MEASURING AESTHETIC DEVELOPMENT: A NATIONAL DIALOGUERachael Jacobs, Australian Catholic University

This edition of JACE brings together authors from Australia and England discussing issues central to ongoing development of artistic and creative education. The papers encompass four major components of progressive education; creativity, aesthetics, student participation and curriculum design. Readers will appreciate the common thread of applied educational conversations emerging through these manuscripts, as researchers/practitioners utilise classroom observations to examine in greater depth ‘real life’ arts education issues.
