The second edition of the fascinating collection of essays on teaching art in secondary schools, boasting 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.
"The authors speak with authority about their different disciplines in the arts. Their recommendations are based on an understanding of how schools function and reflect an abiding concern for students. The ideas and arguments put forward here merit the attention of an international audience of educators." George Geahigan, Purdue University "This book will act as a touchstone of ideas in an uncertain period of flux" JADE
