Art education in the United States has never been on a firmer footing than at the present time. It faces a future secure in the knowledge that during the past 10 years its social, economic, and educational values have been demonstrated and acknowledged and generally put into practice. Educational leaders no longer ignore it; rather one finds an attitude of receptivity and a desire to require it to function in every department of the school system. Not one but many causes have contributed in bringing this about. Perhaps the most important of these is a changing society and a new point of view. This chapter of the "Biennial Survey of Education in the United States, 1928-1930" discusses: (1) Early conditions; (2) Beginnings of art education; (3) Chart of art trends; (4) Changing point of view; (5) Curriculum changes in the United States; (6) The art teacher; (7) Elementary art education; (8) Major art experiences; (9) Correlation of art; (10) Art in the junior high school; (11) Art in the senior high school; (12) New course in New York City; (13) Encouragement of the talented; (14) Expressions from art leaders; (15) Summary of aims in art education; and (16) Other factors affecting art.
