In defense of observational practice in art and design education

Cannatella, Howard (2004) In defense of observational practice in art and design education. Journal of aesthetic education, 38 (1) . pp. 65-77. ISSN 0021-8510 [Article]


It is increasingly debatable whether observational drawing and making in nature are still regarded as principal activities of art and design learning. Against this, the aim of this article is to strengthen sympathetically a teacher's understanding of observational creative work from nature and to assert that such an approach should be central to art and design teaching and learning.
