We will be accepting donations for the silent auction which will be held at our February Conference. PLEASE start making and saving artwork to donate. Each year artists/teachers donate their paintings, drawings, prints, handmade jewelry, pottery, ceramics, and sculptures. All of the proceeds go towards giving a scholarship to a deserving art student.
Also, remember it is also a good chance to buy artwork from your esteemed colleagues so save your pennies!
