Student Opportunities

Your experience in Art Education is as rich and varied as you want to make it. We welcome your energy and creativity. So many ways to get involved:

  • The National Art Education Association (NAEA) Student Chapter at Texas State University is open to membership by students who intend to become art teachers or who are in studio art, art history, photography, or communication design. Meetings are held twice each month. Dates and times of meetings are determined each semester and membership may be on a semester-by-semester basis.

    Students are urged to also join the National Art Education Association ($40 for students) and to attend the annual NAEA conference. For more information, contact Dr. Kevin Jenkins, Faculty Advisor.
