Based on a wide variety of academic and practical sources, the book considers the transformation of the aesthetic experience, the general concept of art education, in the modern multicultural milieu. To illustrate the current streams in contemporary American art pedagogy, it embraces a broad spectrum of references, including the classification of art museums in the USA and museums’ school projects.
