Art, Culture, and Ethnicity.
Young, Bernard, Ed.
The 20 articles in this volume provide varying perspectives on the concepts of multiculturalism, multiethnicity, and global literacy and how to correct art curricula to include the diversity. The development and application of viable multiethnic curricula is a function of the interrelationship of pedagogy and social-cultural realities. The articles focus on various cultural, ethnic, pedagogical, and historical issues in art. Some of the articles include: (1) "Teaching Art to Disadvantaged Black Students: Strategies for a Learning Style" (Leo F. Twiggs); (2) "The Minority Family as a Mediator for Their Children's Art and Academic Education" (Bernard Young); (3) "Afro-American Culture and the White Ghetto" (Eugene Grigsby, Jr.); (4) "Art and Culture in a Technological Society" (Vesta A. H. Daniel); (5) "Teaching Art in a Multicultural/Multiethnic Society" (Carmen Armstrong); (6) "Multiculturalism in Visual Arts Education: Are America's Educational Institutions Ready for Multiculturalism?" (Murry Norman DePillars); (7) "Children's Drawings: A Comparison of Two Cultures" (W. Lambert Brittain); (8) "Multiculturalism and Art Education" (Judith Mariahazy); (9) "A Portrait of a Black Art Teacher of Preadolescents in the Inner City: A Qualitative Description" (Mary Stokrocki); (10) "Shattered Fantasy: Minority Access to Careers in Art Education" (Esther Page Hill); and (11) "Concepts and Values of Black and White Art Instructors Affecting the Transmission of the Black Visual Aesthetic in Historically Black Colleges and Universities" (Oscar L. Logan) and "A Chronological Minority Bibliography" (Elizabeth Ann Shumaker). A list of the 21 contributors follows the articles. (CK)
