Abstract

Where do ideas about art curricula fostering elitist and culture-bound understandings of art originate? Notions of race have conditioned our understanding of art. In this paper, the author examines some eighteenth and nineteenth century sources to discover theories of rigid social ordering, both biblically and scientifically based, that influenced and continue to influence art education.
