What I Love About TAEA: I love that TAEA is a platform that brings excitement and celebration to art students and teachers. VASE is a wonderful beyond-the-classroom experience. It brings enlightenment and exposure to the part of our community that is passionate about visual arts. I believe this program shares a common goal with teachers of equipping and empowering a broad spectrum of talented students with the necessary knowledge and skills to become life-long learners. I've lived the experience as a high school student back in 2006 and I continue to see the positive impact it has on high school students today.

What I Love About TAEA: When I participated in VASE as a student over twenty years ago, it was the event that marked the beginning of my calling to be an art educator. VASE takes students through the creative process in which the young artist experiences visual problems, forms creative solutions, creates goal plans, meets deadlines, and evaluates feedback. These skills are highly sought after in the professional world. In addition, the gorgeous student artwork I am honored to see is incredibly moving. I have seen VASE create a spark for many students as it did for me.

As a passionate art enthusiast, and a promoter of sharing visual ideas to offer unique experiences, inspire dialogues, and create catalysts for culture, I believe this to be worthwhile and life changing work.

What I Love About TAEA: I love that VASE gives students a chance to show their hard work to the community and their peers. With any other extracurricular activity there is typically a show, performance, or game, and with visual art, sometimes these students have to wait until the end of the year to showcase what they've done; and even then it can be a small audience. With VASE, a huge number of artists — from students to teachers to judges and community members — come out and give these students the recognition they deserve. VASE really helps grow visual arts programs through these interactions.

What I Love About TAEA: I love everything about TAEA. Art education has always been my heart and soul, and through TAEA I have been able to feed my soul with art-minded friends and artistic events. I have been able to use the resources they provide to help my students and colleagues grow and explore. I hope to use my time as Region 11 Representative to set up even more opportunities for creative interactions amongst us. I love VASE because of what the kids get out of it! I love to hear them talk about the amazing artwork they see at the event, the advice they got from the juror or another student, and how inspired they are to get back in the studio and make more art. VASE really gives students a chance to put their voices into their work and share it with everyone. Bonus, the teachers are usually just as inspired as the kids!

What I Love About TAEA: Wow - I never really thought I would have the honor of writing as a Regional Director for VASE when I learned about VASE in 2013 and took my first small group of Jr. High students' art work to their first event. I knew from that moment on that this collective of creative minds were like me. I had found My People! When we work with students, we see them go through so many stages in life and some times we can help and sometimes words are not enough. Art is truly a therapy and escape, but also a way of telling their stories. Without TAEA / VASE, many of our students would fall by the wayside. I will always be grateful to the founders of VASE and those who have kept it running! I tell my kids two things each year: "We live in Texas, we go BIG or we go home, and it's not 4'oclock yet!" "If you can write your name you can draw. After all Letters are just LINES we have learned to read."

What I Love About TAEA: I love TAEA's long history of working together to advocate for young artists of our state. When the need for recognition of student artists was seen, TAEA took the vision of Dr. Henderson and developed, maintained, and often re-invented the definition of student art assessment through its continual commitment to VASE. Through VASE, TAEA has established an unprecedented avenue for students to express their unique voices, explore the vast array of visual art media and cultivate their passion for art. I have enjoyed being a part of VASE for the past 26 years and hosting VASE for our culturally-rich Region 20E community every year.

What I Love About TAEA: I love TAEA because it offers a world of possibilities. It provides opportunities for teachers to meet up to learn, collaborate, and to get help with ideas on how to teach different techniques. It also offers opportunities for our students to be recognized, earn scholarships, and to experience their art on a bigger stage. I'm excited to work with TEAM because my students have so enjoyed being a part of it. I have students who might not excel in any other area, but their art is outstanding. It gives them the chance to create and be recognized on a state level for their amazing artwork.
