Art Education 11-18 by Richard Hickman


Art Education 11-18 by Richard Hickman

A much improved, second edition of this fascinating collection of essays on teaching art in secondary schools. It includes a new chapter on visual culture as well as extensive material on the changes that have occurred in this area since 2000. What kind of art would we like school and college students to produce? What kind of art do we want them to engage with? What is the process of this engagement? How should we organize the processes? By asking fundamental questions such as these, Richard Hickman and his team of contributors illustrate the new possibilities for art education in the twenty-first century and draw out the implications for classroom practice - making Art Education 11-18 the definitive guide to the subject in the postmodern era.


'This is a serious book that seeks to jolt some art and design teachers out of a rut, emphasising throughout the need for purposeful enquiry, risk-taking and creative opportunity.'
