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 November: Artist Show & Tell
The goal of this session is to provide a space for arts educators who would like to share information, lessons, and learning opportunities dedicated to contemporary artists. Artist Show & Tell is an opportunity for an informal discussion, brainstorming, and sharing facilitated by the conference committee chair Shannon Carey.
Please ‘bring’ a contemporary artist you would like to share with the group. We hope participants will be able to share how you have or plan to use this artist in your curriculum, along with where someone would be able to find more information about the artist (artist website, Instagram, museum exhibit information). We would appreciate it if you are also prepared to share at least one image of the artist’s work.
There will also be time during the session to connect with other arts educators as well as engage collaboratively in conversation about the 2020-2021 school year.
Date: Thursday, November 10 2020
Time: 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. ET
Where: Zoom (Link will be provided after sign-up via email)
For our Art Education Zoom series, we will continue to work on intentional topics as a way to facilitate impactful conversations within our membership and beyond. There will be a feedback form shared at the close of this session to provide participants the opportunity to share where they would like to go next. More information about future sessions and programming are forthcoming. If you have questions or suggestions for this series, please contact Shannon Carey, MAEA Conference Committee Chair.
