Research & Scholarship in Visual Arts Education

The Art Education Research Institute (AERI) is an autonomous, virtual institute comprised of higher educators who are actively involved in the production of research and scholarship in visual arts education. 


Founded in 2014, AERI aims to advance higher education research and scholarship opportunities and quality in visual arts education; enhance the capacity of emerging and practicing scholars and researchers to conduct and disseminate visual arts education inquiry and knowledge; promote diversity in research issues, questions, contexts and methodologies; and encourage civil criticality and sustained engagement with research and scholarship in visual arts education.


The AERI is holding its first annual face-to-face research symposium at Northern Illinois University’s Naperville campus on March 15, 2016.
