All TAEA members and the broader art education community are invited to join us in prepping for the Texas Art Education Association Conference 2021 at Kalahari Resorts & Convention Center in Round Rock, TX on November 4-6, 2021.

Small Works, a silent auction will raise funds for student scholarships and grants from the Association facilitated by our philanthropic arm and sister non-profit, the Texas Art Education Association.  Impact Texas art education by creating and donating a small work in a 5×5 (2D format) or 5x5x5 (3D format).

Start your fall, feeding your creative spirit, and benefit students and teachers.  See some resources, ideas and updates below:


5×5 Canvases Purchase Example (Don’t forget to purchase via Amazon Smile and benefit Texas Art Education Association – impact your giving through your purchase!)
