Over the next few months, we will be posting details here specific to our next conference, including:

And all the other information you will need to know!


Conference Advocacy: Why attend conference?

Conference is one of the best way for art educators to recieve content specific professional development. The relationships you build through KyAEA can become your art teacher "village".  It is important to develop your Professional Learning Community, and as many of us are the sole art teacher in our building, KyAEA provides a way to build a content specific, high quality PLC.

Need help advocating for professional membership and conference attendance with administrators?

COMING SOON: A downloadable Advocacy Letter from our KyAEA President, Rachael Burriss.

Visit An Open Letter to Principals and School Leaders on the NAEA website.


Be a Session Presenter!

The beauty of conference is sharing our experience and learning from each other! Every art educator has an art lesson or classroom hack worth sharing. Please consider sharing your skills with us at conference, either in a hands on workshop, a demonstration session, a round table discussion, or even through a virtual presentation. There are lots of options to fit every type of idea. 

Additional bonus? Advocating for conference attendance is even easier if you are a conference presenter! Not only that, presenters get a discount on registration fees. 

Session Proposals for the Fall Conference will open in Spring 2024.
