  2. 2. NAEA Position Statement on STEAM • STEAM education refers to teaching and learning in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. The STEAM approach is the infusion of art and design principles, concepts, and techniques into STEM instruction and learning. This is achieved through the use of STEAM curricula, collaboration of non-arts educators with certified/licensed art educators, teaching artists, and community- based arts organizations. It includes educational activities across all grade levels in both classrooms and in community- based settings. • STEAM approaches support the inclusion and involvement of professionals and resources from the community to support STEAM programs. Artists and designers experienced with STEAM are integral to driving workforce innovation in a variety of fields. • Visual arts content and artistic ways of thinking are fundamental and valuable components of high-quality STEAM education. NAEA believes that: • STEAM education values all STEAM disciplines equally • STEAM education is implemented through a wide variety of approaches • STEAM education encourages creativity and innovation • STEAM education acknowledges the rigor found in visual art
