Although educators are increasingly interested in art education research, there are few anthologies tackling the subject. Research in Art & Design Education answers this call, summarizing important issues in the field such as non-text based approaches and interdisciplinary work.

Contributions from internationally renowned researchers explore a broad range of topics in art education, highlighting particular problems and strengths in the literature. The collection features examples of research projects previously published in the International Journal of Art & Design Education. An indispensable and engaging resource, this volume provides a long-awaited aid for students and teachers alike.

'Research in Art & Design Education confirms Picasso’s claim that artists do not seek, but find; thus capturing the real meaning of art’s doing and how in doing art, we learn. Under Richard Hickman’s careful editorship, this book boldly makes the case that [research in art and design education] is a discipline invested in the exciting prospects of art’s humanity and the design by which humans work together for a better world. ' – John Baldacchino, Columbia University

'Research in Art & Design Education: Issues and Exemplars succeeds by identifying many of the key issues at play in art and design research and by providing a range of examples and exemplars to articulate individual activities. It is useful as a snapshot of where we are today but also in helping to add to a general body of knowledge allowing us to build upon.' – Aidan Rowe, Art, Design Media Subject Centre
