"This book will appeal principally to Canadian art educators but there is much here for those elsewhere, partly in the form of that `home news from abroad' which offers, albeit analogously as well as historically, insights into one's own condition and partly because the accounts here are of substantial intrinsic worth and quality. The ten chapters provide a vivid picture of the evolution of art education in Canada from the nineteenth century to the present. Given that Canadian art education is the sum of disparate parts, this book is an interesting, worthwhile and serious attempt to grasp the genesis of the whole." International Journal of Art & Design Education "... a collection of essays that effectively lay the groundwork for a history of art education in Canada ... interweaving a complex rhizomatic narrative of intertwining details and names that provide a rich tapestry of connections and details that only someone with over thirty years of experience and knowledge of the Canadian art context could have done. With this background it becomes possible to see [for example] how the Arts and Crafts Movement and the cultivation of art for moral and democratic citizenship could be used for ideological ends." University of Toronto Quarterly "This book addresses many of the untold histories of art education in Canada. Perhaps most significantly these essays do not focus solely on schools but look at many other sites in culture where notions of drawing and art are taught and learned over a lifetime. Together they constitute a survey of some of the major trajectories of research within the history of art education." Cheryl Meszaros, public programs, Vancouver Art Gallery
