What's Funny about Art?: Children's Responses to Humor in Art.
Klein, Sheri R.
Visual Arts Research, v23 n1 p49-61 Spr 1997
Explores how elementary children reflect upon a wide variety of visual humor, and what beliefs and assumptions arise in their responses. Finds that children found amusement in popular art, but not in fine art; have shared assumptions and understandings about humor by grade two; and that visual humor can expand children's concepts of art.
