The KyAEA Silent Auction at Conference:

Raising Funds for the Allan Perkins Scholarship

Every year, KyAEA holds a Silent Auction of donated items to raise funds for our Allan Perkins Scholarship during our fall conference. This scholarship provides funding for an undergraduate Art Education major or post-baccalaureate student enrolled in a non-master’s Art Education certification program in Kentucky. 


Allan Perkins will always be remembered as a dedicated friend to KyAEA. He was instrumental in developing our original website and making it a valuable resource for educators all over the country. In the countless long hours that he volunteered, his smiling face was always there to greet art educators as he welcomed members to each year’s fall conference.  


Through offering two Allan Perkins Art Education Scholarships, KyAEA honors Allan and his family’s continued involvement in our organization and their commitment to and belief in the vital role that art education can play in all lives. May his gentle and generous spirit continue to help others.


Directions and forms for submitting donations to the Silent Auction will be provided here in the months leading up to conference.
