Beth Burkhauser and George Barbolish, International Interdependence Hexagon Project Co-Chairs, just returned from the National Art Ed conference held at the Hilton in NYC this weekend! What a great opportunity to spread the word about Interdependence and the Hexagon Project - A Social Justice Art Education Model! So many people are interested and enthusiastic! We were able to connect with Mousumi De and Dr. Marjorie Manifold and Dr. Steve Willis and we will be taking the project international at the USSEA/InSEA Conference in June in Indianopolis! We also introduced this Weebly blog to those who attended our presentation and invited all to get involved. If you look carefully at the images below, you will notice that they were taken as we explained about the Hexagon Project Blog on Weebly!
Dick Blick, Amaco, Ceramic Supply and INOVART, Printmaking Supplier, will now be sponsors -plus possibly others! Very exciting news! It is encouraging to know that what we believe to be important is finding a receptive audience and the Interdependence Hexagon Project is spreading!

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.
