Request for Applications

You are invited to submit a proposal to present at the CAEA State Conference Curriculum Slam! The event will take place on Saturday November 10, 2024 at the CAEA State Conference in Anaheim, CA.


Curriculum slams were developed in Chicago by the Museum of Contemporary Art as a way to quickly share ideas from many presenters. If your proposal is selected, you will create a slideshow in the “Pecha Kucha” format… don’t worry, we’ll help with this!

Please see the application to present at and reach out to Ross at with any questions.

Administrator “Ask Letter” For CAEA Membership


As Art Educators, we are no strangers to advocacy. 

We so often have to advocate for the importance of what we do, the resources we need for our classrooms, and for our own professional development. 


CAEA is here to help build your advocacy toolbox: and this includes making it as easy as possible for you to request financial support from administrators for membership costs to join your state and national professional organization. Remember: a personal request from educators is always more powerful than a mass email from our organization.

Click here for a customized letter that you can personalize in an email to your school administrator. You can use this to renew your own current membership or to help an art educator you know who is not a current member become one.
