A Report for Urban America, Inc. on the Education of Children and Adults in Aesthetic Awareness of the Environment of Man.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison.
This report results from a symposium held to study aesthetic education in terms of concepts, related experience, methodology, and future research and implementation. An introductory survey of pertinent literature including a bibliography reflects current related thought. The conference first emphasized the determination of objectives and the related means of achieving these goals; next the introduction of urban aesthetics into educational institutions was discussed. Papers concerning the complex implications of poverty and urban aesthetics and the relationships between cities and schools are included to demonstrate the type of conditions currently being faced. Recommendations are then made which demonstrate the need for more environmental involvement, list means through which specific concepts could be taught, and suggest continued collaboration in this area of study.
