Keynote: Kris Musto

How can art teachers build strong technical skills while simultaneously fostering a passion for conceptual thinking? How do we engage art students with relevant, current and instructive information? How can we continue to inspire them to think and make? We'll explore a collection of fresh resources and ideas for generating curriculum, assignments, inspiration and encouragement.

As the Secondary Outreach Coordinator and Principal Admissions Counselor for the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Kris Musto spends the school year traveling and working closely with art teachers and students in high school art classrooms around the country. Kris graduated with a BFA from MCAD and has worked in Admissions for 18 years. In between taking trips and making things, Kris teaches workshops on book binding, altered books, soft sculpture, intuitive drawing and developing a portfolio for art school.
