I have this book and it is very interesting. It focuses a lot on college level art classes. You can get it at

I got mine a few years ago at Barnes and Noble.

Here is a post I saved from AP list. They had a recent thread on
"favorite books". I only saved Patty's:

A book I look to often is James Elkins "Why Art Cannot be Taught"
it's really not what the title suggests but an excellent commentary on
the critique process ( how to make them more helpful) and there is a
lot of history about how art has been and is taught.

It's a bit iconoclastic, but I think sound in judgment. It's changed a=20
lot about how speak in critiques.

I have not seen this book personally. You might check to see if your
library can get it on inter-library loan.
