Super Session Proposals

This year the Tennessee Art Education Association is requesting proposals for presentations at its annual conference from Pre-K-16 art educators, pre-service teachers, museum educators and the academic and administrative communities.  Super Sessions presentations should address one of the four areas of TAEA’s mission:  learning, community, advocacy, and research and learning, in addition to connecting directly to the conference theme, “Celebrating Community Through Art.” The conference is designed to present outstanding teaching models and provide an opportunity to learn new skills, to renew the attendee’s personal love of the arts through networking, creating works of art, and learning new teaching strategies.

If you are a current member of TAEA and would like to present a 50-minute session addressing one of the above areas, now is your chance during the 2018 TAEA State Conference at Arrowmont, Gatlinburg, November 1-3, 2018.  The Super Sessions will be held on Friday, November 2nd .
