Many of you know that I am the Program Chair of Fine Arts at Ivy Tech Community College in Central Indiana. Last year I was fortunate enough to attend the annual National Art Education Association conference in Chicago, and two years ago I attended the Foundations in Art :Theory and Education conference in Indianapolis. Both of these conferences energized me and my teaching practices.
I have talked about this with my adjunct faculty and want to afford them the opportunity to attend some of these conferences. The NAEA conference this year will be in New York City March 2-4 and the FATE conference will be Kansas City, MO from April 6-8.
The cost of registration and 3 nights hotel stay for NAEA will be $900 per person, and the FATE conference will be $732. per person. I would love to raise enough money to send as many possible of my adjunct faculty to these conferences, as a way to thank them for their work and commitment to our students. The information and energy they will bring back to our classes at Ivy Tech will be a fabulous return on your investment.
The money raised will NOT cover their membership dues, additional workshops or travel to the conferences. But money raised will help defray their costs.
