  1. Do we need to register for this? I really am interested in going.

    1. I'm double checking with our regions rep, but I think you can just show up. I will comment again when I know for sure.

  2. I have been a KAEA member in the past, I work only part-time this year and was unable to be a member. I would like to attend this workshop for my district in hopes to possibly better educate the other teachers within my district on Common Core in Art. Could I participate in this event if I am not a member this year? Please let me know, thank you.

    1. Alyssa, you are more than welcome to attend. We hope to have you as a KAEA member again in the future!
