Drawing Education – Worldwide!

Continuities - Transfers – Mixtures

From early modern to modern times, drawing was firmly anchored in the realities of European society as a cultural technique . Based on this fact, the present volume asks for the first time about the significance of drawing and drawing education in other cultural areas. Indigenous methods of drawing and sign-learning in Arabic, Asian, Latin American, North American and European countries are addressed, as well as historical transfer processes of didactic methods, aesthetic norms and educational institutions of drawing instruction.
