Updating Undergraduate Graphic Design Programs: Recommendations For Including Communications And A History Of Technology In Graphic Design Education In Order To Better Prepare Graphic Design Students For Their Profession, Jacquie Drews Aug 1997

Updating Undergraduate Graphic Design Programs: Recommendations For Including Communications And A History Of Technology In Graphic Design Education In Order To Better Prepare Graphic Design Students For Their Profession, Jacquie Drews

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

The knowledge required for today's graphic design students to become well-rounded communication professionals is changing due to new technologies and new communication media. Revising educational curricula to satisfy these new needs must be addressed in the undergraduate graphic design programs that are currently being offered by art schools, colleges, and universities.

A review of the literature, along with surveys of selected design firms in the Washington, DC area and professors at institutions offering undergraduate graphic design degrees, shows that communications studies and a background in the history of technology are two additional curriculum areas that would help to better ...

A Comparison Of First And Eighth Grade Students' Artistic Spontaneity And Creative Expression, Mary Deborah Abel May 1997

A Comparison Of First And Eighth Grade Students' Artistic Spontaneity And Creative Expression, Mary Deborah Abel

Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to investigate the students' creative expression as influenced by formal education. The problems of this study were to determine if there was a difference between the perception and use of color by students in primary grades with junior high students, and also if there was a difference displayed in drawing spontaneity related to age.

Two art classes totaling fifty-four students comprised Group A, the primary students, and one class of thirty eighth grade students made up the junior high group for Group B. Students in both groups received a common introductory lesson relating the ...

Editorial, Karen T. Keifer-Boyd

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The group of six articles in this volume explore the theme “invisible in plain sight.” The authors examine the structures that enable or disable cultural visibility. They question: Who creates the visions of the world? Whose views are pre-empted?


Photography(S) And Cultural Invisibility: Symptoms And Strategies, Michael J. Emme Jan 1997

Photography(S) And Cultural Invisibility: Symptoms And Strategies, Michael J. Emme

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

What does it mean to be visible? We cross paths and we see each other. Simple. Why bother asking the question? The fact that artists and cultural theorists have for the past decade or more been energetically pursuing precisely this question of visibility is one of the dominant features of the visual arts today. At the heart of this collective inquiry is a concern to discover the social nature of both vision and pictures. This concern rises out of the almost common-sense realization that much of what we “know” about the world we know because of pictures and that despite ...


Televised Gender Roles In Children’S Media: Covert Messages, Gaye Leigh Green Jan 1997

Televised Gender Roles In Children’S Media: Covert Messages, Gaye Leigh Green

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Encountering stereotypes promulgated by media representations is a daily occurrence. Information perpetuated in the media continually influences how people view the world. Female gender roles portrayed in television, for example, have altered from the 1950s stay-at-home mother portrayed by Barbara Billingsley in Leave It To Beaver, to postmodern portrayals of independent actress/mothers such as Jane Seymour. The messages that such diverse personifications suggest of motherhood are equally disparate. While television once perpetuated images of mothers as in the home caregivers, this domestic characterization has evolved into moms who now venture actively into the world.


The Perception Of Non-Perception: Lessons For Art Education With Downcast Eyes (Part One: Trompe-L’Oeil And The Question Of Radical Evil), Jan Jagodzinski Jan 1997

The Perception Of Non-Perception: Lessons For Art Education With Downcast Eyes (Part One: Trompe-L’Oeil And The Question Of Radical Evil), Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The Roman historian Pliny recounts a story that occurred during Periclean Athens. I will utilize this story, as a trope to undertake an interrogation of perception as it is commonly understood and currently practiced by art educators in schools. In order to deconstruct vision/blindness, or the perception/non-perception binary, I have examined the psychoanalytic paradigm of Jacques Lacan. His current interpreters provided the conceptual tools for such an undertaking. Given that the question of representation has become a key sign-post of postmodernism, art educators must conceptualize a trajectory for itself in the 21st century. Part One of such a ...

Art, Education, And The Bomb: Reflections On An International Children’S Peace Mural Project, Tom Anderson Jan 1997

Art, Education, And The Bomb: Reflections On An International Children’S Peace Mural Project, Tom Anderson

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

As a community muralist (T. Anderson, 1985) and contextualist I believe that the purpose of art is communication from one human being to another about things that count (R. Anderson, 1990; Dissanayake, 1988; Lippard, 1990). This does not mean that we disregard the aesthetic component—the “wonder”—in an artwork. Rather, it implies that the aesthetic serves an extrinsic function beyond its supposed raison d’être. That function, which is usually both prosaic and symbolic, is to serve as a marker that in some way defines the people who make, use, and view artworks or aesthetically framed objects (R. Anderson ...

Living The Discourses, Ed Check, Grace Deniston, Dipti Desai Jan 1997

Living The Discourses, Ed Check, Grace Deniston, Dipti Desai

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Factors of social class, race, gender, and sexuality are important to any understanding of the social processes of art. Often, art educators discuss these factors in abstract terms, thereby confining discussion in art education to a set of identifiable variables constructed as static, universal, and homogeneous. The particularities of living and working in educational spaces structured along racist, classist, sexist, and homophobic lines remain largely unexplored. Recent scholarship in art education has begun to examine the particularities of these social relations (Garber, 1995; Stuhr, Krug, & Scott, 1995). But the fractures, dangers, and the erasures are not being articulated in ways ...


A Mountain Cultural Curriculum: Telling Our Story, Christine Bellengee Morris Jan 1997

A Mountain Cultural Curriculum: Telling Our Story, Christine Bellengee Morris

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Jim Wayne Miller, professor of English at Western Kentucky University, declared that school children in West Virginia have more exposure to other cultures than they do to their own. His concern was that, “Lack of knowledge about the area’s history helps perpetuate negative stereotypes about the region’s mountain people” (Associated Press, 1994). If the Mountain Culture, to which many of the students belong, is not reflected in the curriculum, their identity, voice, heritage, history, and arts are censored and the Mountain Cultural youth are rendered invisible in their own state. Results from a survey of three elementary schools ...
