Attention all Art Professors and Art Teachers!
My sister's first book, Studies in Art: Institutions, Form, Materials, and Meaning by Ashley V. Blalock was just published by Kendall-Hunt!
It is a college-level art appreciation text that stresses the construction of art institutions (art education, museums, art history) as well as fundamental concepts of art. Also included is a section describing the materials of art-making ranging from the traditional to more recent developments such as installation and sound art.
The book features images of some famous works of art (Fallingwater, Mona Lisa, etc) as well as her own illustrations of key concepts. She is using this book as the basis for her art appreciation course at California State University San Bernardino.

If you are an art teacher or art professor, you will love this book.
