Davis Publications has a book I use in my HS classroom called, "The Visual
Experience". The first chapter deals with that very issue. It shows
pictures of all kinds of art and quizzes students on which they think is art. Of
course all of pictures ARE art. They are surprised with the answer. You may
want to send for a TE copy.

Hey All, I am revamping my curric. and for the first week of school I
really want to start with a strong "What is Art" Unit, of explorations,
Does anyone else do this? Can anyone share some resources or support
handouts they might use for this unit?
