AAEA Conference 2014.  We’ve had to make some CHANGES!!

The caterer was planned; the room was booked.  Who would have thought that the Montgomery Academy Football Team that hasn’t been to the state playoffs in over 15 years would be amazing this year…not us!  It looks as if our team will be playing on the MA field in a playoff game on November 14th and there will be THOUSANDS of people on campus.  So we have moved the AAEA Dinner event to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.

Friday’s Dinner and Awards Ceremony will take place at the Montgomery Museum of Fines Arts at 7:00 pm.

Please notify anyone that had plans to attend the Awards Ceremony on Saturday of this CHANGE and we are very sorry for any inconvenience.

Please see the updated  2014 AAEA CONFERENCE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS!

On Friday at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, every participant will have the opportunity to attend all 6 workshops.  The format will be a round robin set up and we know you will love them all.  The workshops will include 5 hands-on workshops and a museum tour.  The 5 classroom friendly hands-on workshops will include: Fast & Loose painting and color mixing, Silkscreen printing for the classroom, Bleach pen drawing techniques on paper and textiles, Sculptural workshop inspired by the Art for Life’s Sake Exhibit, and a Tim’s Tech Talk utilizing great art resources on the world wide web.

On Saturday at Montgomery Academy, participants will have the opportunity to attend 5 sessions from 8:30-3:00 plus visit with vendors.  Each hour session offers seven different workshops to choose from.  You will receive a packet at check-in on Friday morning so that you can plan what you’d like to attend on Saturday.  Plus you’ll be ready to hit the road or chill at the hotel by 3:30 on Saturday afternoon.

Looking forward to taking you on an “Art JOURNEY” on November 14th at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, 1 Museum Drive, Montgomery, AL 36117.
