Women Art Educators II.
Stankiewicz, Mary Ann, Ed.; Zimmerman, Enid, Ed.
In this monograph, the story of achievements and struggles of a number of women art educators from the past, in both formal and informal educational settings, is documented. There are two recurring themes in this collection of 14 essays: (1) a focus on individual educators in more traditional academic settings, and (2) the role of woman folk artists or traditional women craft artists in their native cultures. "Mary Jane Rouse: Portrait of a Dynamic Art Educator" (E. Neal) outlines the career of a dedicated teacher and a powerful administrator. "Mary Dana Hicks Prang: a Pioneer in American Art Education" (M. Stankiewicz) recounts Prang's development as an art educator who helped to popularize art and oversaw the growth of the Prang Educational Company. "Adelaide Pearson of Blue Hill, Maine" (A. Dzamba) presents the life of an art teacher and social reformer whose life was shaped by the Progressive Era at the beginning of the twentieth century. "To Test All Things: The Life and Work of Leta Stetter Hollingsworth" (E. Zimmerman) presents information about a pioneer psychologist and educator who wrote about the relationship between intelligence and art talent. "Mary Huntoon: Artist, Teacher, and Therapist" (S. Hagaman) outlines the background of an artist, art educator and administrator, and one of the first U.S. art therapists. "Natalie Robinson Cole: The American Cizek?" (P.

Salkind) details the career of Ellsworth, the chair of the art education department at the University of Kansas and a leader in the art education movement in the Midwest and the nation. "Ruth Elise Halvorsen: An Advocate of Art for All" (A. Gregory) is an interview with Halvorsen, the second woman to be president of the National Art Education Association. "Lowenfeld's First Graduate Student: Ruth Freyberger" (M.
