Dr. Michael Day, Professor Emeritus, Brigham Young University, will deliver an invited
lecture at the Second Global Chinese Art Education Symposium in Nanjing, China,
October 28, 2010. The title of Professor Day’s address is, “New Media in Art Education,”
in which he discusses advances in the use of computers and an array of digital media and
technology for art education. Featured in his presentation are art teachers, Tricia
Fuglestad of Dryden Elementary School, Arlington Heights, Illinois; Michael Weininger,
Bearden Middle School, Knoxville, Tennessee; Brad Asay, Mound Fort Middle School,
and Christian Fasy, Mount Ogden Middle School, both in Ogden, Utah. These teachers
are pioneers in the use of digital technology for art education, both for the creation of art
by students and for instructional purposes in the use of interactive smart boards, video
production, and networking with Skype technology. In his remarks to 200 Chinese art
educators, Day will include photographs of the teachers in action, videos made in the
classroom, and examples of computer generated art by students. Professor Day has
lectured previously in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea.
Michael Day is the co-author of Children and their Art: Methods for Elementary School.
Tricia Fuglestad and her student’s work will be among those featured in the new section
on digital media when the ninth edition of this academic textbook is released in October
