Imagine breathing in the crisp, cool mountain air, and seeing the beautiful fall foliage all while getting creatively inspired by art teachers who are on your wavelength.  This year, nestled on the mountainside near Georgia's high-test point, GAEA presents the 2019 Fall Conference, Layers:  Creative Conversations & Collaboration.  please join us November 14th through the 17th in Young Harris, GA at Brasstown Valley Resort just in time to watch the leaves turn and enjoy the stunning holiday decor.  
Art educators often find themselves on an island all their own.  Young Harris College will open their doors to GAEA and take you back to art school for a weekend as their accomplished professors lead workshops in their beautiful new facilities.  Leave your island for a few days and find yourself collaborating with the teaching artist's community.
Join us as we peel back the layers and build upon our artistic foundations with the Journal Fodder Junkies, this year's keynote speakers Eric Scott and David Modler, authors of books like Journal Fodder 365 and The Journal Junkies Workshop: Visual Ammunition for the Art Addict.  The Journal Fodder Junkies have taken to YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram and are inspiring artists worldwide.
(GAEA is no longer accepting proposals for workshops.  Thank you to those who sent them in and are willing to serve our community and teach your best practices!)
All off campus events will be held at Brasstown Valley Resorts.  Hotel options include Lake Chatuge Lodge, The Ridges Resorts and Holiday Inn Express Hiawasee. Reserve your room today as this is peak season and rooms will fill quickly.

ONLY THREE ROOMS LEFT AT BRASSTOWN VALLEY RESORTS!!!  NO GUARANTEE THEY WILL GIVE YOU THE SPECIAL GAEA RATE!  ACT NOW AND CALL 800-201-3205!
