This lecture introduces the theory and practice of art education at the Lab Schools of the University of Chicago. The main tenets of Dewey’s educational philosophy that have been implemented at the Lab Schools are discussed: Experiential and cooperative learning, connection to the student’s life, and becoming a better citizen. It provides some examples of teaching and learning to demonstrate how those tenets would be put into practice in the 21st century art education in the lower and middle schools.
