‘365 Artists 365 Days Project’ connects students with artists across the globe

The 365 Artists 365 Days Project – created by WEAC Region 3 member Frank Juarez of Sheboygan North High School – highlights contemporary artists from across the globe through an online interview platform. Since its inception in 2014, it has introduced artists on a daily basis via online and social media. To date, the 365 Artists 365 Days Project has featured over 700+ artists working in various media, processes, and studio practices.

Juarez has shared the story of his success with the 365 Artists 365 Days Project in a column distributed by the Department of Public Instruction via its ConnectEd newsletter.

Juarez, who was selected as the 2015 Wisconsin Art Educator of the Year by the Wisconsin Art Education Association, is an art teacher at Sheboygan North High School and is a committed and involved advocate for the arts and arts education. He is a member of the Sheboygan Education Association and WEAC Region 3. Juarez serves as the Sheboygan Area School District Art Department Chair, a North High School Learning Leader, a Professional Development Plan reviewer and the Secondary-level Art Liaison. He has established an Artist-in-Residence program at North High School, created the North High School Art Gallery, and is the co-advisor of the North High Art Club.
