NAFAE is the national subject association for Fine Art in Higher Education. We have a key role within CHEAD (the Council for Higher Education in Art and Design) and we give a voice to UK Fine Art Education in ELIA (European League of Institutes of Art). NAFAE is aligned to PARADOX, the European network for Fine Art Education, and our members work with their steering group to ensure mutual awareness and updated knowledge of the changes to Fine Art teaching and research across the European area. NAFAE maintains close ties with the Group for Learning in Art and Design (GLAD) and with the National Society for Education in Art and Design (NSEAD). As such we are the only subject association dedicated to Fine Art Education.
