The social context of 19th century art education in Nova Scotia is explored, with comparisons made between the art curricula found in the Province's public and private schools. The social context of art education in Nova Scotia is also compared to Efland's (1985) interpretation of art education in 19th century Boston. It is shown how social factors affected not only access to education but also the type of art education a student received.
