On September 9, 2015, the Florida State University (FSU) student chapter of the National Art Education Association (NAEA) will hold its first initial meeting of the semester. The meeting will be held at 5pm in room 3003 of the William Johnston Building.
For those interested in joining the chapter or knowing a little more about its involvement with the community, be sure to attend the meeting!
The NAEA is the largest professional creative community established exclusively for visual art educators, university professors, researchers and scholars, teaching artists, administrators, and art museum educators. The FSU student chapter’s primary purpose is to promote the field of visual arts education through solidifying bridges of cooperative partnership within FSU’s College of Visual Arts, Theatre, and Dance, externally with other FSU academic departments, as well as with public and private entities within our local community.
So if you have a strong interest in advocating for the arts, this is the organization for you! Non-art-education students are also encouraged to attend in order to gain a better appreciation for the importance of the visual arts in life-long learning, human fulfillment, and global understanding.
Be ready to discuss membership, conferences, activities and events, and your creative ideas for the year at the interest meeting. Don’t worry about finding a bite to eat before because delicious snacks will be served!
If you are unable to attend the meeting but want to join the chapter, or if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Sara Scott Shields (email@example.com), Ms. Jennifer Hamrock (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Ms. Cindy Jesup (email@example.com).
