VASE Registration is Open!

Region 10N VASE 2016 - February 27, 2016

How to Register:

VASE is ready to go!!

Let's be was working. I have put in a notice to the webmaster that it is having trouble letting teachers register. It seems the website when on vacation as well.

First, you will want to use Internet Explorer. The VASE website works best with IE. Next, you will need to go to and click on “Teacher/Sponsor Registration” under the High School VASE section in the middle of the page. It will prompt you to login. Login to the TAEA site using your email address and your TAEA password that you set up. After you login it will take you back to the VASE registration where you will fill out the information and submit or save it. I will activate your account and you will be notified that you are ready to input entries. From that point on, when you go back to the VASE site you will login with your TAEA login. You will not be able to enter any students if your TAEA membership is not current.

Region 10N VASE – Saturday, February 27, 2016 – Williams High School, Plano ISD

You can find the revised VASE Guidelines on the VASE site after you login. There will be more information later. If you have any problems, email me and I’ll try to help.

Thank you – VASE is coming!!

Make Sure You Are Reading the NEW VASE Rules for 2016.

The Blue Ribbon Committee seemed to have been busy this summer! I keep getting rules updates from our State VASE Director, Linda Fleetwood.

Here are some highlights for this year's rule changes so far:

Inappropriate/Offensive Works of Art: TAEA/VASE adheres to displays of artwork that are family friendly.

(A) The following subject matter are inappropriate for VASE and are prohibited:

  • Artworks that include profane references to a deity, obscene language, drug abuse or paraphernalia, images of suicide or criminal violence.

(B) Teachers must receive campus principal’s signature on the Regional Entry Certification Form verifying the artwork has been reviewed and the content is approved.
  • Artworks that include [ANY] nudity, implied or explicit sexuality, or any subject matter inappropriate for young adults, and any content that may offend the moral standards of the community.

Too many teachers pushed the boundaries on the nudity realm. There will be NO NUDITY OF ANY FORM/KIND accepted and judged at this year's VASE Event.


(E) All artwork must have resources and references attached to the back of the artwork (or in the case of 3D artwork, must be included with the other attached form) such as photographs, rough drafts, thumbnail sketches, and/or production/reflection notes.

  • These include but are not limited to student photographs, student sketches, student-directed photographs, production/reflection notes, and any additional secondary references.
  • The appropriate box or boxes on the Student Intent and Artwork Identification Form must be checked citing the source or sources for the artwork.
  • A detailed description of the source of the image (for example, who took the photo and where it was taken) must be written in the appropriate section on the Student Intent and Artwork Identification Form.
  • Digital 3D printed work must have attached source to justify originality.

I hope you will mark your calendars for February 27, 2016 and join us for what will be another FANTASTIC VASE event!

If you have new teacher(s) on staff, please feel free to share my contact information and newsletter with them! I'd love to add them to the list! Likewise, if you are not interested in participating in the 2016 HS VASE Event and wish to be removed from this list, please let me know. I am happy to do that as well.
