Why Art Education Lacks Social Relevance: A Contextual Analysis.
Bersson, Robert
Art Education, v39 n4 p41-45 Jul 1987
This article examines why both the individual-centered and discipline-centered approaches to art education lack social relevance. Maintains that the lack of a social orientation in these two approaches is due to our social context and our capitalistic system. Proposes that democratic principles serve as the basis of a socially relevant, multicultural approach to art education. (JDH)
