Stereotyping Chinese in Multicultural Art Education

This paper examines the ways in which multicultural art education, the curriculum of "Multiculturalism Canada" and a renowned instructional text lack indigenous consideration and ignore alternative concepts of scholarship of art history. Although multicultural education is considered important in Canada, the paper contends that there are significant problems in its implementation. Inappropriate rationale of the curriculum and insufficient knowledge have a tendency to promote stereotypes. In one example, the cross-cultural study of colors and symbols introduces the oversimplification and generalization of Chinese art.
