Visual Arts Administrators of Texas Division

Welcome to the TAEA Visual Arts Administrators of Texas Division Cohort. I am very excited to be the chair for our division. I am working to provide insightful information through our organization. We will continue the excellent District of Distinction Program that began in 2018-2019. This program offers Texas school districts, no matter the size, the opportunity to receive recognition for excellence in visual art education. More information about this program can be found here.

Please join the Visual Arts Administrators of Texas at the TAEA Fall Conference on Thursday, November 16, 4-8 PM. Watch the conference page for more information.
