Kansas Art Education Association Annual Conference

Art educators unite in the “Arts District” on campus as JCCC celebrates its 50th anniversary. Explore the campus, develop relationships with JCCC staff and faculty, and gain experiences that will aid in your teaching practice for years to come. Create and expand your knowledge in a wide variety of workshops instructed by exemplary educators in the art community.

Enjoy the members art exhibit, peruse the suitcase sale or bid on a silent-auction item. In addition to this array of artistic happenings, help us honor art educators from across the state as they are recognized by their peers at the awards ceremony.

Connect with contemporary artists, respond to diversity and ponder permanent collections and special exhibitions. Our keynote speaker is Seattle-based artist Preston Singletary, whose Tlingit heritage is evident in his 2007 glass Raven Steals the Moon, featured in the Nerman Museum’s permanent collection.
