Welcome to the online magazine of the BC Art Teachers’ Association.

On this site, you will find resources for K-12 teachers that align with the Arts Education curricula for BC. Check out the Submissions page if you’re interested in contributing resources or lesson plans. To join our association and receive copies of our print publications , visit our main website. We also have an annual conference each year.



You are receiving this message so I can inform you about a special new component of an upcoming BCATA Conference. I am planning to organize the first-ever BCATA Retired Art Exhibition. The Conference will take place in Surrey, Friday and Saturday, October 20-21 with a Pre-Conference Evening Event at the Surrey Art Gallery, 19th October.

Hopefully, this notice allows plenty of time for details to be arranged and for you to consider this invitation. I encourage you to participate in this special exhibition. If you are interested in showing one of your pieces, please let me know by email so we can begin to discuss how your art will be collected and returned safely.

Presently, I have a very small list of names and contact details for Retired Art Teachers. If you know of any retired art teachers who might be interested in this project, please pass this message on and/or give me the contact information.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Barbara Sunday

BCATA Retired Art Teacher Chair
