NAHS & NJAHS Student Artwork Exhibited

NAEA Headquarters - Alexandria, VA

Alexandria, VA – June 2, 2016 – Artwork from students who are members of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) and National Junior Art Honor Society (NJAHS) is scheduled for exhibition June 6 - August 31 at the headquarters of the National Art Education Association (NAEA), located in Old Town Alexandria, VA.

This exhibit will be seen by visual arts education professionals, creative leaders, and students from across the country who will be gathering at NAEA headquarters for a number of meetings and events this summer. The artwork exhibited has been selected by art educators who are members of NAEA and sponsor NAHS/NJAHS chapters at their schools.

In 1978, the National Art Education Association began the National Art Honor Society program to inspire and recognize students who demonstrate outstanding achievement and interest in the visual arts. Currently, there are 50,000+ NAHS/NJAHS members worldwide. NAHS/NJAHS supports members and their students in attaining the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service, and to bringing public awareness to the essential value of art education in the 21st century.

“We live in a visual age, and a foundation in art education has never been more critically important for students pursuing careers in any field.”
—Deborah B. Reeve, NAEA Executive Director
