AFO 2014 Judges and Awards of Excellence Winners
Dr. Palmer is a member of the Oklahoma Art Educators Association (OAEA) and the National Art Educators Association (NAEA). Each year he presents on projects he has completed. At these workshops, he teaches other artists and educators about what they do, and about each project individually.
In 2000, Dr. Palmer was recognized by OAEA as the Outstanding Educator for Higher Education and the Arts Assembly awarded his work at the capital building as the Outstanding Community Arts Effort for a Group that year! Overall, Dr. Palmer feels that everyone wins when we work together on mural projects. Finally, it is a great life actually doing what you enjoy and contributing to a better community environment.
