KIRKUS REVIEW

Pearson, whose successful record in instruction in creative methods of art education entitles him to speak with authority, challenges the widely accepted theories and practices of ""the school of skillful copying"", and urges the ""school of designed creation"". He stresses the merging of folk art with professional art; shows the social importance of the new art education, and pays tribute to the scattered teachers in various art schools who keep the flame alive. The Design Workship, where his theories have come to fullest fruition, is increasingly well known.
