Recommending that art be taught as a humanity, this volume provides a philosophical rationale for the idea of discipline-based art education. Levi and Smith discuss topics ranging over both the public and private aspects of art, the disciplines of artistic creation, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics, and curriculum proposals featuring five phases of aesthetic learning. While there is no consensus on how the various components of aesthetic learning should be presented in order to accomplish the goals of discipline-based art education, the authors point out that progress toward those goals will require that those who design art education programs bring an understanding of the four disciplines to their work. The introductory volume of a five-volume series, this book will appeal to elementary and secondary art teachers, those who prepare teachers at the college level, and museum educators.

Noted art critic Theodore Wolff provides a practical overview of how those who teach art can apply the principles and techniques of art criticism from kindergarten through high school. Connecting the practical to the pedagogical, George Geahigan provides a historical overview of art criticism in education literature. He rejects prevailing approaches that treat the discipline as a procedure for talking or writing about works of art, asserting instead that criticism is best construed as a mode of inquiry concerned with helping individuals see meaning and value in works of art. A rare combination of the practical and theoretical, Art Criticism and Education will be an invaluable aid to anyone who teaches art.

As art educators consider the relevance of a wide range of disciplines to the teaching of art, "Aesthetics and Arts Education" (a successor to the 1971 volume "Aesthetics and the Problems of Education") offers an international look at the role aesthetics can play in teaching all the arts. Thirty-two articles by American and English scholars address the philosophical and educational theories underlying aesthetics, aesthetics as a field of study, curriculum design and evaluation, and the problems and purposes of aesthetic education.

This collection of Ralph Smith's writings provides a comprehensive overview of his extraordinary contributions to understanding the importance of aesthetics in education. These essays record his lifelong efforts to construct a defensible rationale for the arts in general education and a workable curriculum for art education in our public schools (K-16). The topics covered range from liberal education to arts education, the relationship of art, aesthetics, and aesthetic education to teaching and curriculum, the arts and the humanities, and cultural diversity.

Aesthetics Primer

Aesthetics Primer

The text is suitable for university courses that address aesthetics specifically, but also art education, values education, philosophy of education, and qualitative research methods.

The Aesthetics Primer is intended for anyone interested in the topic of aesthetics and how it can influence directions in education. The text is suitable for university courses that address aesthetics specifically, but also art education, values education, philosophy of education, and qualitative research methods. While examples are frequently taken from art, the primer is applicable beyond the discipline of aesthetic education. The text approaches its topic from two directions. First, there is a theoretical and philosophical section, providing a historical context for the term «aesthetics». It then provides a practical application, describing a research protocol that examines how participants respond to, record, and reflect on their aesthetic encounters. These activities result in a merging of aesthetic responses and, in the examples provided, art criticism. The implication is that the exercise could be extended to include other educational disciplinary foci as well. The research clearly indicates emerging patterns of self- and social awareness that result from subjects' participation.

Discipline-based art education (DBAE) is an approach to art education that draws upon four art disciplines: art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics. This handbook is designed to help art specialists and supervisors, classroom teachers, teacher educators, museum educators, and school administrators to understand and implement DBAE. The handbook is organized into nine sections, beginning with an introduction. Section 2 offers a general definition and rationale for the inclusion of DBAE art curricula in the general education of U.S. students. Section 3 defines the content of the four art disciplines that constitute the core of DBAE. Section 4 focuses upon the instructional materials that are used in teaching a DBAE program. Section 5 is a consideration of the roles and responsibilities of the different players in DBAE. Section 6 concerns the evaluation of curriculum and instruction. Section 7 provides a thumbnail sketch of some key issues for planning and carrying out a successful implementation of DBAE. Section 8 summarizes highlights of the literature on DBAE. The handbook concludes with section 9, which contains four appendices: three papers respectively called "The Four Art Disciplines", "Becoming Familiar with Works of Art"; and "The Getty Center for Education in the Arts"; and a selected bibliography.

The Encyclopedia of Curriculum Studies provides a comprehensive introduction to the academic field of curriculum studies for the scholar, student, teacher, and administrator. The study of curriculum, beginning in the early 20th century, served primarily the areas of school administration and teaching and was seen as a method to design and develop programs of study. The field subsequently expanded to draw upon disciplines from the arts, humanities, and social sciences and to examine larger educational forces and their effects upon the individual, society, and conceptions of knowledge. Curriculum studies has now emerged to embrace an expansive and contested conception of academic scholarship while focusing upon a diverse and complex dynamic among educational experiences, practices, settings, actions, and theories in relation to personal and institutional needs and interests. The Encyclopedia of Curriculum Studies serves to inform and to introduce terms, events, documents, biographies, and concepts to assist the reader in understanding aspects of this rapidly changing field of study. Representative topics include: Origins, definitions, dimensions, and variations on Curriculum Studies Curriculum development and design for schools Curricular purpose, implementation, and evaluation Contemporary issues, e.g., standards, tests, and accountability Curricular dimensions of teaching and teacher education Interdisciplinary perspectives on institutionalized curriculum Informal curricula of homes, mass media, workplaces, organizations, and relationships Impact of race, class, gender, health, belief, appearance, place, ethnicity, language Relationships of curriculum and poverty, wealth, and related factors Modes of curriculum inquiry and research Curriculum as cultural studies, exploring the formation of identities and possibilities Corporate, state, church, and military influence as curriculum Global and international perspectives on curriculum Curriculum organizations, journals, and resources Summaries of books and articles on curriculum studies Biographic vignettes of key persons in curriculum studies Relevant photographs

This book reviews past practice and theory in critical studies and discusses various trends; some papers keenly advocate a re-conceptualisation of the whole subject area, while others describe aspects of current and past practice which exemplify the "symbiotic" relationship between practical studio work and critical engagement with visual form. Rod Taylor, who has done much to promote and develop critical studies in the UK, provides us with examples of classroom practice and gives us his more recent thoughts on fundamental issues – "universal themes" in art – and gives examples of how both primary and secondary schools might develop their teaching of art through attending to themes such as "identity," "myth," and "environments" to help "re-animate the practical curriculum." Although some of the discussion in this book centres on or arises from the English National curriculum, the issues are more global, and relevant to anyone involved in developing or delivering art curricula in schools. An American perspective is given in papers by George Geahigan and Paul Duncum. Geahigan outlines an approach to teaching about visual form which begins with students' personal responses and is developed through structured instruction. In Duncum’s vision of ‘visual culture art education’ sites such as theme parks and shopping malls are the focus of students' critical attention in schools; Nick Stanley gives a lucid account of just such an enterprise, giving practical examples of ways to engage students with this particular form of visual pleasure. This publication serves to highlight some of the more pressing issues of concern to art and design teachers in two aspects. Firstly it seeks to contextualise the development of critical studies, discussing its place in the general curriculum – possibly as a discrete subject – and secondly it examines different approaches to its teaching.
