Overview

The subjects of this book belong to a population that is marginalized and isolated. They are children and adults with disabilities - artists who make art in special classrooms, prisons, rural back roads, backwaters, and institutions. By focusing on this population, editor and key author Alice Wexler provides a common thread that unites traditionally separate fields of art criticism, art education, and art therapy. With firsthand experience in the field, each contributor to this volume offers critical research which challenges the non-transferable divide between us and them, encouraging art teachers, therapists, critics,and general readers alike to uncover their biases regarding the nature of art and education.
