I would like to personally invite you to McCook for the 2016 Fall Conference. McCook is a small, but progressive community, with a fun downtown, restaurants and wonderful people. We are thrilled to share the state’s only Frank Lloyd Wright designed house with you and are very excited about our keynote speaker, Kenneth Shelton from LA, who will inspire us to “inspire” our students with technology and 21st century thinking!
Please consider presenting for us! Our theme of, Connections By Design, is open to many interpretations. Do you have a wonderful hands-on project that teaches the Elements and Principles of Design in an unique way? How about Architecture and Interior Design? We design our curriculum around “big ideas” and our spaces to make learning easier. We design technology to work for us. We “design” everything!
We will have the Art Educator show on McCook Community College campus in the Wrightstone Gallery. Did you know MCC is the oldest community college in Nebraska? The show will be open to the public and publicized in the local paper. Instructor, Rick Johnson, PhD., our judge will give a wonderful critique--he always does and is much admired in our community.
So please consider presenting and/or attending our conference. We are working hard to make it a fun and inspiring experience for everyone! Hope to see you in McCook.
