AED 305 - Social Philosophy and History of Art Education

3 credits
Prerequisites: AED 200, AED 201
Relationships between philosophical influences and historical practices in art education. Writings by prominent educators such as Dewey, Read, Langer, and Broudy provide a philosophical framework for analysis of theories by Cizek, Lowenfeld, Eisner, and Gardner. Their theories will be set in a social context in order to describe how the general period and the specific history of each author shaped that individual’s thinking. Comparative historical interpretations by Gaitskill, Effland, Korzenik, and others will also be explored.
