NAEA Position Statement on North American Art Education Accord

Canadian Society for Education through Art—National Art Education Association

A North American Art Education Accord

The Canadian Society for Education Through Art and the National Art Education Association seek to establish relations in which the two national neighboring art education associations work toward mutual concerns and initiatives.

More specifically, this Accord is dedicated to the advancement of art education; the promulgation of current thinking and action in art education; and the advancement of high standards in the teaching of and learning in art.

Therefore, an agenda to enhance and expand the current relationship may include but not be limited to:

  • a system of communication among the executive and boards,
  • relationships among members, affiliates and state/provincial associations,
  • an exploration of shared programs, benefits, and services to members.
