For the 2011-2012 school year, I was selected as the undergraduate editor for Concordia University’s InARTE Journal.
Excerpt from my editorial:
“The idea that language can be multifaceted and individualized to both the learner and the educator helped to formulate the theme for the second issue of the InARTE Journal: The one hundred languages of Art Education. Over the course of the 2011-2012 school year, our team of editors worked to extend the concept of multiple languages from the realm of early childhood education to the realm of art education for learners of all ages. Each page of the journal has been framed to reflect the individual journeys of art educators as they discover their languages and roles as artists, educators, and researchers in the growing field of art education. As the lead editor of the second installment, I have grown to cherish and value the InARTE Journal as a forum for art educators to showcase their unique languages of art education, creating a community of passionate people who can think and create outside of the box of education. After all, we are the educators who take pride in being a horse of a different color and an artist who paints without a brush.”
