Theme: The Challenge of Change. Change is a difficult, unpredictable and unwieldy process, yet it is inevitable, especially in this dynamic, ever changing world. 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the National Art Education Association. With this milestone anniversary in sight, the 2017 NAEA National Convention seeks to reflect upon our rich history and look to the future to identify the many challenges ahead for the field of art education.
