ABSTRACT
Although the new art education—the ideals of which are most clearly embodied in the discipline-based art education movement—seems to have won the day in the scholarly literature, art curricula in colleges and universities continue to embrace a studio emphasis and a de facto doctrine of art known as formalism. These orientations may prove to be counter-productive in the training of art education majors who will have to meet the challenge of teaching art criticism, art history, and aesthetics in a pluralistic world of art. To supplement, if not counteract, the influences of formalism, this author suggests that the field consider recent theories of art, particularly those developed by Dickie and Danto. Undergraduate art and art education majors, as well as their teachers, should be versed in such theories.
