This book offers art educators aesthetic, philosophical, and socio-cultural foundations of Korean art and visual culture in a global context, highlighting both Korea’s artistic traditions and contemporary art and visual culture. Until now most researchers and K-12 teachers have had limited access to Korean art and visual culture due to the lack of resources published for the Western audience and other sides of the world. Through this book, the readers will engage in Korean art forms, culture, and traditions, exploring pedagogical approaches and research topics emerging in Korea and also taking them to a global stage for intercultural research and teaching. With the purpose of exploring diverse Korean artistic traditions and their pedagogical applications for the audience around the world, the authors address both theoretical understanding and practical applications of teaching Korean art in art education.
