The article focuses on epistemologies of art. Epistemology is the philosophical investigation of the nature and origin of knowledge. Art education, in all its various forms, is not only the practice of coming to know about art, but also the study of the character of this knowledge. Research and theory in art education involve investigations into the natures and origins of art knowledge. Knowledge about art is dependent upon the interpretive and interactive character of making and viewing. Condition of knowing may be an important contribution of art education to the educational system.
