Art Education Zoom Series – August Session

Focus for August: Connect, Create, Collab
The goal of this session is to provide a space for arts educators who would like to take part in creating artwork together virtually. Connect, Create, Collab, is an opportunity for artmaking and informal art sharing facilitated by the conference committee chair Shannon Carey. There will also be time during the session to connect with other arts educators as well as engage collaboratively in conversation about the upcoming school year. At the conclusion of the session there will be time to share the artwork you have created during this session, or previously during the time span of the pandemic.

Art Education Zoom Series

About this Series: The MAEA Board of Directors has determined that a virtual conference in the fall of 2020 will not be beneficial for our membership for a number of factors, including the financial implications of the global pandemic and the virtual meeting fatigue many of us felt this spring. In place of the yearly fall conference, the MAEA Conference Committee is planning monthly Zoom conversations and virtual events for members that we are rolling out this summer. We believe that smaller virtual gatherings each month over the next year will help to minimize fatigue and provide the support our members need at this time.

Focus for July: Looking Inward – The goal of this session is to provide a space for arts educators who would like to reflect on their individual practices in response to the current Black Lives Matter Movement and how implicit bias perpetuates racism. This session is a personal reflection session facilitated by MAEA Board of Directors Laura Evonne Steinman and Melissa Mastrolia. They will be holding space for participants with exercises designed to help us look deeper at our own individual practices and reflect on our biases.

Conference 2020 Update

Planning was underway for the annual MAEA conference to be hosted at Worcester State University in the fall of 2020. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, on April 9, 2020, the MAEA Board of Directors voted to shift planning to a virtual conference for the 2020 annual MAEA conference.

The conference committee is currently researching and exploring options for this event and we would love your feedback. Please share your thoughts and ideas in this short survey. If you have questions please contact MAEA Conference Committee Chair, Shannon Carey.

We look forward to hosting an in-person event in the Worcester area in the future!
