MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hickman''s consideration of why we make art and why it is taught asserts his support for the creative potential inherent within art education. He doesn''t resort to championing one canon over another, nor does he completely discount any research he has addressed. His open and honest consideration creates a much-needed space for discussion within the realm of education. If more educators could gain this clarity of vision, our educative systems might one day reflect the imaginings of an artist. And, to that end, we might embrace our innate curiosity and allow ourselves the opportunity to see the world with the artistry and imagination Hickman knows and seeks for all."--Stephanie Baer, "Education Review"
