Builds and sustains a diverse and vibrant professional learning community dedicated to advancing visual arts education within the context of art museums.
NAEA’s Museum Education Division builds and sustains a diverse and vibrant professional learning community among people dedicated to advancing visual arts education within the context of art museums in North America. The Division creates opportunities for its members to build knowledge and capacity, connects members with each other, develops tools for advocacy that advance the value of visual art education, and both encourages and conducts research to better understand the impact of art museums as learning institutions.
The Division leverages the contributions of more than 750 educators across North America through a network of 8 regional representatives and representative‐elects as well as project‐specific task forces and working groups. The Division also works closely with the leadership of the full Association, including six other Divisions, Regional Vice‐ Presidents, and Issues Groups, to advance the core mission of NAEA: to advance visual arts education to fulfill human potential and promote global understanding.
