Blue River Cohort Workshops - January 2015
Becky Jorgenson brought a couple art workshops this past January to schools that co-op together with ESU 6 for personal development through "The Blue River Cohort"--Shickley, McCool Junction, Dorchester, Friend, and Exeter-Milligan.
The two artists facilitating workshops were Susan Hart, mixed media artist from Cozad, NE (www.susanhartart.com) and Patricia Scarborough, pastel and oil painting artist from Geneva, NE (www.pscarborougharts.com).
Since these workshops were a success, the Blue River Cohort schools' administrators and the ESU 6 personnel have given Becky a green light to invite other art teachers from towns in ESU 6 to join the next Blue River Cohort group in January 2016! Next Becky will work on securing one or two professional artists for this event, and compile a list of all ESU 6 art teachers to invite.
Thank you to our new ESU 6 liaison Becky Jorgenson for creating great opportunities for professional growth in the Blue River Area!
If you have professional growth stories to tell, please email your story and photos to Lynette.
