A key area of FAEA’s Strategic Plan focuses on the topic of Research and Knowledge. In part, the goal is to offer resources for both new and established art educators to consider in improving instructional practice and promoting the importance of art education and its impact on schools, students, and society. Beginning in 2020, FAEA’s Editorial Committee initiated a concerted effort to regularly feature research articles within the pages of the Association’s Fresh Paint magazine. Below we have collected the resulting manuscripts resulting from this new initiative as a way to provide members with a centralized site for accessing research findings that may provide inspiration for arts education practice.
