Arts Education: The Measure of Success Biennial Statewide Conference is being presented by the Maine Arts Commission’s Maine Arts Leadership Initiative. Now in phase 5, the MAAI has 74 Teacher Leaders who have provided over 100 workshops to almost 1500 educators.

  • Participate in a dynamic format of 5 x 5 presentations (9 topics, 5 minutes, 5 images).
