Art Education in the United States. Bulletin, 1925, No. 38
Farnum, Royal Bailey

The time between the publication of the advance sheets on art education for the biennial. survey of 1920-1922 and the present document has seen greatly increased activity in this field of education. More clearly defined aims and objectives have become apparent in the elementary and high schools. Urgent demands for training in taste and the essentials of good color and design have arisen in unexpected directions. Industry, commerce, and the public have awakened to a partial realization at least of the economic, and cultural value of aesthetic training. In fact, the awakening has been so effective and widespread that to report adequately and completely the past two years progress in art education would require a good-sized volume. Industrial-plants, public utilities, retail establishments, business groups, organizations such as the Young Womens Christian Association (YWCA), Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA), parent-teacher associations, womens clubs, and "out-of-school" clubs throughout the country, have sought enlightenment on the subject of arts as an everyday expression. Since the problem of training in art understanding is more or less similar for all, no matter what the group may be, this bulletin will confine itself chiefly to the public-school situation, touching briefly upon other developments.
