Education Committee (photograph by Bradley Marks)

The Education Committee promotes the visual arts as an essential aspect of human activity; as a creative endeavor and subject of cultural and historical inquiry and critical appreciative activity, and encourages excellence in teaching at all levels. Its focus is on pedagogy at the higher education level in art history, visual culture, studio, aesthetics, and art criticism, and on the interface between arts teaching and learning research and practice.

The Education Committee welcomes dialogue with all CAA members and arts professionals. If you have a question, concern, or comment, please contact Virginia Spivey, committee chair.
