Debbi B-H has suggested some very worthwhile materials for beginning
classroom discussions of beauty. I agree fully with her suggestion that
Ivan Albright's INTO THE WORLD THERE CAME A SOUL CALLED IDA (1929-30) is a
marvelous starting point. It's a picture students will readily respond
to, and one that can get us to see what might be called beautiful in works
that look anything but, at first blush. I very nice discussion of this
work can be found in Michael Parsons' book HOW WE UNDERSTAND ART (1987),
as well as in his essay, "Can Children Do Aesthetics? A Developmental
Account," in AESTHETICS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, ed. Ronald Moore (1995).
