Report of the Commission on Art Education.
Hausman, Jerome J., Ed.
Eleven reports on the topic of art education comprise this volume which is arranged into four major parts. Part one, Art Education, presents three reports. The first report examines the bases of pressures upon art education, and suggests the nature of the program that should emerge. The significance of the visual in the world today, in art, and as an aspect of technology which reflects the radical change that has occurred in the appearance of our environment, and the nature of the aesthetic experience are explored in the next two reports. The second part of the volume deals generally with the teaching of art. The development of art education, studied from an historical perspective, offers insights to better deal with art education in the present. Other articles, concerned with curriculum and the teaching of art in elementary and secondary schools, focus on examining the fundamental learnings to be achieved in art classes and how these learnings can apply in different teaching situations. Part three discusses the art education profession, offering insights on the person who teaches an art program and dealing with the disciplines that bear upon his effectiveness; Bases for art teacher preparation; and research in art education. The last part summarizes the meaning and significance for education in art. (Author/SJM)
