PROFESSIONAL AWARD WINNERS FOR 2012
“Many students at a young age decide that they cannot draw, and cut themselves off from a vital form of communication. Drawing not only improves perception, it also empowers students to view their world from multiple perspectives. My goal is to help students conquer their fear of embarrassment over lack of skills, and instill confidence and boldness to embrace art. Like the vases/faces figure/ground reversal, I believe that once students’ eyes are open to art’s power, they are forever changed.
With direction, practice, and the inspiration from our cultures, I hope that students will realize that they do not need to deny themselves access to visual communication to express their ideas.”

Ruth Jansen Award
Every year CAEA gives out one to three Ruth Jansen Awards who receive a cash award. The funding for this award is provided by a special memorial trust fund established in memory of Ruth Jansen by her family, friends, and the community. We are grateful for the support and recognition this has provided for professional educators since 1983. There is also a special award given to one senior high school YAM winner from each Area.
