Creative Art Teaching: Is It in Line with Modern Educational Theories?


by Belle Boas 1927

EDUCATIONAL theories have changed so much in the past two decades that it has been a difficult matter for teachers to keep pace with the change, particularly as it affects certain special subjects. History and geography have been joined to form the new social sciences, aiming for a more comprehensive and unified subject matter; arithmetic has discarded its old traditional problems; and spelling has condescended to investigate children's vocabularies rather than to take words by chance out of dictionaries, fascinating as those strange words often were to children of the past generation. But art, perhaps because of certain standard sets of drawing books used in many cities, regardless of locality or conditions, or because of the old "drawing" tradition which dies hard, or perhaps because of rigid state examinations in which the only standard has been a high efficiency in accurate representation, has been somewhat slow to break away from established ways.
