Publisher Description

This book reviews past practice and theory in critical studies and discusses various trends; some papers keenly advocate a re-conceptualization of the whole subject area, while others describe aspects of current and past practice which exemplify the 'symbiotic' relationship between practical studio work and critical engagement with visual form.

Rod Taylor, who has done much to promote and develop critical studies in the UK, provides us with examples of classroom practice and gives us his more recent thoughts on fundamental issues – 'universal themes' in art – and gives examples of how both primary and secondary schools might develop their teaching of art through attending to themes such as 'identity', 'myth' and 'environments' to help 're-animate the practical curriculum'.

Although some of the discussion in this book centres on or arises from the English National curriculum, the issues are more global, and are relevant to anyone involved in developing or delivering art curricula in schools.
