The Washington Art Education Association (WAEA) exists because of its members. The vitality of the Association depends upon a broad base of leadership.
WAEA invites YOU to become an Active Member and join our effort to promote quality art education in Washington State. By joining you will receive all member benefits of both WAEA and NAEA.
Membership starts when you enroll with NAEA and is good for one year form that date. Membership is accepted all year long!

When you click ‘Join Today’ you will be brought to the National Art Education Association website. Our membership is handled through them. When you sign up you will be a member of both WAEA/NAEA.
Please make sure that you fill in the county that you teach/work in and the name of the school you teach at if you are a classroom teacher. It is not required information but it enables our county representatives to keep you up-to-date with valuable information!

WAEA Membership Scholarship
The WAEA board is excited to offer a “Mileage to Membership” Scholarship. Instead of taking mileage reimbursements when board members attend meetings, they can opt to donate their mileage into this fund. Donations provide scholarships for potential members, for whom the $90 fee is a barrier to participation, to receive a free year of WAEA membership. Scholarship awardees are expected to actively participate in the WAEA in some capacity during their free membership year. This could include attending a board meetings, presenting at the annual Fall conference, or writing an article for Splatter Magazine.
Before you apply, be sure you have looked into other resources for funding, such as your building or district professional development funds, PD grants, a school district foundation or even your school’s ASB. (If you are the sponsor of a National Art Honor Society club, often times your ASB will pay the NAEA Dues as part of the club fees.)
