EXPLORING ART: A GLOBAL, THEMATIC APPROACH, Revised Fifth Edition teaches students art basics and then shows how important it is in everyday life. Art from all over the world deals with physical survival, the spiritual life, politics, cultural life and personal identity. EXPLORING ART’s thematic organization allows students to experience art as powerfully connected to their lives. "Art Experiences" features in every chapter encourage students to make art. The newly revised Chapter 15, "Art in Your Life," shows how art is all around us and where students can find it. Students learn to analyze art, and then by extension how to analyze design products, advertising, fashion and craft.
