The OAEA is a statewide service organization operated by an executive committee and board of directors, consisting of elected representatives from nine regions and eight divisions. These volunteers serve in a variety of capacities on the local, regional and state levels. Other members represent the Distinguished Fellows, Ohio Art Education Foundation, and Committee Chairs.

Art Education Professional Development is the very best when designed by art teachers, for art teachers, and this year's OAEA Edition was spectacular! Thank you to everyone, from the attendees to the presenters, to every volunteer who helped along the way. Your thoughtful approach to delving into topics and serving as role models for your colleagues underscores your commitment to art education both in the classroom and out. You are truly each an inspiration to the profession.

The OAEA is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant award from the Ohio Arts Council in the amount of $1322.  This critical funding is being used to support strategic planning currently in process.  The OAEA Strategic Planning Team comprised of the Executive Committee and representatives from the Board of Directors met August 4 for a day-long retreat to launch the planning process. The goal of this project is to strengthen our organization and plan for the future. Consultant Julie Graber of "Brains for Business" is assisting us with this effort and a report will be unveiled at the 2015 OAEA Professional Development Conference in Dayton.  The OAEA greatly appreciates the support of the Ohio Arts Council who helped fund this project with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
