Each participating school will assign an IHSAE Teacher Liaison to serve as the critical point person to relay important IHSAE information including dates, deadlines, and opportunities to students and colleagues.
The IHSAE is continuously working hard for visual arts education and all students who take part in our classes each year. Our goal at the IHSAE is to provide your students with opportunities that connect them to potential post-secondary art education and acknowledge artistic skill. Your students will benefit in many ways from being part of the IHSAE. Below are just a few.
The Illinois High School Art Exhibition and the Illinois Art Education Association recognize the artistic talents of Illinois' art educators with an annual juried exhibition with up to $1,000 in cash awards. Participating artists must be a K-12 Art Educator working within the greater Chicagoland area. All fine art media are accepted, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, fiber, glass, mixed media, digital/video media, ceramics, and jewelry. All works must be original and completed within the last year.
Teachers are invited to apply for an IHSAE grant to fund innovative and compelling art projects for students in their schools and communities. Grant applications are now available, due December 1st via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Get started!
