Schell Elementary School Art Teacher Garners 2nd Consecutive National Award
for Texas Art Educators Association for its Youth Art Month Scrapbook
Congratulations to Plano ISD’s Alisa Meli, art specialist at Schell Elementary School,
who submitted the Texas Art Educators Association’s (TAEA) Youth Art Month’
Scrapbook to a national art committee, capturing a 2nd consecutive national award for the
state’s Youth Art Month projects and programs.
A committee comprising representatives of The Council for Art Education, Inc., The Art
& Creative Materials Institute, the National Art Education Association (NAEA), and
other interested parties reviewed the TAEA 2010 YAM report/scrapbook and voted to
award Texas the “Award of Excellence” for outstanding participation in the 2010
observance of Youth Art Month.
The scrapbook highlights the incredible art programs and celebrations that happen in
Texas schools during Youth Art Month. The award was presented at the NAEA
conference in Seattle in March, and the winning scrapbook will be on display at the state
association’s conference to be held in November in Austin.
