We are calling on art teachers, artists, students, allies in public education, and allies outside of public education to submit images to be used in the struggle to defend and promote public schools. The images will be used on banners, drop banners, parachute banners, screen printed posters, t-shirts, and screen-printed picket signs.

Deadline for submitting image drafts:

All image draft submissions are due Thursday, December 20th at 12:00 Noon; the Art Build committee will be reviewing designs at 5PM on Friday December 21st.

Please submit images to Nate Gunderson at ngunderson@nea.org .  Prior to the deadline, please email Nate to let him know what slogans you are designing for and what formats (banners, poster, parachute banners) so he has an idea what is being worked on and what is needed for designs.

Image drafts can be a final image or a mock-up/sketch. The images will be reviewed and selected by the Art Build Committee who will then decide on the final images and may suggest minor changes.

Artists will be contacted if their design is selected by Friday December 21st. Final designs will be needed by Thgursday January 3rd, 2019  to give time to expose silkscreens prior to the January 18-20th Oakland Paul Art Build.
