It is part of my attempt to begin a dialog to get people thinking of art education in terms of its actual value to education and to society. Art Education magazine's last issue was an attempt to start a dialog regarding creativity in general and its value, but I think it stopped short of examining the idea of visual art as the focus of so much of our culture and society. I am looking at visual awareness and visual literacy in terms of their impact on the culture and the classroom. The long term goal is to make art education part of the "core" subjects in schools. Give this a look and let me know what you think. And please send this up the line and see who else may be interested in this idea.
