What are the most important/relevant research studies and academic journal articles on the topic of art education advocacy? Now that this semester is coming to a close, I'm interested in doing some reading while I still have access to a university library.

I have one more year of library access (with subscriptions to journals, databases, etc), and I want to make the most of it, especially between semesters. I want to learn more about topics that interest me, and I'm beginning with the question of why art education is important and valuable. I'm interested in knowing which studies are considered the most important or seminal on this topic. I've seen some advocacy materials from non-profit organizations, etc, but I'd like to go to the actual source of published research.
I'm not very experienced in library use, so the more information you have about the articles or studies you recommend, the easier time I will having finding them! Thanks all. I look forward to reading!
