AEV is the leading professional association that supports and represents visual arts based educators and the discipline across Victoria.


We foster and enrich learning and teaching experiences through the visual arts by providing resources, advocating on policy, curriculum, and programs, and providing opportunities for partnerships and relationships within the arts community.  AEV aims to promote and support high quality visual arts education as an essential component of a balanced curriculum for all students at all years of schooling in Victoria.

We offer: 

  • Upcoming professional learning programs and events

  • Curriculum news and updates, including AusVELS and the Australian Curriculum
  • A range of resources for art educators and visual arts students
  • A members' only area with additional resources, and our online journal, ARTicle
