Abstract: 
This paper asserts that as the art of Western European derivation is culturally specific the consequent art education systems based on such models reflect the same particularity. According to the author recent shifts in art education which have questioned child-centred approaches and favoured sociological and epistemological models have still failed to deal with substantive matters of the interpretation and recognition of cultural difference in form and function in art. The paper examines the crucial curriculum question of the nature of learning associated with the making of images such as the colonisation of cultures, distinctions of art, craft, design and manufacture, subject hierarchies and art education politics.
