ABOUT THIS BOOK
Art Criticism and Education completes the Disciplines in Art Education
series. In the first section, Theodore Wolff deals with the role of the
art critic in education. He gives a practical overview of how the principles
and practices of art criticism can be applied to the teaching of art (k-12).
In the second, George Geahigan begins with an historical overview of art
criticism in education literature and provides a conceptualized approach
to critical inquiry, asserting that the most effective form of that inquiry
is the pursuit of meaning in works of art. A rare combination of the practical
and theoretical, Art Criticism and Education will be an invaluable
aid to anyone involved in art education.
