One of our alumni, Chris Mostyn, has been awarded the “Excellence in PK-12 Art Education Award” by the United States Society for Education through Art (USSEA). This USSEA award is presented to a Pk-12 art educator who has demonstrated leadership in and commitment to multicultural, cross-cultural educational strategies in their school/s and communities.
This art educator actively implements an approach that builds respect for human dignity and diversity through art. The teacher must be a member of NAEA and USSEA to be recognized for their contributions. Their work must be confluent with the mission of USSEA, which is to foster “teamwork, collaboration, and communication among diverse constituencies in order to achieve greater understanding of the social and cultural aspects of art and visual culture in education.”
The award’s presentation will be made at the National Art Education Association convention in Seattle in March.
