No. 310 | The Museum Experience: The Discovery of Meaning
This book serves as an introductory textbook for understanding the educational role of art museums, varying contexts in which art is viewed, relevance of aesthetic experience, and strategies to help visitors understand a work of art. It is especially recommended for those preparing to be museum educators or to work in community arts settings, for docent training, and for making future K-12 art educators aware of the teaching resources and collaborations available from community art museums.
“An invaluable resource for all 21st-century art educators within museum and school settings. The inclusion of practical applications throughout the book helps enhance significant and relevant art experiences needed by all learners in our Visual Age.”
