Summary "These examples of his students' course feedback attest to Steve Shipps's teaching abilities and his capacity to inspire and engage. He has written this book as a direct response to the challenge increasingly voiced by many of his students, "What is 'art, ' anyway, and why should I care?" It is a welcome riposte that brings readers into meaningful relationships with art. In the process, it teaches them to think, both critically and creatively, not only about "art" but about anything at all."--Jacket
