     Art Criticism and Education completes the Disciplines in Art Education
        series. In the first section, Theodore Wolff deals with the role of the
        art critic in education. He gives a practical overview of how the principles
        and practices of art criticism can be applied to the teaching of art (k-12).
        In the second, George Geahigan begins with an historical overview of art
        criticism in education literature and provides a conceptualized approach
        to critical inquiry, asserting that the most effective form of that inquiry
        is the pursuit of meaning in works of art. A rare combination of the practical
        and theoretical, Art Criticism and Education will be an invaluable
        aid to anyone involved in art education.
