OAEAOregon Art Education Association

Calling ALL Presenters:

Do you have a something new, fun, and exciting that you’d like to share with art educators from across the state? A lesson, technique, process, or method which others could benefit from hearing?
Present at our state conference, October 14th - 15th, 2016!

OAEA invites you to connect with your fellow education professionals through the sharing of ideas and practices. The theme for this year’s conference is: OAEA is My Community. As art educators, many of us are often isolated in our buildings, misunderstood by our co-workers, struggling to be heard by administration. OAEA is how we support each other. OAEA is a place where we know we will find like-minded individuals who share our passion, creativity, and resourcefulness.

We’re looking for engaging and diverse presentations which:

  • Showcase strategies for designing curriculum and assessment that supports art standards;
  • Are project- or challenge-based;
  • Inspire leadership among art educators and/or students;
  • Engage in meaningful debate and dialogue about emerging issues and trends in the field of art education; or
  • Present diverse ideas in response to the idea of Community.

Submit your proposal by Sunday, July 31, 2016, by filling out one (or more) of these applications:

Friday, October 14th 1-hour Presentation

Friday, October 14th 2-hour Presentation

Saturday, October 15th 3-hour Presentation

Saturday, October 15th 6-hour Presentation

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing what you have to share!

-The 2016 Conference Committee
