An Exciting Day for The Art Team

You can enjoy a full day of artmaking and discussion with your district art team. Districts have access to special team pricing, meaning you won’t have to pay out of pocket.

Why every art teacher should attend:

  • Highly-engaging, fast-paced TED Talk-style presentations full of real-world, practical art room strategies.
  • Connect with over 2,000 art teachers from around the world!
  • Zero travel costs: no hotels, no gas, no food stipends. Attend from home in your PJs if you want!
  • Enjoy it live or watch later at your own pace for an entire year using the conference AOEU After Pass, included with every registration.
  • Over 20 highly-practical and relevant art ed presentations, handpicked and expertly curated by AOEU.
  • Thousands of dollars worth of giveaways, freebies, handouts, product samples, and more from art ed companies you love!
  • Inspirational messages from big-name presenters you know and love including authors, bloggers, artists, and other art ed leaders.
  • Useful downloads, which accompany every presentation, ensure you can actually put the tips and strategies you learn to use right away in your real-world art room.
  • Every attendee receives an official certificate for 8 PD hours.
  • The first 2,000 art teachers to register by December 15th receive a full box of art ed goodies, supplies, product samples, and art materials, delivered directly to your door.
