Art Educators of Nevada

Welcome to the

  The Art Educators of Nevada!

 Here you will find current updates about our organization, conferences, news, contests,  classes, and historical information.

     We are currently without a President Elect! If you have been thinking about getting involved in an arts organization, this would be the time to put your thoughts into action!  Our President Elect serves on our board for two years, then follows with the Presidency for two years. After the Presidency, you would serve as an advisor to the President for the next two years.
     As President Elect you would be responsible for putting on our annual state art conference. There are already two chairpersons for next year's conference which will be in Reno. You would be responsible for communicating with the chairpersons and members of our group regarding the upcoming conference.
      The following year, you would be responsible for working with the chairpersons and conference committee members to fascillitate the conference in the Las Vegas or the Henderson area.
     Our President serves as the delegate to the National Arts Education Convention for the Delegates Assembly which meets once a year in the spring during the convention. The agenda and direction for the NAEA is established at the Delegates Assembly.
     One of the best reasons to get involved is because you feel you have something to give other teachers. You will meet other like minded people who share your passion for the arts. As past president (2006-2008) I can tell you I've made some life long friends in other states due to the committees and leadership conferences I attended as  president. I was able to see the inside workings of how the NAEA runs, and  how other state organizations plan, develop, and work to the benefit of their members.
     Please contact Vicki Ankrapp at and let
our next President know that you would like to stand behind her!
