Gerald Scheib, chairman of the Arts and Letters Department at Mission College, has been elected chairman of the Los Angeles County Art Education Council.

Scheib will serve a one-year term as head of the council, which oversees the establishment of state Department of Education guidelines for training art educators, said Ina Yates, a college spokeswoman.

The council is made up of 60 members representing private and public colleges and universities in L.A. County, Yates said.

Scheib has been a Mission College art teacher since 1977, Yates said. He is also a past president of the college's Academic Senate, a board that plays a major role in college governance.

The Sylmar resident was selected Outstanding Higher Education Art Educator for 1994-95 by the California Art Education Assn., Yates said. He has been a member of the association for 33 years and served as the group's president in 1992.

Also in 1992, Scheib was among a group of educators selected by the state Department of Education to analyze recommendations for "Strengthening the Arts in California Schools: A Design for the Future," a study funded jointly by the Department of Education and the Getty Center for Education in the Arts, Yates said.
