Welcome to Art Education Australia
Welcome to Art Education Australia.
We are the peak body for visual art education in Australia
The current Art Education Australia (AEA) 2017 - 2018 Executive are as follows:
President - Dr Margaret Baguley, University of Southern Queensland (QLD)
Vice President - Dr Abbey MacDonald, University of Tasmania (TAS)
Secretary - Dr Malcom Bywaters, University of Tasmania (TAS)
Treasurer - Ms Sue Pavlovich, Horsham College (VIC)
Over the past few months the new AEA Executive have been involved in representing members at a number of meetings and events, continuing to update members through the AEA Facebook page (streamed on this homepage), the journal Australian Art Education, and working on a range of initiatives to further strengthen the collective voice of the visual arts and education in Australia, both nationally and internationally. On 26 March, 2018 AEA formally handed over an art education kit to assist students and teachers to engage with the Hadley's Art Prize Hobart (HAPH). This has been a wonderful collaboration and we look forward to seeing the exhibition of finalists at Hadley's Orient Hotel from 21 July - 25 August, 2018.
Some upcoming exciting intiatives include an AEA Members' Art Exhibition titled 'Our home' which will be exhibited at the UTAS Academy Gallery from 21 May - 1 June 2018 to coincide with International Arts Education Week. Please click on the News llink above for further information.
We have also organised a tour for members to the Sydney Biennale on Saturday April 28, 2018 with an informal dinner that night. The tour will be tailored for art educators and artists. Please RSVP by April 19 so we can finalise numbers for the organisers. We are really looking forward to seeing you there!
We are currently working on Vol 39, Issue 1 of Australian Art Education and have two more issues scheduled for later this year. Vol 39, Issue 2 is scheduled for August. There is also an exciting opportunity to submit a paper for a special theme issue titled 'Borderless: Global Narratives in Art Education', an international research exchange for the last journal issue this year (Vol. 39, Issue 3). Further information about this can be found under our 'Journal and Publications' link at the top of the page. In the next issue we will feature a visual essay and professional article for teachers to respond to members' interests and needs.
We would like to thank all authors who have submitted high quality journal articles in the last two issues and for sharing their wonderful research with the national and international community.

We hope 2018 has begun well and we look forward to working with you over the coming months.
