Best Practices in Advocacy for Fine Arts Education
Transcript of Best Practices in Advocacy for Fine Arts Education
- Dr. Chuck Waggoner, Ph.D. talking about New Mexico http://www.hobbsschools.net/department/FineArts/elementary_fine_arts_blog/ When building systems that include the arts, model what an art teacher teaches students about the arts. “If we really want kids to be educated, we need them to be creative.
You look back to Da Vinci and Michelangelo were artists and that is what made them great inventors and thinkers…
They imagined what had not been imagined before.”
-Governor Mike Huckabee Play to your strengths... ...and shore up your weaknesses
by asking for help from the community. Play nice with the other kids.
Collaborations Community mission revolving around an understanding of schools as the common DNA that ties the community together. Whatever, your district’s investment
in your program...
Be efficient with the funding.
Show a product. Develop a measurement tool. Exhibits Portfolio Performances https://sites.google.com/site/mrsbondsclassroom/home Surveys Have a K-12 Focus Community support should match the school support strength for strength – "Now this is the Law of the Jungle—as old and as true as the sky… For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack."
- Rudyard Kipling Work with all schools. Especially schools interested in enhancing their curriculum through the arts. Mission Stand up for fine arts subjects as a vital part of the overall curriculum. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure."
- Nelson Mandela Target your existing resources. This will buy you time when developing your undeveloped areas in the curriculum. http://www.hobbsschools.net/department/FineArts/ Schools interested in enhancing their curriculum with fine arts School Owned Theaters Local Community Theaters Local Art Gallery and Training Facilities Local Art Museums Fine Arts Education Act of New Mexico "The arts can no longer be treated as a frill."
- US Education Secretary Arne Duncan's Remarks at the Arts Education Partnership National Forum April 9, 2010 Study the history of your community and state. "Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them."

Elementary Fine Arts Coordinator
Hobbs Municipal Schools http://www.hobbsschools.net/department/FineArts/ http://prezi.com/al1ut6sgaup5/strategic-plan-for-elementary-fine-arts-at-hobbs-municipal-schools/ Tyson Ledgerwood Biography
Tyson Ledgerwood lives in Hobbs, New Mexico, with his wife and two Papillion dogs (Teddy and Honey Bunn). He is thirty-six years old. He is currently working in the Hobbs Municipal School District as the Elementary Fine Arts Coordinator and managing the Tydings Auditorium and the Training Center.
Mr. Ledgerwood is originally from Cheyenne, Wyoming. He left home to pursue a career in K-12 art education. His artist portfolio has cataloged the different times in his life at this link: https://sites.google.com/site/tysonledgerwoodportfolio/home .
Tyson has earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Art and Education from Harding University in 1998, and attended college abroad in Florence, Italy, in the summer of 1998. He also earned a Masters in Education in 2003 from Harding University.
Tyson Ledgerwood has taught art for nine years in public and private schools in elementary through high school levels. His current job involves advocating and developing new and innovative elementary school programs in visual art, music, theatre arts and dance. He coordinates the programming with funding created by the Fine Arts Education Act of New Mexico.
In the three and a half years Mr. Ledgerwood has been in the district, the schools have created some ground breaking programs that have caught the attention of the state and beyond. Tyson has presented frequently at the annual Public Education Department Humanities Conference in Santa Fe. He has spoken at the New Mexico Art Education Association’s Conference in Santa Fe and Riudoso and the National Art Education Association’s Conference in Seattle last school year. He has also been invited to speak this year in New York at the National Art Education Association’s Conference.
Hobbs and New Mexico have received this national attention because of active arts programming in the schools; stable funding in a statute called the Fine Arts Education Act; and our program’s ability to reach out to community interests like the Southwest Symphony, Community Playhouse, the Western Heritage Museum, the Center for the Arts and other local entities to round out our efforts and build partnerships that have exponential potential in the future.
Hobbs Municipal Schools Elementary Fine Arts Program’s activities are chronicled on the fine arts home page at this link: http://hobbsschools.net/department/FineArts/ . If people want to know what Tyson really thinks about the importance of the arts, they can read his blog archived since the beginning of the recession of 2008 at this link: http://www.hobbsschools.net/department/FineArts/elementary_fine_arts_blog/ .
Mr. Ledgerwood has recently taken over the responsibilities of managing the Tydings Auditorium and Training Center. He looks forward to working with the schools and community to make those facilities first class and part of the development of arts and culture in the city of Hobbs.
Currently, Tyson is pursuing getting a license in administration because many of his colleagues and administrators have encouraged him and this will allow the schools to take the elementary arts program to the next level. Tyson Ledgerwood is honored to be part of conversation about the future of the arts and culture in New Mexico.
