Description:

In discussing how art education theorists, teachers, and artists might think about art education in new ways, this book delves into five topics, each the subject of a separate chapter. First is the new official interest in art education, beginning with the national goals, which were formalized in the Goals 2000 legislation of 1994. Second is discipline-based art education theory. Third is an examination of postmodernism. Fourth is a consideration of constructivist teaching theory within the context of art education. Fifth is a survey of new computer technology for applications that can serve art education. And the sixth chapter offers a summary of this critical convergence and addresses related issues, such as arts research.
