Description: Often the finest artists do not make the best teachers. Many frustrated students know this all too well as they suffer through unstructured classes with inexperienced teachers or graduate student instructors. This problem is largely institutional, for most graduating MFAs receive little if any instruction in teaching art. If you find yourself in this predicament as teacher or student, this book is for you.

The first comprehensive guide for teaching college-level art, The Art of Teaching Art is the culmination of respected artist and instructor Deborah Rockman's two decades of teaching experience. Believing that drawing is the backbone of all of the visual arts, she begins with a complete explanation of drawing concepts that apply to any subject matter, e.g., composition, sighting processes, scaling techniques, and methods for linear and tonal development. She then illustrates these concepts with step-by-step methods that easily translate to classroom exercises. Next, she applies the drawing principles to every artist's most challenging subject, the human figure. After an extended section on understanding and teaching perspective that explores illusionistic form and space, the focus of the book shifts to the studio classroom itsef and the essential elements that go into making an effective learning environment and curriculum. From preparing materials lists and syllabi, to setting up still-lifes, handling difficult classroom situations, critiquing and grading student artworks, she leaves no stone unturned.

The Art of Teaching Art is the guide every new or experienced teacher of college-level art must have. Its helpful suggestions and numerous examples of student artwork will impartconfidence to the inexperienced and fresh inspiration to the veteran.
