This volume is an attempt to trace from the 19th century to the present day, the main gendered themes of modernist art education. In the period of industrial modernization, art education emphasized the importance of productive modes of creativity in "making and doing" and promoted rational "design processes" productive of masculine identities. With the decline of industrial production and with the rise in leisure, services and consumption, art education has shifted its relevance to the more feminine skills of flexibility, management, responsiveness and combinatory modes of creativity. This text looks at the way art education has always been implicated in producing gendered identities for modernity's gendered divisions of labour.
