Hey everyone,

Does anyone have any source material (recommended books or sites) on the concept
in art education (for art educators and consequently students) of "Visual
Culture" (not to be confused with "Visual Literacy")?

If you have already accessed this information do you implement it in your art
classes?

I would like to discuss what it means conceptually and practically to any of you
who are using this information. It is a very hot and at times controversial topic
in Art Education at the present moment.

The issue of a specific curriculum and scope and sequence utilizing DBAE in
tandem with state and local guidelines is challenging in and of itself - I am
interested in sharing a discussion with all of about ways in which you implement
visual culture (if at all) into your full curriculum in general and lesson plans
in particular.

Also has anyone availed themselves of information at the Vue site?

thanks,
Carmela
