This November, join hundreds of your colleagues at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in San Francisco for the annual gathering of visual art educators and advocates for two days of rigorous, collaborative, and inspiring professional learning.



KEYNOTE - Olivia Gude               Educator               Artist

Professor Gude has created many award-winning collaborative mural and mosaic projects. In recent years, she has united her work as a community artist and as an art educator by creating participatory spaces in which teachers investigate and re-invent the social practices of art education.
