The Purpose of Art Teaching The true purpose of art teaching is the education of the whole people for appreciation A training that calls for a very direct exercise of the critical powers, developing judgment and skill, is a training that will increase the individuals efficiency whatever his calling may be. The general public has not thought of art education in this way, but has acknowledged the value of drawing, especially when it can serve some utilitarian purpose. A better understanding of the true usefulness of art recognizes creative power as a divine gift, the natural endowment of every human soul, showing itself at first in the form that we call appreciation. This appreciation leads a certain number to produce actual works of art, greater or lesser, perhaps a temple, perhaps only a cup, but it leads the majority to desire finer form and more harmony of tone and color in surroundings and in things for daily use. It is the individuals right to have full control of these powers. Even from the economic side, that education is deficient which leaves one unable to judge of form and color when he is constantly required to use such judgment.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
