Articles for consideration of publication in "Trends" should have a scholarly base while including a practical application. For example, last year's issue focused mainly upon best use of technology in art and included a feature article about a contemporary tessellation artist who also designed the cover.
Regards from Texas,
"Trends: The Journal of the Texas Art Education Association" is the annual professional publication of TAEA. Articles in the journal are written by and for art educators. Elementary, intermediate, secondary, and university art educators, as well as all others who teach or work in the arts are invited to submit articles that pertain to practical or theoretical aspects of teaching visual arts. Articles involving timely subject matter (e.g., art and technology, distance learning, meaningful connections between art and other content areas, teaching diverse audiences, pre-service, professional development, and art assessment) will be given first priority for publication.
Manuscripts for "Trends" are now being accepted for blind review for the Spring 2000 issue. Articles must conform to the guidelines specified in "The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association" and should be submitted on disk or by email only. Do not include your name on the actual manuscript. Identify your article with a footer that includes the title or a portion of the title and page number. Identify yourself with a cover page that includes your name, address, email address, and title of your article.
Please limit your manuscript to no more than four double-spaced pages typed in a font such as Times New Roman or Arial no smaller than 10.
Black and white photos may also be submitted with manuscripts. Photos should be labeled with your name, address, the title of the manuscript, and a brief description of what is shown. If any individuals within the photos are identifiable, it is the responsibility of the author to obtain a signed photographic release form from the individual or, in the case of minors, from the minor's parent or legal guardian. A sample photographic release form is available from the editors.
The editors of "Trends" request that manuscripts be submitted by email or disk only. By email, cut and paste your manuscript or send via attachment. Submit email submissions to any one of the three editors.
If submitting by disk, clearly mark your disk with your name, address, the title of your manuscript, and the type of program in which it is written. Submit diskettes to the address at the end of this email.
If you wish to have your disk and photographs returned, please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Utmost care will given to all manuscripts and materials submitted, but TAEA and the editors assume no responsibilities in the events of damage or loss to manuscripts or photographs. The editors reserve the right to make editorial changes in all manuscripts prior to printing.
