By offering practical ideas for revealing the meaning and relevance of art to humanity, this text helps art students become effective art teachers. Unlike most art pedagogy texts, Art for Life offers a holistic approach to the art curriculum, through classroom illustrations and comprehensive art content, engaging to art students today.

Features :

  • Through life-centered, thematic instruction in art, this text helps students understand that art is about the communication of human experience, rather than the art for its own sake.
  • By providing curriculum structure this text not only introduces students to the theoretical aspects of authentic instruction, but also provides them with practical ways to implement it in their own classes.
  • Using a holistic approach, the authors promote a non-linear, interdisciplinary, and natural method of art instruction.
  • 40 illustrations provide examples for classroom use and show students participating in the exploration of life issues in contemporary art.
