Conference 2022 Logo


They say the one thing in life that is inevitable—is change. We just need to look around us to see changes in our society, natural and built environments, climate, technology, and the pandemic. Through it all, art teachers continually remain open-minded, flexible, and adaptive to the changes around them and their responses to those changes. They maintain this chameleon-like adaptability with support from their communities of practice. In other words, art teachers do not work alone. They work with colleagues, students, families, student teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, college faculty, museum educators, community members, and so many others to sustain successful teaching and artmaking practices. We invite you to come and share the many ways you have responded to the variety of changes you’ve faced over the past year, so we can all learn from each other. 

A Change In Climate is the theme of the 2022 NYSATA Conference. NYSATA seeks workshop proposals that promote positive change and encourage art educators to adapt and grow their practice in the face of the changing landscape of education in a post-Covid world. Some suggested connecting points include: 

  • art education for social-emotional health
  • art for preservation
  • artists who focus on climate change and the environment
  • working with non toxic materials and “green” alternatives 
  • art and social/political activism
  • art for equity and social justice
  • collaboration for change
  • new platforms and methods for teaching in a digital world
  • art lessons about change
  • artmaking for personal and professional growth 
  • ​advocating for the critical role of art education within a changing education arena
  • student choice and student voice

NYSATA has partnered with the Doubletree Hotel in Binghamton, NY for this in-person event, November 18-22, 2022. Watch your email and the NYSATA website for more information and a call for workshop proposals due May 1.
