Call For Papers: Visual Inquiry: Learning & Teaching Arts
Submissions are due on or before Sept. 1, 2011.

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. Published three times a year and peer reviewed, the print-based journal will launch its first publication in Jan. 2011. 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.

The journal seeks a serious yet experimental approach to publication that values the myriad of visual art processes in contemporary culture. Readable to the outsider yet encouraging and challenging to the experienced artist-teacher, the journal will fill a niche in art and art education with a breadth and enthusiasm missing in contemporary art and art education journals.

Each issue will feature:

1)    Academic peer reviewed articles
2)    Interviews with artist-teachers
3)    Artwork and statements emphasizing learning and teaching
4)    Reviews of books
5)    Reviews of exhibitions
6)    Reviews of significant art educational experiences
7)    Reviews of relevant conferences

*Art appreciation        *Learning and teaching in museums
