The Visual Inquiry Journal provides a forum for engaging the multifaceted process of learning and teaching art; is published three times a year and is peer reviewed. The journal evaluates visual art processes in contemporary culture, focusing on scholarship and art education.The current submissions (articles, research papers, art projects, personal reflections, image-based features, essays and book reviews) are selected for a Special Issue on Drawing Practice in Art Education. This guest issues focuses on the role of drawing in contemporary art education and proposes to address the ways in which drawing as theory and practice contributes to new approaches, innovative methods of teaching practice and teaching strategies that use the medium of drawing. Proposals from practitioners, art and design educators and researchers across the disciplines of fine art and design, media and communication, textiles, fashion and craft are currently peer-reviewed. This collection discusses the ways in which contemporary drawing is practiced, interpreted and disseminated across a diverse range of educational practices and contexts. The guest issue of the Visual Inquiry Journal features topics ranging from the interdisiciplinarity of drawing in art education and the function of drawing in teaching specific components of the art curriculum; to innovative models of teaching and learning based on drawing and the role of drawing in visualizing ideas and concepts; as well as representing drawing as a tool and method for the development of the arts in education alongside new drawing techniques in art, craft and design. The contributions illustrate practice-based art projects that use drawing, highlighting the role of drawing as a problem solving tool for testing ideas, as an experimental teaching approach and as a cognitive model of learning across disciplines.
