I'm so looking forward to the Art of Education Winter Conference this weekend. Have you signed up? My position at school is still part time, so I haven't been able to swing traveling to the NAEA conventions when they are far away. I LOVED going to NYC in 2012! I can't wait for it to come back to the east coast.
If you are an art teacher with a limited budget and/or schedule, or if you would like to have more professional development experiences specifically for our subject matter, I highly recommend an AOE conference!
will be my 3rd conference and I always walk away inspired, informed, and
equipped with new classroom strategies, lesson plans, and ways to
reflect on and improve my teaching and my students' successes! Oh, and
since it's online, I can go back and re-watch my favorite presenters, or
things I may have wanted to see more closely as speakers were
I also just got my box of AOE Swag, which I received for registering early! I will have materials at the ready for experiencing new materials and techniques, and have some freebies to try out on my own. Woo hoo! I hope to spend some virtual time with you this weekend! See you there.
And if you're not registered for the conference, just go visit their site! There are loads of articles and short videos on all things art education!
