This presentation provides an historical context for art looking practices in art education by reviewing the varied rationales for study about artifacts in the past 125 years. Remarkable examples of schools that have regularly included original art works in their environments remind us of the importance today to learn about artistic practices and aesthetic significance through reflections in response to art objects. We can also appreciate the role of thoughtful art teachers in schools and in museums to help us look more carefully at these original works.
