Two recipients of the 2018 Governor's Arts Awards will be honored for their commitment to arts education.
Dr. F. Robert Sabol is recognized among the most talented, skillful, and knowledgeable arts educators in the nation. He began his career as a K-6 art teacher in his hometown of Crawfordsville, Indiana. Following doctoral studies at Indiana University, D. Sabol became interested in deeper research into arts education assessment involving large group studies.
