Donate items for the Big Giveaway at Conference!
Do you feel the need to un-clutter your art storage closets? Thin out your art library? Please consider donating these items to this year's Big Giveaway at FAEA's Professional Development Conference. Each year, this event has been hugely successful, and we want this year to be no different. Items can be as simple as a bag of plastic containers for water, or as elaborate as a set of art prints or art education books. These young teachers will grab them up and be forever grateful to you. Bring your donations to registration, and we will be sure to get them to our storage area until we are ready for the event on Saturday, November 9. Thank you in advance for your generosity. #FAEA2019
