Professor Christine Marmé Thompson, coordinator of the Art Education graduate program at Penn State, has been named a National Art Education Association (NAEA) Distinguished Fellow, joining University colleagues Mary Ann Stankiewicz, B. Stephen Carpenter II and Karen Keifer-Boyd, who previously received this prestigious designation. Thompson, one of only three art educators nationwide to receive this honor for 2015, will be recognized at the NAEA annual convention in New Orleans in March. In addition, she will give the annual “Studies in Art Education” lecture, after being invited by the Studies in Art Education editorial board.


Thompson, who joined the Penn State faculty in 2001, previously received the NAEA Lowenfeld Award, which recognizes an individual who has made significant and distinguished contributions in the field of art education. She has also received awards from the NAEA Women’s Caucus and Seminar for Research in Art Education.
