Fall 2021 Conference: Call for Presenters


Greetings Artists, Art Educators, and Art Enthusiasts!

We are so excited to share with you all that this year’s Alabama Art Education Association 2021 Fall Conference will be in Mobile, Alabama this November! The conference workshops will be Friday, November 12 and Saturday, November 13 at Spring Hill College and the big awards dinner will be Friday evening at The Admiral Hotel. Our theme this year is “Illuminate, Ignite, Excite!” The sole purpose of this theme is to reengage and reignite our passion as art educators.

We have invited an exceptional guest speaker to our conference this year to expand upon why we teach art and why the arts matter (now more than ever!). The Instagram Famous, Netflix ‘star,’ Expert Blogger, and Art Educator extraordinaire, Cassie Stephens (cassie_stephenz) has agreed to be our guest presenter and keynote speaker. Cassie will be leading two Needle Felting workshops and two Weaving workshops.

We are starting the call for workshop presenters. The workshops can encompass anything from lessons you would like to share/demonstrate to workshops that are solely for personal gain and growth as an artist. Hands-on ‘make and take’ workshops will be longer this year with two-hour time slots, however we will have a few slots for hour long presentations. Call for Presentations ends September 1st, 2021. You will be notified by September 30th, 2021 via email if your Presentation Proposal has been accepted. Please click the link below to fill out a “Call for Presenters” form.


*Just a reminder, if your Presentation Proposal is accepted, you will still need to register for the conference. Registration will be open by July 1st. 

If you have any questions please email me, Amanda Youngblood, at aaeafallconference@gmail.com

Thank you! We are so looking forward to a wonderful conference with fantastic people!
