The Arkansas Art Educators, an affiliate of the National Art Education Association, each year recognizes art educators and those who contribute to art education programs across the state. The recipients of recognition are those who demonstrate outstanding commitment and dedication to the education of students in the visual arts; provide instruction or support in a creative and enthusiastic manner; contribute personal effort beyond their normal teaching duties in promoting art education by developing positive public relations and advocacy in the community, region, state or nation; and display unique qualities that set them apart as outstanding educators.
