2020 Conference Update

We hope this letter finds you and your family both well and safe. The California Art Education Association will be going virtual with numerous events to provide the professional development and networking that we all need. We are starting with frequent smaller online events (see our 2020 Pre-conference Virtual Events webpage), and then will be holding our state conference in the fall, which we are reformatting to be either virtual or hybrid.

This will be a huge shift in our organization. Still, we believe it can be a huge opportunity to interact with more members in a variety of ways. Our first goal is to begin with weekly "Cocktail Parties", some of which will be online micro-workshops for which we will be sending out small supply kits for registered participants. Each week will have a focus group, but the party will be open to all until our Zoom space is full. Watch emails and Facebook for information.

Watch for future emails about the fall conference, which will include information about pricing, registration, and the updated conference schedule. Workshops will still be a part of the conference experience, and the conference workshop chair will be sending out new proposals to meet this change. Stay posted on our 2020 Conference Workshops webpage.

Keep calm, stay safe, and DO ART!!
