We are striving to create a more collaborative, connected, and inclusive organization, in which we work together to support all art educators in Minnesota. We believe in promoting quality art education for all and know that our members, now more than ever, want assistance to continue providing the best art experience possible for students. Our executive board and committees are working to provide more resources and opportunities for our members so they feel supported. This renewed focus will help guide us into a new era of AEM.
