    The Role of Art in General Education

    Richard H. Bassett

    An examination of art education in secondary schools and colleges, asking what kinds of courses best fulfill educational and personal needs.

    The contributors to this volume are primarily concerned not with building an argument regarding "eye-training" but with the question "What kinds of art courses are necessary to fulfill the objectives of general education and also satisfy a complex set of personal needs?"

    The book contains numerous and significant illustrations on all levels of achievement in art and an extensive bibliography.
