“Advocacy White Papers for Art Education” are a collection of 14 essays written in response to the NAEA report, Learning in a Visual Age: The Critical Importance of Visual Arts Education. These essays communicate the value of visual arts education in a constantly changing educational environment and demonstrate why visual arts education is important for meeting each student’s educational needs. We urge you to share the White Papers for Art Education with colleagues, policy makers, supervisors and administrators, preservice art educators, and parents.
