NAEA International Delegations

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

Each fall, 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.
