Since INSEA/66 Prague (over thirty years ago) where the who's who of =

world art education scene. As the United Nations, it is a nice place to =
visit.
=20
As with most participating countries, visual arts are cast in the =
traditional art history mode of the French Academy style of =
presentation. At the elementary level (after 30 years of conferencing) =
little has changed in the area of introducing instruction in: Drawing, =
Painting, and Construction at either the conference, or at the =
elemenatary classroom levels of instruction.

Let us hope that INSEA/2000 will develop a Position Paper that =
states: "The children of the world are to be provided a sequential =
art-based core curriculum in order that they may learn (more =
effectively) how to draw, paint, and to consruct, as they are currently =
taught to read, write, and to compute."
=20
Without this mandate, art education will remain the provence of =
extra-curricular activities.
