The National Art Education Association‘s annual conference is in New York City this year, and we were happy to host a pre-conference symposium in our Education Center. For five hours today, intrepid art educators met to present papers and poster sessions on issues of art, education, and ecology. The name of the symposium was: Earth Education: Art Education as if the Environment Matters.
Featured presents included:
Tom Anderson, Florida State University, USA
Jan van Boeckel, Aalto University, Finland
