Supplemental Reading
The supplemental reading pages are meant to provide visual art educators with resources that can guide their interests and practices in visual art and visual art's theories. Having a grasp of the various texts offered throughout history is essential for talking about and explaining visual art process, practice, and production. The pages stat with Modernism and Postmodernism, because these two eras in particular influence much of the work produced at this very moment.
