The term "art education" is used somewhat loosely in connection with a wide range of school activities. Any discussion of the subject must therefore define somewhat arbitrarily the aspects with which it will deal. This chapter includes the following: (1) Drawing, painting, and constructive and decorative design, whether used to record facts of form and structure in connection with industrial and scientific work, or to interpret forms and appearances pictorially or decoratively; and (2) The advancement of artistic appreciation, whether gained by technical practice or by acquaintance with good art through some approach other than that of actual production, or by a combination of these methods. The material here presented is based upon the replies to inquiries regarding recent changes in aims and methods of art instruction, sent to State commissioners of education, and to the superintendents of schools in the three largest cities of each State, to the art departments of State and other leading universities, and upon an examination of a wide range of courses of study and of reports of art associations and educational meetings where art was a subject of discussion.
