On behalf of Art Educators of Iowa and the All-State Visual Art Awards Committee, congratulations and thank you to all nominees and nominating art educators. We appreciate the time and effort it takes to compile a portfolio and complete the submission process. Though we provide the opportunity to recognize students for outstanding work, it is the time, nurture, and support that individual teachers give students with potential that is most significant. Please, continue to participate and encourage other teachers in your district, region, and conference to become participating members. The more participants involved, the more students we can honor for their outstanding efforts.
This year, judging was completed by the following:
Clar Baldus – University of Iowa
Jan Dotzler – Creative Center – Omaha, NE
Rachel Beenken - Minneapolis College of Art and Design
Joseph Lappie – St. Ambrose University
The All-State Committee is pleased to announce this year’s top portfolios.
