MAEA 2021 Award Ceremony Video




We would like to thank all of those involved in our 2021 Award Ceremony, awarding fifty-six Maryland art educators and two administrators! What a wonderful event, hosted by Lindsay Miller, our VP of Membership, who also recorded and finalized the video of the event.


The objectives of the Maryland Art Education Association (MAEA) Awards Program are to recognize and honor excellence in the many outstanding individuals of our state association. These awards provide professional attention and increase public awareness of the importance of quality art education at all levels.

Seven art educators have been recognized with state awards from the MAEA. These educators are recognized for the exemplary commitment and leadership to the field of art education at the state level. Each year MAEA members are invited to nominate educators in several categories. Nominations are adjudicated by an awards committee examining accomplishments and commendations.

49 public school art educators and two administrators have been recognized with district awards from Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Charles County, Howard County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County, Washington County, and Worcester County through the MAEA. This recognizes their excellence and service at the local district level. Each year district and independent school supervisors are invited to submit a slate of award winners in the categories of novice, career, emeritus, and administrator.

“We are honored to recognize these amazing educators for their service and dedication to their students, schools, and field of art education," said Sherri Fisher, President-Elect “Each of them truly understands the power of art to shape human potential."
