Relationships of Theories and Practice in Art and Design Teaching

Volume 11.2   1992

BROOKES, COLIN

 

Colin Brookes discusses four theories which he suggests are in various ways important in the identification of content in art and design teaching. They are described here as imitational, emotional, formal and functional. No single theory can provide a necessary and sufficient basis for education in art and design, but taken together they can inform practice.
