SAA Bulletin - Happy Holidays!
In this issue…

The SAA Annual Report was mailed out to all members last week. Happy reading!
SAA Releases Discussion Paper on Arts Education
You can now access the discussion paper When Artists Go to School: Effective Teacher-Artist Partnerships in K-12 Schools on the SAA website. The focus of this paper, commissioned by the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance and written by Dianne Warren, is on co-designed teacher-artist partnership projects that take place primarily in classrooms. The working relationship between teachers and artists has been identified as a key factor in achieving long-term impact, but questions remain about what an effective partnership entails, and what can be built into such programs to encourage effective partnerships. This qualitative study also includes recommendations for arts, education and culture partners.
Art Works - Art Gallery of Swift Current
Last month SAA launched a new series promoting our members. Each month SAA will publish an article highlighting an arts organization making a positive impact in its community. For December, writer Carle Steel tells us about her visit to the Art Gallery of Swift Current last Canada Day. Enjoy!
