Supporting Art Education in Florida


Serving visual art teachers, professors, administrators, museum educators and students, the Florida Art Education Association: encourages research in art education; holds public discussions; sponsors institutes and conferences; publishes articles, reports and surveys; honors outstanding art educators and supporters; and works with other related agencies in support of visual arts education.

FAEA is also the only organization for visual art educators in Florida which actively participates in a program for government relations on behalf of visual arts education. When arts education is discussed in the legislature in Tallahassee, FAEA is working to support your programs.

Black Lives Matter

FAEA stands in solidarity with those protesting police brutality, systematic racism, and every life lost to racism. We pause and reflect on the role that arts education can play in advocating for social justice and amplifying historically silenced voices.

The work of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force reflects the values of FAEA's professional community, which stands firmly with those working as part of the Black Lives Matter movement. FAEA is committed to acknowledging, honoring, and promoting inclusive practices that embrace diversity and equity throughout the organization. FAEA is with you, and together we will do better to end discrimination while advocating for equity. FAEA invites its members to view the latest video on the Black Lives Matter website, and to reflect on the role that each one of us can play in advocating for social justice.

In Solidarity,

Dr. Jackie Henson-Dacey
FAEA President
