Art Criticism and Education

by Theodore F. Wolff, George Geahigan

Art Criticism and Education Synopsis

Noted art critic Theodore Wolff provides a practical overview of how those who teach art can apply the principles and techniques of art criticism from kindergarten through high school. Connecting the practical to the pedagogical, George Geahigan provides a historical overview of art criticism in education literature. He rejects prevailing approaches that treat the discipline as a procedure for talking or writing about works of art, asserting instead that criticism is best construed as a mode of inquiry concerned with helping individuals see meaning and value in works of art. A rare combination of the practical and theoretical, Art Criticism and Education will be an invaluable aid to anyone who teaches art.
