Welcome to the North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts

The North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts (NTIEVA) embraces a philosophy that a comprehensive education in the visual arts education can increase learning capacity in children. To accomplish this requires the development and dissemination of innovative and exemplary curricular materials, especially electronically-based materials; opportunities for classroom and art specialist teachers, school administrators, and museum personnel to engage in professional development opportunities; pre-service preparation programs for art specialist and classroom teachers that prepare them to deliver a comprehensive art education program; and advocacy and leadership training in art education.

Since 1990, NTIEVA has addressed issues related to staff development and implementation of comprehensive art education. In addition, the Institute has engaged in a number of related activities, including the preparation of special curriculum materials, statewide advocacy efforts, leadership training efforts and research related to the relationship between comprehensive art education and whole school reform.

The Institute is committed to continuing its involvement in research and development efforts related to cutting edge issues in art education, and will build upon its past activities as it continues to work in the areas outlined above.
