MoreProfiles of art education in nineteen countries around the world by citizens or longtime residents of those countries comprise the core of this book. Guidelines for the cross-cultural study of art education are presented by the editors in a general introduction and three part introductions, and also by contributing specialists.The nineteen national profiles, with accompanying examples of childrens artwork, make up the largest section of the book, Part II.The three chapters in Part I review research that has identified, on one hand, certain universal characteristics of childrens artwork attributable to common human stages of development, and, on the other hand, certain differing and unique cultural influences.

The need for further research on this distinction is emphasized. Contributors to Part I are Elliot W. Eisner, William Ives and Howard Gardner, and Marjorie and Brent Wilson.The three chapters in Part III discuss three major problems in art education: the use of museum visits, the worldwide attempt to establish valid tests of teacher and pupil proficiency in art, and the design of sound and useful cross-cultural research.

Resources for such research are described. Contributors to Part III are Robert Ott and Lois Swan Jones, William Bradley, and Frances E. Anderson.Professionals and students in art education can broaden their perspective through Art in Education, while their counterparts in child development and psychology can gain insights into the creative process.Profiles: Western Europe England, Finland, Germany, Netherlands- Eastern Europe Hungary, Poland, Soviet Union- Middle East and South Asia Afghanistan, Egypt, India, Israel- East Asia and the Pacific Australia, China, Japan- Africa Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa- The Americas Brazil, United States.
