Teacher notices, directions and procedures
Greetings art teachers across the Concept Schools buildings! I’m Jennifer Cooper, and it is my pleasure to again head the Concept Art Show team for the 2017-2018 year with Mr. Uslu and a team of two other great Cleveland area Concept art teachers: Claire Vien and Erin Anderson.
The art show will again be during the CONSEF Science Fair in Cleveland at the Cleveland Convention Center. Artwork will go up Friday, April 6th and come down Saturday, April 7th after the fair is completed. NEW this year: we will have judging! There will be a best in show, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each of the three categories of K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. ALSO NEW: to bridge the art and science together in the same venue, we will have STEAM based art/craft project making available during the Saturday event! Please as you start picking work, think about bringing a group of students to this event as well…field trip! Artworks will go on to Chicago and hang a second time for the Art and Language Contest in May. So if that venue is closer for you, consider going to that event to see your artwork up! After that event, works will be sent back to your schools. If you or colleagues from your school can pick them up while competing in Chicago and take back to your schools, your works will return to you faster!
We need to make the artwork look as professional and similar as possible. Two things I am asking additionally for the display of your work are:
Please follow: Student Name (A)
Grade level (B)
School Name (D)
Medium used (G)
Letters here will correspond with the shared spreadsheet that you will also be filling out.

Posters for you to display are attached so that you can print them. These are meant to get your students excited about the event in your schools. We will also create a printed booklet for the event, and will have certificates of participation available after the show. Booklets will be available if you come to the show on April 7th. Ribbons, certificates and booklet copies will be sent with returned work after second venue.
**A reminder, this is a juried/judged show which will include best in show, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for each ago category (K-4, 5-8, 9-12). Gift cards and ribbons will be provided.
Due dates: Please fill out the shared google spreadsheet with your 5 works and also send your works by March 23rd!
