You're invited to join author Rachel Branham, Friday evening, April 21st, to celebrate her book What's So Great About Art Anyway?: A Teacher's Odyssey in Portland, Maine!
In this graphic novel, Branham advocates for art education in school, while also providing a rationale for how art education can play a part in enhancing education curricula in the common core era, and provides a succinct look at art education and its history and function in the American education system in the form of a graphic novel. At the center of the work is Branham's memoir as a young art teacher, which gives the reader a look into her classroom and shows them how education policy affects teachers. Branham weaves her narrative as an art teacher, discussions of advocacy and education policy, and a brief look at the history of art education together to create a work that provides readers with a compelling look into the state of art education.
