The application window extends from April 1–30, 2019.  Presenters will be notified before the end of May.

The deadline to submit a 2019 conference workshop proposal has been extended to 11:55 p.m. on Friday, May 10.

It takes a minimum of 24 hours from the time someone joins or renews an NAEA/CAEA membership for CAEA to receive the data for our membership files. Please keep this in mind when timing the submission of your workshop proposal, as you will need to log in with your current CAEA username and password before you can submit a proposal. Do not wait until the last minute to join or renew.

Workshops sessions will take place on Friday, November 15, Saturday, November 16, and Sunday November 17, 2019.


Click on the link below to submit a 2019 conference workshop proposal; you may submit up to four separate proposals. 


By submitting a proposal, you are agreeing to register for the conference either as a conference participant or conference exhibitor and return all paperwork by the presenter registration deadline. If we do not receive your registration and paperwork by the deadline, your presentation may be placed on a waiting list. 

Presenters and co-presenters must be current CAEA members or registered 2019 conference exhibitors to submit proposals, so please check your membership status before applying. Students co-presenting with instructors must be current CAEA Preservice members.

CAEA is unable to provide stipends for presenters or materials for workshops. Presenting a session at the conference is an opportunity to build your professional resumé and share your work with our larger professional community.  However, all accepted presenters will receive a discounted registration rate for the conference.

Please read through each section in the proposal form carefully and review your work before submitting. It is highly recommended that you write your proposal in another program first, then copy and paste into the required sections to avoid the application timing out.

All proposal submissions should receive an email acknowledging receipt. If you do not receive one, please email Kristin Taylor at [email protected], as you may need to re-submit the proposal.


Proposals will be blind peer reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers and scored based on the following criteria (1 = low, 5 = high)

  • Title: Does the title clearly reflect the content of the proposal?

  • Clarity: Is the proposal clearly written in 3rd person point of view? Does the proposal meet the minimum word requirement?

  • Content: Is the content/topic of the proposal clear? Is the content clear regarding participant engagement?

  • Relevance: Is the proposal reflective of 21st century art education? (i.e. connections to the new CA VA Standards, contemporary artistic practice, digital or visual literacy, collaboration, community, service learning, etc.)

  • Outcomes/Goals: Does the proposal clearly state the intended outcomes/goals indicating how participants will be able to use the information from the session?


*All workshop rooms will be equipped with LCD Projectors, screens, speaker capability, and WiFi. Please bring any devices for projecting and necessary connector cables/dongles, in addition to any materials and tools required for hands-on activities.
