Call for Asian Art and Culture Curriculum Resources (CR) 

Asian Art and Culture Interest Group (AACIG) at the National Art Education Association (NAEA) publishes peer reviewed articles annually as Curriculum Resource (CR). This publication publishes CRs that address Asian art and culture in art education including, but not limited to Asian art history and philosophy, Asian/Asian diaspora artists’ works and practices, Asian folk art, material culture, popular culture, traditional or contemporary Asian art, and visual culture. AACIG strongly encourages authors to share images of student works (with permission), teacher samples, instructional materials, standards alignment, and assessment instruments as resources for K-16 teaching and learning. This may also include handouts, presentation slides, questionnaire, and rubric attached as Appendix of the CR. The AACIG would like to showcase how authors teach Asian art and culture in various settings: community, cultural centers, gallery, museums, non- traditional classroom settings, etc. Accepted CRs will be published on the AACIG website. All submissions will undergo a peer-reviewed process and the author(s) will be notified with review results by January 15th of the following year with review decision (Accepted with minor revision, Major revision for another review, and Rejected). AACIG publishes the CRs in early March every year.
