The NAEA National Convention is an annual event providing substantive professional development services that include the advancement of knowledge in all sessions, events, and activities for the purpose of improving visual arts instruction in American schools. As such, it is the world’s largest art education convention.
The three-day Convention includes over 1,000 participatory workshops, panels, seminars for job-alike groups…research reports, discussions, exhibits, and tours…keynote addresses by world-acclaimed educators, artists, researchers, and scholars…with the opportunity to connect with your colleagues from all over the world. Each year, some 110-200 exhibitor booths displaying the latest art textbooks, high-tech software, prints, slides, curriculum materials, equipment, and programs, as well as the latest studio and art history media are made available for examination and review by art educator delegates. It is a professional development opportunity to update oneself on the vista of state-of-the-art materials to advance visual art instruction in local art programs. All sessions and events are 100 percent content-oriented and substantively based.
The 2018 NAEA National Convention will be held March 22-24 in Seattle, Washington at the Washington State Convention Center and Sheraton Seattle Hotel.
