This issue os Spectrum contains six articles devoted to the theme of helping teachers develop multicultural teaching methods by examining the relationship of art, culture, and art education. In "Multi-cultural Art: A Learning Process," Linda Kreft addresses the problem of cultural biases that children acquire over time. Patricia Stuhr in "Wisconsin's Native American Visual Art" presents a rationale for studying the art of other cultures, in particular the art of Wisconsin Native Americans. The third article, "Chicano Murals: A Continuing Cultural Tradition" by Ronald Neperud and Rochelle Robkin outlines the communication function of murals in Chicano society. In "An American Art Teacher in India: Educational Travel as a Cultural Resource," Vicki Samulyk describes India's educational system and the events and philosophies that shape art education in another country. Richard March's paper, "Close to Home and Close to the Heart: Exploring Folk Arts in Education," profiles three Wisconsin folk artists. The final paper, "Art, Culture, and Vital Issues: A Middle School Art Program" by Rae Prescott, describes a middle school art program that fosters team teaching, student peer-teaching, and an interdisciplinary approach to cultural learning.
