PAEA, through the years, has conducted art workshops on different topics: art education, teaching methodologies, other art and crafts applications and techniques, and integration of creativity into the different subject areas. It has supported art educators through in-service sessions, trainings and workshops, membership meetings, newsletters, and the sharing of materials, ideas and resources. It has maintained connections with other organizations here and abroad through art exchanges and representations in international conferences. It has provided opportunities for cooperative study while discussing common problems and experiences related to the teaching of art.

It is currently being represented by a set of officers and board of directors who are mostly in the teaching profession. This group of art educators transformed art education into a meaningful collaboration of arts and minds, their skills cultivated through values, mentorship and friendship.

PAEA, in order to strengthen its foundation, encourages membership from diverse domains: people who are engaged in multifarious interests in life but who has unquenched passion for art, culture and education; art educators who are currently involved in school at any level; teachers and students of varied discipline; cultural workers and practicing artists.
These are the people whose commonality is to be a part of the art education in the country and help it go forward, flourish and spring into something very new from its roots of rich background.
