Newman, Joan A.
This report is a summary of art programs research; an analysis of national, state, and local (Mount Vernon, Washington) art education is outlined. The analysis is constructed from: materials entered into the ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) system in the 1980s; the 1987 State of Arts Education in Washington Schools survey; and comments by the State Supervisor of Visual and Performing Arts and others. National concerns in arts education as well as the specific concerns in Washington State are discussed in the context of the educational reform movement of the 1980s. The response to these concerns at both the national and state level is summarized. Model programs from around the nation are highlighted. Particular activities within Northwest ESD (Educational Service District) 189 are presented. A 32-item bibliography is included. (DB)
