Association francophone pour l’éducation artistique en Ontario/ French Association for Arts Education in Ontario (AFÉAO) works to create a network of members to promote professional learning for elementary and secondary school art teachers. The association achieves this by organizing one event each year, rotating among Northern, Southern and Eastern Ontario. This is an opportunity to share texts drafted by our expert teachers and/or artists in technical workshops and to support the implementation of Arts Education curriculum documents. Specialist teachers and artists work together to enrich these meetings, supporting cultural identity and school success through the integration of literacy, numeracy and creative and critical analytical processes.
The AFÉAO also oversees educational activities related to the art education and organizes training courses, seminars and conferences that focus on professional development for teachers of the arts.
