Thanks to all participants of the 2018 Summer Symposium hosted by the OAEA Fellows which took place at the University of Dayton June 26-27.  We kicked off the event with a lovely Monday evening reception at the home of Nancy Vogel with “fajitas and fellowship”.  Fifty-nine people participated over the two days (that number includes our presenters) - thirteen art educators presenting 18 workshops.  Not only were participants able to get their creative juices flowing, but part of their registration fee went to support the Ohio Art Education Foundation.

Thanks go out to Darden Bradshaw and the University of Dayton for providing the space for the Symposium and a special thanks to all our presenters!  Their creative energy made the Symposium a great success.
