An Opening Reception will be held at the Cultural Center at 5:30 PM, Friday, Nov. 1.

NYSATA, is a non-profit professional organization founded in 1948 for the purpose of advancing the cause of art education by stimulating interest in the study of art in public, private, and parochial schools, and colleges in the state of New York; by developing sensitivity to and encouraging participation in the visual arts; by securing wider recognition of the vital importance of education through art; by encouraging carry-over of school art education into the artistic, social, and home life of the individual; by fostering professional growth and leadership among the members of the organization; and by voicing our concerns with regard to policies and legislation that effect art education.
The New York State Art Teachers Association is made up of 10 Regions. Each region serves its own counties with a host of events and initiatives, and also represents the teachers and students within the region at meetings of the larger association.
Members of NYSATA include representatives from pre-school through university level art educators, art administrators, museum educators, school administrators, school districts, commercial representatives, and friends and benefactors.
