Uniting Body, Mind, and Spirit through Art Education: A Guide for Holistic Teaching in Middle and High School
Bates, Jane K.
National Art Education Association
"Uniting Body, Mind, and Spirit Through Art Education: A Guide for Holistic Teaching in Middle and High School" empowers art learners to have experiences that engage the spirit along with the body and the mind in deeper ways of seeing, being, and relating in the world. This timely resource, written to support both the veteran educator and the preservice teacher, addresses holistic teaching, as well as the purpose, place, and power of art. Experienced practitioner Jane K. Bates shares her own journey as an art educator, by providing examples for anyone wishing to explore a body/mind/spirit approach to teaching art. It invites art educators: to consider why they are teaching, whom they are teaching, and toward what end; to develop practices that address the characteristics of the learner as well as the content of the subject; and to seek ways to guide learners into deep, meaningful, artful engagement in life--through art.
