McGee Named to School for Art Leaders at Crystal Bridges

Kelley McGee Congratulations to Kelley Quinn McGee (Adkins ES) on her acceptance to the National Art Education Association (NAEA) flagship program, School for Art Leaders at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.


Since 1947, art educators representing all states, regions, and work contexts have provided volunteer leadership service that has shaped the field of art education and positioned the National Art Education Association (NAEA) as the premier professional community for art educators. Committed to supporting art educators in their quest to excel as leaders, NAEA has designed a 21st-century flagship program: School for Art Leaders. Utilizing experiential, action learning modules and in-depth conversations with expert leaders, the program provides participants with learning experiences and skills to successfully lead in any environment.


Those selected for each class annually contribute to the development of an extraordinary community cohort committed to leadership excellence. Upon successful completion, participants become members of the national School for Art Leaders network and are positioned to excel as leaders in education, the arts, and advocacy.


Mrs. McGee is the first Denton ISD visual arts faculty member to be included in this unique growth experience.
