Research For Existential Choice, Karen A. Hamblen Jan 1988

Research For Existential Choice, Karen A. Hamblen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Chet Bowers (1984) has developed a theory of how a critical consciousness of our cultural typifications can be developed through an in-depth and elaborated understanding of aspects of a given situation or problem. In this paper, his theory is applied to the role research plays in art education. It is proposed that our existential choices in art education are directly proportionate to the amount and complexity of the research we have available and the extent to which we understand and can apply this research for specific purposes. The lack of research in essential instructional areas as well as the lack ...


Art, Football And The Politics Of Recognition, Pete Helzer, Helen Liggett Jan 1988

Art, Football And The Politics Of Recognition, Pete Helzer, Helen Liggett

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Richard Brown, Professor of Art History at Pacific Lutheran University, recently published an article synoptically titled "Regionalism, a Tenacious Myth.” Most surprising was that it appeared in Signature, a low budget Northwest arts newspaper out of Seattle, Washington. The appeal of Signature is its plebeian accessibility: descriptive reviews, pragmatic advice on competitions, personality profiles, and an unpretentious gallery guide. For example, it is the perfect place to find the latest word on the Snohomish County Craft Guild. In the differentiation between theory and practice, Signature represented the voice of practice, that is, until Professor Brown's theory piece let down ...


Commentary, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 1988

Commentary, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The questions Professor Kupffer's article raise concerning the relationship between image and the word, have been, by and large, ignored in modern aesthetic thought. An artificial separation of these two media of expression had been, since the Renaissance, characteristic of western philosophical thought. Leonardo, Cellini and Michelangelo all wrote treatises In order to place art on the same footing as the literati's words. A quick scan of the philosophical record suggests that the deep schism persists between the image and the word which manifests itself as a bifurcation between rationality and irrationality. To name but a few of ...


Aesthetic Socialization And The Young Child, Sally Hagaman Jan 1988

Aesthetic Socialization And The Young Child, Sally Hagaman

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

An examination of the process of aesthetic socialization at the preschool level reveals communication, through direct and indirect teacher behaviors and classroom environment, of "taken for granted" aesthetic assumptions. Examples, such as the use of naturalism or realism as the major criterion for judging art and reinforcement of social skills like diligence and neatness through art activities, are examined in light of educationist and teacher contexts. Implications include the need for examination of aesthetic assumptions and their transmission by art educators who work with young children, train teachers, and/or plan art curricula.


Art Educators’ Responsibility To Cultural Diversity: Or “Where Are You Goin Wid Alla My Stuff?”, Kristen G. Congdon Jan 1988

Art Educators’ Responsibility To Cultural Diversity: Or “Where Are You Goin Wid Alla My Stuff?”, Kristen G. Congdon

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The responsibility of art educators to recognize and study the art and context of as many populations as possible is examined in this article. Examples of how artistic expressions have been borrowed, used in different contexts and otherwise removed from their original cultural context are given, and examples of ways that art teachers can help to recognize origins and the artistic functions of many cultures are suggested. By placing art in its context and studying it as it changes, students may begin to understand the artistic source, appreciate the importance of the creative context, and begin to see multi-cultural dimensions ...


Toward An Aesthetic Androgynous Mentality In Society: A Personal View, Duke Madenfort Jan 1988

Toward An Aesthetic Androgynous Mentality In Society: A Personal View, Duke Madenfort

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

When I was an adolescent, I spent an unusual amount of time, indoors, alone, drawing and painting. I preferred staying inside doing art to going outside and playing games like baseball and football with other boys. The fact that drawing and painting, as traditionally and conventionally practiced, are solitary acts and done mostly in studios away from the distractions of the outer world and the, to me, boring talk of "ordinary" people didn't bother me at all.


Another Look At The Aesthetics Of The Popular Arts, Edward G. Lawry Jan 1988

Another Look At The Aesthetics Of The Popular Arts, Edward G. Lawry

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

About twenty years ago, Abraham Kaplan delivered a lively and memorable paper to the American Philosophical Association on the aesthetics of the popular arts. Appearing during the heyday of formalist criticism of the arts in America, the clear condemnation of the popular arts in his opening paragraph surprised no one. But many things have happened in the last twenty years to make us want to rethink the casual identification of popular art with "dis-value" that Kaplan takes for granted: the rise in popularity of folk music, the transformation of rock and roll by the Beatle's and others, the advent ...


Understanding Popular Culture: The Uses And Abuses Of Fashion Advertising, Mary Stokrocki Jan 1988

Understanding Popular Culture: The Uses And Abuses Of Fashion Advertising, Mary Stokrocki

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Today's young people are bombarded by messages. They should be taught to evaluate what they hear, to understand how ideas are clarified or distorted, and to explore how the accuracy and reliability of an oral (visual) message can be tested (Boyer, 1983, p.92). Students are often manipulated by media messages and they are unaware of the uses and abuses of the media by advertisers. In many ways such manipulation makes students dependent on materialistic rewards, regardless of moral concern. As a remedy, Lanier (1966) advocates developing a critical consciousness, "an informed awareness of the social forces which oppress ...

Editor's Statement And Table Of Contents Jan 1988

Editor's Statement And Table Of Contents

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Vince Lanier once said in his inimitably leading way (with that gleam in his eye) that art is what hangs on the walls in the museums and galleries in New York and Los Angeles. Unfortunately, in light of the Art in America syndrome which dominates not only the art community but also seemingly the art education community, the joke may be on you, Vince. You may be right. Art reflects and perpetuates culture as does education. Culture, as an important aspect of human evolution must have a wide gene pool of ideas to maintain the healthy balance necessary for its ...


Seeking Cultural Understanding: Knowing Through The Art Of The Picturebook As One Of Five Modalities, Rogena M. Degge, Kenneth Marantz Jan 1988

Seeking Cultural Understanding: Knowing Through The Art Of The Picturebook As One Of Five Modalities, Rogena M. Degge, Kenneth Marantz

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Caught in the maelstrom of scholarly debate about cross-cultural values, we seek some straws for our intellectual salvation. Groups of theoreticians and practitioners, like schools of fish roiling in the seas, create waves. Some groups, like those who supported the exhibition of Primitive and Modern artifacts at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, are historical revisionists seeking new values through the alleged "influences and affinities" they attempt to demonstrate. Others more mundanely offer youngsters cardboard and paint so they may produce their own Kachina dolls in order to come to grips with the fundamental values of an ...


The Interpretation Of Modern Art—What Is Possible When Dealing With The Explication Of Art, Heinrich Kupffer Jan 1988

The Interpretation Of Modern Art—What Is Possible When Dealing With The Explication Of Art, Heinrich Kupffer

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The attempt to interpret modern art comes from different approaches and moves along several lines of thought. Generally speaking, together these approaches leave no doubt that a linguistic explanation is possible and legitimate. This assumption, which forms a bridge between lord and picture, is a decisive, often uncontested problem of aesthetic logic. Spectators should watch out for the traps and fallacies. They may expect that the clear statement a work of art unambiguously makes for them, the unseemingly apparent interpretation of the work, leads back to a lack of understanding of the "real" thoughts and precise statement of the artistic ...


Abstract Expressionism And Art Education: Formalism And Self-Expression As Curriculum Ideology, Kerry Freedman Jan 1988

Abstract Expressionism And Art Education: Formalism And Self-Expression As Curriculum Ideology, Kerry Freedman

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In the 1940's and 1950's, formalism and self-expression theories about abstract expressionism were incorporated into art education. However, as these products of the art community became a part of curriculum, the social and political foundations of the art and the theories were ignored. A school art style was emphasized that contained only selected elements of Greenberg's formalist analysis of abstract expressionism. Curriculum also contained a reduction of Rosenberg's theory of expressive process to some pseudo-expressive technical characteristics. While the argument is not made that there was a studied and analytical reinterpretation of these critics' theories in ...
