The National Art Education Association (NAEA) brings together all levels of the profession including students, teachers K-12, supervisors, and college faculty. We encourage all of our students to join MICA's NAEA Student Chapter. Many of our alumni are active members, making presentations, attending conferences, and writing for publications. Our college faculty attend national conferences and have a strong presentation record. Over time, faculty have held various leadership positions in the organization and served on editorial committees and task forces. Maryland's Art Education Association (MAEA) is affiliated with the NAEA, which means that when a member joins one organization, they are automatically a member of the other. The MAEA holds annual conferences in the fall and our faculty, alumni, and students are active members, often presenting at the state conference.

Siobhan Vicens receives Award for Excellence in PK-12 Art Education from United States Society for Education through Art
Alumna Siobhan Vicens (MAAE, 2013) has been recognized by the United States Society for Education through Art with their Award for Excellence in PK-12 Art Education. Siobhan has done outstanding work as a teacher/leader at Southwest Baltimore Charter School and continues to give back to MICA as a cooperating teacher and recent leader of TLC (Teacher Learning Community) for first and second year art teachers. Part of her legacy is the movement she started, "Give This City a Hug", a project driven by helping her students process complex emotions after the 2015 Baltimore Uprising.
