Friday Night Events

Imagine Yourself as ART ROYALTY!!

Are you a Queen... King.... Duchess... Duke... ??

The Princess of Paint? the Undercover Emperor? Queen of Hearts?

Bring your royal clothing to wear Friday night! Consider aligning your outfit with our themed colors of blues, greens, and purples. (Royals are often in fancy dress but not 24 hours a day - so be creative!) There is time allotted to dress for dinner and our special events.

Add "Royalty Regalia" you created on Thursday Night to your Royal Outfit!

And then be prepared to participate in our Art Royalty Procession!!


Following dinner we will be honoring individuals who were nominated by AAEA members and then selected by our awards committee for the work they have done in their education communities. This is a special time to recognize members who have excelled in the art education profession. Learn more about Awards

Silent Auction

Local artists in Arizona donated their artwork to support keeping high quality visual arts in education. Our donations we collected from these generous artists range from prints, paintings, sculptures, jewelry and customize work. Silent auction items will be displayed for viewing, along with bidding sheets. Participants will bid on items by writing their bid on the sheet. Winners will be announced following the Award Presentation. Upon payment, the highest bidder becomes the item recipient.

Play with our TASK Party!!

Art Supplies and "Tasks" created by everyone combine to make a really fun creative experience!
