogy required based in
first-hand experiences in diverse venues including public
and private schools, museums, universities, and online.
As a Fine Arts supervisor, I know the impact of current
trends relating to student assessment and teacher evaluations. I relate to our basic common beliefs and the diverse
needs of the membership of NAEA. We are a versatile
combination of individuals with a common belief in the
value of visual arts education. It is this core belief that
shapes our organization and my vision for our future.”
Ellen Griesedieck,
American Mural Project
llen Griesedieck is a Connecticut-based artist and
the driving force behind “The American Mural Project”. The American Mural Project is a massive three-dimensional painting that was conceived by Griesedieck to pay
tribute to working Americans. The work is approximately 120 feet long, five stories high and up to 10 feet deep
and will ultimately comprise the work of over 10,000
students from diverse communities across the country.
The project is a hybrid work of art that contains images
by Griesedieck as well as colorful contributions made by
groups of youngsters nationwide. Griesedieck, who has
been working on the mural/sculpture for more than 15
years, declares the painting is coming together in pieces in a section of two former mill buildings in Winsted,
Conn. “It’s a sort of Mount Rushmore of regular people rather than four great presidents,” says Griesedieck.
When completed, The American Mural Project will be one
of the largest indoor collaborative artwork in the world. “It
started out as me just making something big so that people would take notice, and now it’s developed into something to which many wonderful people have contributed.”
Prior to Griesedieck’s involvement with the American Mural Project, she has been a photographer for People,
Sports Illustrated and
Road and Track magazines. She has exhibited
in Connecticut, New
York and Paris, and received commissions from
Times Mirror Magazines,
CBS Television, and General Motors, as well as
many other major corporate sponsors. For
