Region One Art Educator of the Year- 2016

Connie Lavelle--R1 Art Educator of the Year 2016

Connie Lavelle, Fredonia High School

It is with sincere appreciation that we announce our regional art educator of the year...Connie Lavelle.  Connie's experience in the art room, leadership in the art field/NYSATA Region One, and achievement as a Nationally Board Certified teacher make her a perfect recipient of this 

Each of NYSATA's ten regions chooses one outstanding art educator to be awarded at the annual conference. The nominee must be a NYSATA member in good standing. Criteria include outstanding contributions to the field of art education and service to the regional and state organization.  Connie is most fitting of this designation and we look forward to celebrating this achievement on November 20th in Albany, NY.



New York State School Board Association ART show- Oct. 27-29, 2016

Just a heads-up.  The NYS School Board Association will hold their annual conference at the Buffalo Convention Center October 27-29th.  This an excellent way to get your school boards to see your student’s art work!  NYSATA will be sending out information on submitting your student work very soon.  We encourage you to participate!

On the same note, Region one will be hosting this show.  It means we will be coordinating art work submissions from across the state, setting up the show, hosting a small reception, and returning the work safely to their owners.  PLEASE consider helping with this show.  We will share more information as the show comes closer.
