Call for Papers
The mission of Visual Inquiry: Learning & Teaching Art is to provide a forum for engaging the complex, rich and multifaceted process of learning and teaching art. The journal highlights the process of creating art, teaching as an art form, engaging art submissions, scholarship in teaching artistry, and the rich traditions of art making and teaching. The call for papers is open to anyone concerned with issues related to learning and teaching art. VI is rigorously peer-reviewed and is published three times a year. 

The journal seeks a serious yet experimental approach to publication that values the myriad of visual art processes in contemporary culture.

*Art appreciation
*Learning and teaching in museums
*Teaching artistry
*The role of creativity in learning and teaching

*Teaching art in primary school to higher education and beyond
*The relationship between art making and teaching
