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.
Membership is $20 and sign-up is available at the PBCATA Pre-School workshop each year as well as throughout the year. Sign-up during the Pre-School meeting and be entered to win a prize each year. We have a great year of workshops at discount prices, members' only art shows, and art exhibits that showcase the work created by your talented students.
PBCATA raises money which goes directly to our scholarship fund. Every year, two scholarships are awarded in the amount of $1,000 each to students pursuing a college degree in the Visual Arts. Along with raising money for scholarships, PBCATA also sponsors ribbons annually for the South Florida Fair and the Annual K-12 Student Art Exhibition held at the District office in West Palm Beach.
