CAEA Exemplary Programs

The Exemplary Visual Arts Program was initiated over a decade ago to honor and recognize, publicly, CAEA members and their exemplary programs in California schools, pre-Kindergarten through grade 12. Through the application and dissemination process, members will be able to describe the unique characteristics of their outstanding work and that of their students, with interested teachers, parents, administrators, school board members, and curriculum developers.

The purpose of Exemplary Visual Arts Program Award is to:

  • Honor CAEA members and their visual arts programs, Pre-K through Grade 12.

  • Inform others about these members and their programs.

  • Promote and expand opportunities for all students in California to receive diverse, yet exemplary visual art education programs.
