ABSTRACT
The article discusses the approaches to be used by art teachers in teaching art history to high school students. Among the guidelines that teachers have to consider when they attempt to expand the history of Western Art to the histories of world art include the importance of the art histories of Europe and Asia, interpretation within the discourse, and first-hand experience with any history of art through works of art. It emphasizes that the goal of teaching the history of art is to wrest the aspects of art from ambiguity to the continuing realm of artistic experience.
