Administrative History

The Kansas Art Education Association began in 1938 as the Kansas Art Teachers Association which was part of the Western Arts Association. The purpose of KAEA is to represent Kansas art teachers, sponsor institutes and conferences, to publish articles and to emphasis substantive art instruction. The KAEA publishes quarterly newsletters which contain useful suggestions, inspirations and information for and from art teachers. This has not changed since the 1938 premier publication of The Art Scoop, edited by Miss Maude Ellsworth.
