2018 Allan Perkins Undergrad/Graduate Scholarships:

Allan Perkins will always be remembered as a dedicated friend to the Kentucky Art Education Association. 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 these scholarships, the KyAEA honors Allan’s involvement in our organization, and his 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.

KyAEA offers two scholarships to eligible students who are completing either their undergraduate or graduate degrees. If you are interested in applying, please complete the attached application and email to Ilona Szekely by TBD.

Artisan Sale Participant

As a part of each KYAEA Conference, an Artisan Sale is hosted onsite to provide our educators with an opportunity to sell their work! Anything and everything is welcome and it's a chance to show off your beautiful work!

We only ask that each artist participating in the Artisan Sale also donate an item into the silent auction that helps fund our undergraduate and graduate scholarships!

If you need additional information or would like to participate, please email Cayce Davenport to reserve your spot.

Silent Auction

The silent auction directly funds our KyAEA Scholarships each year for our undergraduate and graduate students. Each region is responsible for putting together a "region basket" for the silent auction and members are invited to donate items for the auction as well. If you are interested in donating to your regional basket or donating items, please email Susan Hawkins.


Teacher/Student Conference Art Show

Every year at the KyAEA Fall Conference, there is an AMAZING student show that exhibits everything students have created thus far! This year is no different, but we have some more detailed instructions along with gallery tags and forms to help the process run smoothly. Please also note that the cost to participate in the student/teacher show is $10, to be paid at the registration table at conference.

**NEW FOR 2018** Approved conference presenters will have the $10.00 student art show fee waived as an incentive for sharing your expertise at our 2018 fall conference!

This is a chance to sing the praises of your students and gain some instant recognition for them (and possibly even a medal)! Along with the student show, teachers have the option to submit some of their own work into a teacher competition which adds a fun element into the process. This is a great opportunity if you missed the deadline for the juried teacher show!

The attached packet addresses both the student show and the educator awards, please be sure to read each page in its entirety.
