Art in History and History in Art.


An interesting and significant source of information and ideas on multi-culturalism, art history and other issues of importance to art teachers is ERIC ART, at Indiana University. Recent publications include Art in History and History in Art ($9.95 + S&H). Edited by Mary Erickson with Consulting Editor Gilbert Clark, this 118-page softcover compilation of seventeen lesson plans presents a wide range of approaches to art experiences integrating art making with learning related to social studies.

The lessons are equally distributed between elementary, middle school and high school, each developed by a different art teacher. The lessons vary in format and substance, but will provide useful models for curriculum development that emphasize historical and multicultural art learning. Black-and-white illustrations add visual information to this helpful and inexpensive publication.

Eric Art also publishes brief bulletins on different aspects of art education. Two recent offerings that relate to the theme of this issue are: Resources for Teaching Art from a Multicultural Point of View by Enid Zimmerman and Gilbert Clark, and Post-Modernism, Art Educators, and Art Education by Ronald N. MacGregor. These are available from Publications Manager, Social Studies Development Center, Indiana University, 2805 E. 10 St., Suite 120, Bloomington, IN 47405, (812) 855-3838.
