Jenna Fergus’ clothesline art was also selected this summer to hang in the prestigious Tennessee Arts Academy Fourth Annual TAEA Member Art Exhibition. Her work about legacy and hospitality showed throughout July and August in the Leu Visual Art Building on the campus of Belmont University. Jenna was honored to have been awarded third place from among the gifted artist-teachers of Tennessee.
Most recently though, the international organization, Art of Education chose Mrs. Fergus to be an ambassador. Jessica Balsley, creator and leader of the AOE is determined to offer the most accessible, practical and relevant professional development for art teachers available on the globe. Houston Levee elementary art teacher, Tonya Loyd, first introduced Fergus to the AOE conferences two summers ago. One conference and she was hooked. ArtofEd has now become a real encouragement for her as she goes about her daily routine offering 6 different levels of art in some 20 different media to over 120 students each day. Being selected to represent AOE is a joy because she gets to share her connections to relevant professional development with art educators all over the state of Tennessee.
We are so proud of you, Mrs. Fergus!
