The following series of four articles represents some of my current concerns in art education. The articles are a result of explorations in contemporary writings by people from various fields of endeavor and a condensation and evaluation of the input from these several sources. The first three articles are a progression from current rationale in art education, to the importance of art in formulating values relative to our environment, to a discussion of the use of the t'elevision medium in art education. The fourth article is in the form of a T.V. workbook that might be used in art (or other) classes to provide activities for a study of the medium.

Each article may be considered individually, expressing a complete but interrelated thought, but taken as a whole these articles help to articulate my personal approach to art education, my belief in the use of art in service to society and, specifically, my concern for the creative study and use of television in the art classroom. The concerns reflected herein stem from four year 1s experience teaching junior and senior high school art students and represent a desire on my part to make exploration in the field of art education eminently meaningful and applicable to everyday experience.
