Internationally acclaimed expert on creativity and innovation, and author, Sir Ken Robinson, is keynoting the Summer 2017 Art Ed Now Online Conference!

For the first time, Sir Ken is going to be speaking directly to art teachers, about the importance of art education. You don’t want to miss this inspiring talk!


 

Each year I enjoy attending the AOE Conference from the comfort of my home. It’s so much fun learning new ideas, strategies, concepts, and techniques that can be applied to my teaching and in my studio at school. It’s a very engaging experience that I highly recommend. Every year the conference gets better!” ~Rebecca S.

 

“I came away from a day of comfortable learning at home with a HEAP of ideas, meaningful and practical tips, inspiration AND a feeling of community with other teachers who share art making, teaching, and a passion for all things artsy!” ~Pamela M

 

“There has never been PD for art teachers like this until the Art of Education. I wish I could have this every time we have an Institute Day in our district.” ~Suzanne F.
