Crossing the Threshold to 21st Century Art Education

“It is ironic that in today’s schools, which depend increasingly on expensive audiovisual equipment to bring secondhand news about the outside world into the classroom, there exists a fine device that is rarely used to its full advantage–the door. This simple apparatus allows students to step outside and encounter a world far richer than the reduced and predigested shadow-of-the-world our schools offer in its stead.”

Peter London
(1994, Step Outside: Community-Based Art Education, p. 5)
