National Art Education Association (NAEA)



The National Art Education Association (NAEA) mission statement is as follows: “The National Art Education Association (NAEA) advances visual arts education to fulfill human potential and promote global understanding.” Through our student chapter, we will be giving students the opportunity for developing professional connections and growth. Through these connections, students can begin to build a network within the field; leading to future internships and job opportunities.

Providing resources and support for professional development opportunities, and opportunities to attend professional Art Education conferences at the state and national level for students interested in teaching in school, community, museum and other settings.

We plan trips to two conferences a year, one in Massachusetts and one in another state. At these conferences we gain contacts with other professionals in the field, learn valuable information from artist/teacher talks, and bond with each other as a cohort.
