Thanks for such an awesome contest as Celebrating Art! It is a great opportunity for the students to share their artwork with people from all over!


Thanks again for all you do to support art education! My students’ parents are so thrilled to have their children’s art published in a hardbound book!


Thank you for spearheading such an endeavor. It is an exciting experience to share with the middle school students!


I really cannot express to you how invigorating the conference was. I made connections and acknowledged to presenters and attendees that I am from an independent school in Delaware, that hands down, the AENJ conference is the most exciting and amazing art educators’ conference I’ve ever attended. Kudos to AENJ!

I just wanted to send a thank you to you and all the members who worked so hard to put together this online conference event.
I can imagine the challenges this new format must have presented. I know as a presenter I had tech issues and you were so patient and supportive.
I appreciate all time, energy, sweat and tears that I am sure went into this conference.

I am still basking in all the creativity that you have gathered for this conference…keep going and as I come up with any ideas that would be helpful I will contact you. Thank you for all your hard work! It really showed!


I thought this was awesome!!! Also you can’t get locked out of a class or have to choose between two things you like. Also, I love the beach but I liked using my commuting time to take extra workshops. I like that I can keep looking at these videos and continue my professional development until December!!!!! I can’t wait to watch more and learn more! Great job!

I am writing to offer my congratulations, praise and gratitude.  I will be filling out the online conference survey, however, while I have been participating/watching sessions for four (wonderful) days, I still have not finished watching everything I want to watch!!  So, I will wait another day or two until I fill out the survey, but I cannot let another moment go by without thanking you and all of your colleagues, at AENJ, for providing another amazing conference.
This is my third time in four years attending the AENJ conference.  I have never been disappointed and this year is no exception.   The content and quality of this conference is to be commended.  I am overwhelmed by the information and rejuvenation I have experienced.  Since Friday, I have emailed several colleagues and administrators regarding specific things I’ve learned/experienced and, this morning, began a lesson based on specific content from a session.   This is like the 12 day of Christmas!  

I loved this workshop – Ruth did a GREAT job with explaining Froebel’s Gifts concept, and I will be able to translate this to my art classes – Thank You!!!



I loved the museum tour, relating to the theme, and I really enjoyed the workshop, being able to be around like-minded art teachers. – About the “Celebrating Many Voices” workshop.
