Barkan (No. 287)
MARY ZAHNER
Barkan is the first book to give the reader an in-depth feel for art education's struggle to define itself. It reveals the source and development of key concepts influencing the theory and practice of art education in the mid-twentieth century. It depicts Manuel Barkan's prominent roll in the shaping the character of contemporary art education. "The argument continues to rest on the fruitless dichotomous level of appreciation or creative expression, skills or free expression, esthetic or social values, fine arts or industrial arts, handicraft or machine made objects, practical value or leisure time interest, integration or segregation, for the talented or the average..." To do this, says Barkan, ""art educators need to enter into thoughtful and disciplined modifications of the teaching programs they conduct, disciplined in the sense that they reflect upon their purposes and evaluate their action as teachers in terms of these purposes."
