This year , on August 7th through the 9th, Sookmyung Women’s University hosted the 3rd annual Cross Cultural Asian Art Education International Conference in Seoul, South Korea. Those who attended the conference were a myriad group of art educators, artists and policy makers interested in coming together to share their research and practices.
The theme of the conference this year was Culture, Communication and Art Education. The conference sought to:
“explore cross-cultural communications through art education and examine art education practices of Asian countries to empower and build cultural capabilities with educational implications.” (CAAE, 2014)
