NAEA International Delegations

Join the National Art Education Association’s elite delegation on a professional exchange!

Each year, NAEA offers members the opportunity to take part in an international professional exchange through a third-party trip organizer.

Participating delegates meet with international counterparts to learn about the education system and the place of art within it through professional meetings and daily site visits. International Delegation tours are led by the NAEA Board President.

Topics of Discussion

  • Learning about the education system in the country
  • Exploring the ways in which art education fits into the priorities of the education system
  • Observing the ways visual arts are taught at all levels of education
