At the 2013 Florida Art Education Association (FAEA) conference in October, five local art educators were selected as FAEA board members by their peers. Each of the representatives are also members of the Palm Beach County Art Teachers Association (PBCATA). Dr. Nicole Crane, PBCATA Treasurer and FAEA President Elect had the following to say, “We are honored to serve on the Florida Arts Education Association Board of Directors. The number of local art teachers on the Board demonstrates the strength and quality of arts education in Palm Beach County. As board members, we plan to continue the momentum of arts advocacy and increase the quality of arts education in our county and throughout Florida.”

It is the mission of the Palm Beach County Art Teachers Association to support art education and to promote art as a means of communication for each individual. It is the right of each individual to develop his own creativity and aesthetic potential. It is our purpose to strengthen the position of art education in Palm Beach County. We support programs in art which meet the needs, interests and abilities of each individual student. We will promote and maintain the highest quality of art education in Palm Beach County.
