MAEA Art Exhibits: Educator and Student

October 15, 2012

MAEA member opportunities

EDUCATOR EXHIBITS

One of the benefits of being a member of the Maine Art Education Association (MAEA) is that the professional organization offers opportunities to exhibit artwork for teachers and for students. During October MAEA partnered with Maine College of Art (MECA) for an exhibit at MECA that was fantastic. MAEA member and art teacher from Brunswick High School Allison Price is the present coordinator for the member art exhibits and is dedicated to offering outstanding exhibit opportunities. Allison worked with Jane Dalton and Kelly McConnell from MECA to arrange for the recent show and I understand, will again next fall. There are two more exhibit opportunities planned for teachers this calendar year in other venues. If you are a member of MAEA you invited to participate. Please contact Allison for the details. If you are not a member you might want to consider joining by contacting the MAEA membership chair Constance Panetski.
