Undergraduate art programs are at a crossroad. The emphasis on the teaching of traditional skills is in question. Art educators must consider the value of past practices as they reevaluate their undergraduate programs. With the reevaluation of the teaching of art, the nagging, age old questions: Why is there art? What is
art? can not help but to be addressed. These questions transcend geographic boarders, cultural differences and time. These questions are the foundation of art and the teaching of art.
