This summer Alaska Arts Education Consortium is planning to hold 3 separate Arts Institutes for teachers, paras, administrators and other interested educators. The focus of each varies according to the theme, the length, and the host community.

If you wish to register, please click on the title of the institute or the “View Details” button next to the Institute you wish to attend.

This year we need a $50 deposit.

  • If you are going to pay for yourself or be reimbursed by your district after the event, do not click on the $50 deposit button but the regular registration button (member or non-member) where you can either pay the $50 on deposit or the entire fee.
  • If you are expecting a scholarship from Sealaska, your district, or elsewhere, click on the $50 deposit button.  This money will be refunded when you attend or if you withdraw within 30 days of the start of the Institute.

Note:  As of 4/13/17 AAEC and Bering Straits School District had to cancel the Unaklakleet Special Education and the Arts Institute due to low enrollment.  However all other institutes are open and the teacher-leaders are eagerly planning for dynamic weeks of arts education!

Attached is a flyer with an overview of all the AAEC 2017 Summer Institutes:

“Oh man! This was the most fun ever! I want to go to an Arts Institute every single year! Will you really do an Advanced Institute? I totally want in. I would just keep going to Basic ones too. Please don’t ever stop doing this. It’s so important, so useful and will make students so happy, enriched.” (participant, Nome Basic 2016)
