Disabilities Studies and Art Education: Reframing Student and Teacher Engagement
Wednesday, February 1, 2023 | 7–8pm ET
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers

Research in disability studies can help art educators reframe ways of engaging with disability issues. Join us as we explore the use of disability arts to engage learners in critical visual literacy and imagery production. We’ll also unpack critical approaches to language and decentering normalcy to create inclusive learning spaces.
