National Online Conference for Art Teachers

AOE Online Art Ed ConferenceThe first ever online con­fer­ence for Art edu­ca­tors is com­ing soon!

Jes­sica Balsey and her team at AOE (Art of Edu­ca­tion) have put together an excit­ing line up of high qual­ity pre­sen­ta­tions for this spe­cial event on Mon­day, June 25th — just for Art teach­ers. Each pre­sen­ta­tion will be short (about 10 min­utes, like a TED Talk), rel­e­vant, and inspir­ing. Pre­sen­ta­tions will cover a range of top­ics from “Pin­ter­est in the Art Room” to “Cross Cur­ric­u­lar Plan­ning” to “Adap­ta­tions for Stu­dents with Autism” and so much more. I’m hon­ored to also be a pre­sen­ter at this con­fer­ence with my topic, “Mas­ter­piece Mosaics”, where I’ll show you how you can have suc­cess with this fun, col­lab­o­ra­tive art project for all ages.

Each con­fer­ence attendee will receive a Cer­tifi­cate of Con­fer­ence Par­tic­i­pa­tion doc­u­ment­ing 6 hours of pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment time. If you can’t attend on June 25th, no wor­ries — as a paid attendee, you’ll have exclu­sive access to con­fer­ence pre­sen­ta­tions, hand­outs, videos, and more for a full year after the con­fer­ence through a pass­word pro­tected web page.

There will be a mix of live pre­sen­ta­tions, video pre­sen­ta­tions, and the abil­ity to chat live in real time with every pre­sen­ter to get your ques­tions answered. Some of your favorite Art Ed blog­gers will be pre­sent­ing! You can also inter­act in forums with other Art Teach­ers from around the coun­try and around the world.  There will be spe­cial give­aways and draw­ings.… you won’t want to miss it!

As a pre­sen­ter, I’ve had the priv­i­lege of a “sneak peak” at a few of the pre­sen­ta­tions, and they really are great! It was fun to finally “meet” some of the won­der­ful art teach­ers whose blogs I’ve been fol­low­ing for quite some time.

If you reg­is­ter by June 11th (tomor­row!) you’ll receive a spe­cial USPS mail­ing from Dick Blick which includes sup­plies for their inter­ac­tive pre­sen­ta­tion. The very last day you can reg­is­ter for the con­fer­ence is June 23rd, but sign­ing up now (by June 11th) will get you some extra stuff! It’s only $99, and it counts toward your pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment hours. So don’t miss out — reg­is­ter now!

    Hi Cheryl,
    I live in Canada and I was won­der­ing if you have many peo­ple who sign up for this con­fer­ence that live far away? Is this some­thing a per­son could learn from over the sum­mer months or would you need to be avail­able the day of?
    Thanks for your feed­back!

      Hi Kathy! The beauty of this event is that because it’s online, any­one can attend no mat­ter where they live! The pre­sen­ta­tions will all be avail­able on a pass­word pro­tected web­site for an entire year, so you can join us day of, or when­ever it’s con­ve­nient, and go back as often as you like! I’m impressed by the qual­ity and the amount of work that’s gone into this… I totally rec­om­mend it!!
