It shall be the purpose of this paper to investigate the role of art education in terms of what it can contribute to the education of all youth of the secondary school. Recognized authorities in the fields of general education, philosophy and art education will be cited to show what the informed teaching of the visual arts can contribute to the growth of each individual and his total character. It is a further purpose of this paper to point out the obstacles that stand in the way of the realization of these objectives and to make appropriate recommendations that may be of value in terms of overcoming them.
