The NAEA National Convention is an annual event providing substantive professional development services that include the advancement of knowledge in all sessions, events, and activities for the purpose of improving visual arts instruction in American schools. As such, it is the world's largest art education convention.
The three-day convention includes over 1,000 participatory workshops, panels, seminars for job-alike groups...research reports, discussions, exhibits, and tours...keynote addresses by world-acclaimed educators, artists, researchers, and scholars...with the opportunity to connect with your colleagues from all over the world. Each year, some 110-200 exhibitor booths displaying the latest art textbooks, high-tech software, prints, slides, curriculum materials, equipment, and programs, as well as the latest studio and art history media are made available for examination and review to art educator delegates.
It is a professional development opportunity to update yourself on the vista of state-of-the-art materials to advance visual art instruction in your program. All NAEA sessions and events are 100% content-oriented and substantively based. There are no NAEA non-content functions such as golf, sightseeing, shopping tours, and the like. Sessions are scheduled from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm each day.
How to Attend: The Annual Convention is held in the spring, usually March or April. Information about the Convention may be found in the summer and fall issues of NAEA News, as well as on our website.
