Graduate Student Art Education Association (GSAEA)

The mission of Graduate Student Art Education Association (GSAEA) at UNT is to support all Art Education Master’s and Doctoral students or other interested parties by creating opportunities for professional development and camaraderie.

We draw on the diverse skill sets, backgrounds and strengths that are represented among our graduate students to collaborate on academic endeavors and community-based art education projects.

The group exists as a social network to create opportunities for collaboration, professional development, publication, and conference presentation.
