The Texas Elementary Art Meet is a visual arts event that recognizes exemplary student artwork. Any elementary art teacher who is a current member of TAEA can participate in TEAM. The teacher can enter as many pieces of artwork as they want, however, there is a limit of 2 per student. Each artwork entered has an entry fee of $12. This fee helps cover the costs of the jurors, webmaster, accounting, certificates, ribbons, and medals.

Here are the dates for this year’s event:

Final Add / Delete Deadline – 02/06/20
Artwork Drop-off – 03/28/20
Jurying Date/artwork pickup – 04/04/20

During the event, the student artwork will be reviewed by jurors. The jurors will give each artwork a rating and will write comments for the student, giving them positives (glows) and constructive criticism (grows). Each student will have their artwork returned to them with the juror comments, and either an award ribbon or a medal for all artwork scored as Good or higher. Top of TEAM students will have their artwork photographed and featured on the TAEA website.
