The North Carolina Art Education Association's
2011 Professional Development Conference

"I have been attending the NCAEA conferences since 1984..first as as college student, then as a teacher and now as an administrator. NC has always been on top of what is happening in art education in the nation and has successfully fought to keep the arts alive for our students. I have made valuable networking connections with colleagues and institutions who have helped me further my knowledge of the profession. The friendships and collegial relationships I have formed from attending these conferences have lasted 23+ years and I am grateful for them."

Heidi Wicker Heidi Wicker Visual Arts Lead Teacher Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools

"I look forward to our annual state professional development weekend because it is a wonderful way to renew.... renew friendships and networking opportunities with terrific visual arts professionals from all over our great State, renew and refresh creative energy, renew with license credits, and best of all renew by providing fun filled activities that always keep me wanting to come back for more!"

Workshop leaders are not paid for teaching the workshop but are reimbursed for supplies through a pre registration cost to participants. All presenters are acknowledged in other ways and are given a certificate to help with their personal teacher evaluation reviews. More details can be found on the proposal form.
