The NAEA Research Commission is working to meet the ongoing research needs of the visual arts education field.

RC

The NAEA Research Commission was officially launched at the 2012 NAEA National Convention. The 2011-2014 NAEA Strategic Plan called for creation of the Commission in order to: “…conduct research and generate knowledge that enriches and expands visual arts education and widely share that research and knowledge.” The NAEA Research Commission is working to meet the ongoing research needs of the visual arts education field. The Commission will coordinate, and communicate about research that relates to the needs of practitioners and additional stakeholders concerned with understanding critical questions of importance to the field and for providing the highest quality of art education possible in our schools and educational institutions.
