The mission of the Bay Area Art Educators is to provide art educators in Mobile and Baldwin Counties the opportunity to meet together to share and gather ideas that will be used in the education of our students and to discuss the venues through which the students' artwork can be shared with family, friends, and the community. While it is our hope that students will realize art has helped shaped and change the world, we want students to realize their artistic talents and promote understanding that artistic expression is important to people as individuals.
Congratulations to the art teachers for yet another display of their childrens' work. I know how hard it is to get an exhibit together and beautifully displayed for public viewing. I just wish the Arts Council office were open on Saturday so I could go see it, too. Keep up the good work !
