Davis Publications, Inc.
The Art Education in Practice series transforms edu-
cation research and theory into practical classroom
strategies. Take it from series editor, Marilyn G.
Stewart: “I know that art teachers are very busy,
but I also know that they want to stay on top of
issues and developments in our field. The Art Edu-
cation in Practice Series was designed especially for
these dedicated individuals. I am so pleased when
teachers tell me how much they love the books.”
