The collected papers from three conferences about art education are documented in three volumes. The first conference addressed art education, aesthetics, and art criticism. Eighteen scholars representing classroom teachers, museum educators, and university faculty were invited to prepare papers on the general topic of aesthetics and art criticism in the classroom. The following papers are included: "Role-Playing the Aesthetician in Art Education" by R. Russell; "Beyond Culture: The Search for Aesthetic Principles" by Eldon Katter; and "Schools and Museums: Teaching Art with Art" by Julianne Agar. The second conference addressed art education and art history. It adopted a format similar to the previous conference where 18 scholars presented formal papers and were then given time to discuss their ideas informally. Papers presented included: "The Uses and Abuses of Art History" by Danielle Rice; "African Retentions" by Kimberly Camp; and "Mona Lisa: Planning for Classroom Dialogue in the Arts, Humanities--A Model" by Jacqueline Thomas. The proceedings of the third conference (on the role of the studio in art education) are documented in the final volume. Among the 21 papers in this volume are the following: "Studio Based Scholarship: Make Art To Know Art" by Brent Wilson; "Computer Graphics Overview" by Thomas Porett; and "Art Criticism as a Studio Language" by Peter Traugott.
