NACOGDOCHES, Texas - A brunch designed to bring together East Texas art educators is planned for 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

Sponsored by the SFA Friends of the Visual Arts, the event provides an opportunity to "connect with fellow art teachers and teachers who are interested in integrating the arts into other subjects," said Cala Coats, assistant professor of art education in the Stephen F. Austin State University School of Art.

Coats said she and colleague Bill Nieberding, who is also an assistant professor of art education at SFA, view the event as a good opportunity to meet teachers from Nacogdoches, Angelina and adjoining counties in an effort to "strengthen the community of artists, art teachers and educators interested in the arts."

"We hope to further develop the sense of community among local art teachers and make them aware of the resources and opportunities offered by both the Cole Art Center and the art education program in the School of Art at SFA," Coats said.

Any art educators may attend the event. For more information or to RSVP, email Coats at coatsc@sfasu.edu. Cole Art Center is located at 329 E. Main St.
