Often the finest artists do not make the best teachers. Many frustrated college students of art know this all too well as they suffer through unstructured classes with inexperienced teachers or graduate student instructors. In these situations, it is easy to blame the teachers. But the problem is largely institutional: most students graduating with MFAs from art schools receive little if any instruction in teaching art. If you find yourself in this predicament as teacher or student, this book is for you. The first book to provide a comprehensive guide for teaching college-level art, The Art of Teaching Art is the culmination of respected artist and instructor Deborah Rockman's two decades of teaching experience. Believing that drawing is the backbone of all of the visual arts, she begins with a complete explanation of drawing concepts that apply to any subject matter, e.g., composition, sighting processes, scaling techniques, and methods for linear and tonal development. She then illustrates these concepts with step-by-step methods that easily translate to classroom exercises. Next, she applies the drawing principles to every artist's most important and challenging subject, the human figure. After an extended section on understanding and teaching perspective that explores illusionistic form and space, the focus of the book shifts to the studio classroom itself and the essential elements that go into making an effective learning environment and curriculum. From preparing materials lists and syllabi, to setting up still-lifes, handling difficult classroom situations, critiquing and grading student artworks, and shooting slides of student artworks, she leaves no stone unturned.

Excerpt from The United States Art Directory and Yearbook: A Guide for Artists, Art Students, Travellers, Etc The purpose of this little book is sufficiently explained by its title. It aspires to be a guide to artists, art students, - historical, as well as technical, - and travellers of an artistic turn of mind, in matters pertaining to the practical side of art; that is to say, in its educational, social, and mercantile bearings. With the aesthetic side of art it has nothing to do. In its plan it is similar to, although less ambitious than, the works of a like nature which have been published in Europe for some years. As it is the first attempt to give a bird's eye view of the organized efforts making in the United States in behalf of art, the reader will no doubt be inclined to look charitably upon its evident shortcomings. Nor will this charitable tendency be diminished, when it is considered that, with the exception of newspapers and periodicals, and a few of the publications of the Bureau of Education, - all of the latter, however, some years old, - no aids were available. It is manifest from this that most of the facts embodied in the lists herewith submitted had to be elicited by direct application, either by letter or personally, - a laborious proceeding under all circumstances, but rendered more difficult in this case by special conditions. Most of the societies enumerated publish no printed reports, and the answers returned to written inquiries were, in many instances, quite incomplete. If to this be added the shortness of the time necessarily allowed for doing the work, and the unfavorable character of the summer season into which it had to be crowded, the obstacles in the way of the compiler will become still more apparent. The cases in which no answers at all were returned were happily few, but the lists will show that the officials of the old-fashioned kind, who look upon every one inquiring into the interests confided to them as impertinent intruders, have not yet died out entirely. Concerning the policy followed, the reader will please notice that facts only have been given, and that in the selection of these facts no judgment has been exercised or criticism applied. In the case of the educational institutions especially, it has been the constant aim to let them speak for themselves by quoting either the printed documents issued by them, or the written reports received from persons connected with them. The facts thus obtained and the claims thus put forward are simply offered as material from which those interested can draw their own conclusions. It will be well also to state that the length of the notices has nothing whatever to do with the importance of the institutions to which they are devoted. There is apparently a curious discrepancy in this particular. But a moment's reflection will show that the well-defined activity of so prominent an association as "The Society of American Artists" is much more easily compressed into a short paragraph, than the multifarious efforts of an amateur club in some out-of-the way village. One glaring instance of incompleteness will be found in the list of colleges and universities included. It would have been interesting to show the extent to which the study of art, either theoretically or practically, is carried in all these institutions, but, for the present at least, this almost Herculean task could not be undertaken. Even so, however, the few statements of college courses given will convey some idea as to the place assigned to art in our higher institutions of learning, although it was impossible to give these courses with that completeness which might have been desirable.

This is a guidebook for art students at the college level (BA, BFA, MFA, PhD). Compared to other books on critique, this book is more colorful, more engaging, and less formal. "James Elkins is one of the world's leading educators in the visual arts. In Art Critiques: A Guide, Elkins shines his bright light across the long overlooked shadowland of studio education. Beautifully written and easy to use, this book is an absolute must for art students and faculty alike." -George Smith, Founder & President, Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts. "Elkins introduces refreshing commonsense in the tired and tiresome activity of the critique of art works by students. A dissection geared to avoid or delay a future autopsy of the field, the book uses case studies that teach as much about "how to" as they do about 'how not to.' A nice and often funny exercise in debunking, Art Critiques: A Guide is also a fascinating analysis of the successes and failures in communication among people." -Luis Camnitzer, Professor Emeritus, State University of New York, and Pedagogical Advisor to the Cisneros Foundation.

How can community art build connection in diverse communities? Where is the art in contemporary libraries? How do you bring subway art into the classroom? Drawing on an abundance of examples from Finland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain and the USA, including the NYC 2nd Ave Subway, the Detroit's Heidelberg Project, the Favel Painting Foundation and bicycle rack sculpture, Szekely inspires readers to look beyond the classroom walls to develop meaningful art experiences for students. She shows the myriad art forms, media expressions, and design professions that have the influence and potential to shape the local environment, reaching far beyond the traditional museum and gallery venue. Underpinned by a clear philosophical foundation, the field-tested approaches show readers how to go beyond the study of reproductions or dwelling on of the masters who are framed in art museums, instead having meaningful art experiences using everyday objects and diverse collective experiences. She also shows that innovative and exciting art lessons don't need large amounts of funding, transportation or even a museum within the local community. Each chapter includes photographs, talking points and key lesson ideas along with links to further resources.

The second edition of Rotenberg’s popular guide to college teaching includes additional material on teaching in a digital environment, universal design, and teaching diverse students. As in the first edition, the book provides a hands-on, quick-start guide to the complexities of the college classroom for instructors in their first five years of teaching independently. The chapters survey the existing literature on how to effectively teach young adults, offering specific solutions to the most commonly faced classroom dilemmas. The author, a former department chair and award-winning instructor, encourages the new teacher to support their students as individual learners who are engaged in a program of study beyond their individual class. A focus on the choices made during the design of the course helps the instructor coordinate their class with a department or college curriculum. An extensive discussion of the relationship between classroom design and class size, as well as tips of assessment and grading, enable the new instructor to better handle the challenges of contemporary college classrooms.
