Landscapes of Aesthetic Education
Author: Stuart Richmond and Celeste Snowber
Date of Publication: Dec 2009
This book brings together the reflections of two experienced artists and arts educators working in the fields of teacher education. The authors Stuart Richmond, a photographer, and Celeste Snowber, a dancer and poet, see aesthetic education as aiming to extend creativity, appreciation of the arts and nature, and the sensuous qualities of everyday life, to gain a more intimate understanding of the self and the world. Using research arts based methods they offer powerful and vividly narratives in between poetic, philosophical, and artistic ways of writing to support a more embodied and holistic aesthetics.
