Spiritual Art/Art Education


Spiritual Art and Art Education

Book series –  Routledge Advances in Art and Visual Studies

pub: Routledge/Taylor & Francis, New York and London, 2014

By Janis Lander


“This book is a study of contemporary spirituality as it is practiced in the world today, characterized by its secular and inclusive nature, and applied to art and art education. It identifies the issues facing a formal introduction of contemporary spiritual concepts into a secular and multicultural arts educational environment. Lander begins by separating the notion of “the spiritual” from the study of organized religions. She uses examples of art from different cultures in contemporary spiritual systems, making the study a reference book for contemporary spirituality and spirituality in art education, with usable definitions and practical examples suitable for scholars in art and visual studies, art education, and contemporary spirituality.”
