Welcome to the 2012 NAEA National Convention
Call for Presentations
The 2012 NAEA National Convention will be held March 1-4 in New York City, New York
at the Hilton New York and Sheraton New York Hotels
2012 NAEA Convention Theme:
Emerging Perspectives | Connecting Teaching, Learning, and Research
The 2012 NAEA National Convention theme focuses on the idea that we are better educators when we collaboratively explore what it means to be teachers and learners, and how research can improve visual arts education spanning all educational levels and environments. We have many perspectives and one focal point: the power of visual arts education to fulfill human potential.
In New York City, NAEA will mark its 65th anniversary, and celebrate as our past, present, and future come together. What better place to celebrate who we are as artists and educators than New York City—the great melting pot—the arts capital of the world!
The value of any conference can be measured by the connections we make, with people and ideas. I invite you to join us at the 2012 NAEA National Convention and make those connections!
To submit a presentation, review the NAEA Convention Presenter Policy below, and then proceed to "New Speaker" at the bottom of this page. By submitting a proposal, you agree to the NAEA Presenter Policy.
REQUIREMENT: Presentations must reflect one or more of the following NAEA Strategic Planning Goals: Community, Advocacy, Learning, and Research and Knowledge.
