Art Context: Free Not Free: An Installation By Indira Freitas Johnson, David Henry, Indira Freitas Johnson Oct 2001

Art Context: Free Not Free: An Installation By Indira Freitas Johnson, David Henry, Indira Freitas Johnson

Journals

Exhibition Notes, Number 14, Spring 2001. What Is Really Free? Acts of kindness and the stories people tell: an Interview. Between February and June of this year, Indira Freitas Johnson traveled each week from the Chicago area to work with a literacy group at the Knight Memorial Branch of the Providence Public Library. Starting with these students, recent immigrants learning English, Johnson began to collect stories of occasions where people had given "freely” of their time and spirit for the nourishment of others. With the assistance of five graduate students from Rhode Island School of Design, Johnson expanded her collection ...


Self-Criticism As Experienced By Performing Artists A Phenomenological Study, Rosemary Hakes Jun 2001

Self-Criticism As Experienced By Performing Artists A Phenomenological Study, Rosemary Hakes

Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to describe and document the essence of the experience of self-criticism for performing artists with the aim of providing recommendations for educational and therapeutic purposes. Moustakas (1994) defines essence as “that which is common or universal, the condition or quality without which a thing would not be what it is” (p. 100). In this study a phenomenological research paradigm was used. Each step in the data reduction process built directly toward revelation of essence through synthesis.

The central question guiding this research was: What is the essence of self-criticism as it is experienced by ...


Working With People To Make Art: Oral History, Artistic Practice, And Art Education, Dipti Desai Jan 2001

Working With People To Make Art: Oral History, Artistic Practice, And Art Education, Dipti Desai

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In recent years, some contemporary artists have used oral history methods as an integral part of their artistic practice. Oral history emerged in the United States as a distinct historical method with the establishment of the first organized oral history project in 1948 by Alan Nevin at Columbia University in New York. It gradually wrenched itself from its elitist origins of documenting stories of prominent white men to becoming a populist approach that draws attention to ordinary people’s lives, perceptions, and experiences of an event. Based on interviews conducted over a short period of time, oral histories’ primary contribution ...


The Blackwell Summer Arts Program: An Experience In Community Revitalization, Marjorie Cohee Manifold Jan 2001

The Blackwell Summer Arts Program: An Experience In Community Revitalization, Marjorie Cohee Manifold

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Like many American cities, Richmond, Virginia is pockmarked by once middle-class neighborhoods that have fallen into decline and are now blighted by decayed and abandoned buildings. Among the more severely depressed areas of Richmond is the historic Blackwell district. Decades ago, in an effort to provide homes for the poorest of Richmond’s citizens, row after row of nondescript, multi-family, brick-faced, public housing units or “projects” were erected in Blackwell. By the end of the 20th century, their boarded windows, crumbling infrastructures, and graffiti covered facades were sad but eloquent monuments to inefficacious governmental policies and the unrelenting poverty and ...

R2d2 Goes To Work: The Design And Development Of A First-Year Art Foundations Course , Kristen Mary Wright-Evans Jan 2001

R2d2 Goes To Work: The Design And Development Of A First-Year Art Foundations Course , Kristen Mary Wright-Evans

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation tells the story of the design and development of an experimental first-year art foundations course at Iowa State University. This instructional design (ID) project used an instructional design model that is based on a constructivist theory of learning and an interpretivist philosophy of science. The R2D2 ID model uses three principles---recursion, reflection, and participation---to guide the design and development process rather than a set of prescriptive steps that are typically found in traditional ID models.;The classroom environment was structured around the constructivist teaching strategies of cognitive apprenticeship and problem-based learning. Each of the studio problems were written ...

Beyond Skills To Meaning: Artists As Healers And Implications For Art Educators, Lucinda Lee Blackstone Jan 2001

Beyond Skills To Meaning: Artists As Healers And Implications For Art Educators, Lucinda Lee Blackstone

Theses Digitization Project

Art definitions and movements are changing just as the social paradigms they spring from. This exploration looked at paradigms in art of the past that have become the foundation for movements today. Currently the transformative powers art has to offer have been recognized. Colleges are beginning to train a major and a career. The literature review explored what role transformative art has played in artists' lives and looked at its uses in education. Conceptual art goes beyond the aesthetics of art and touches the mind and heart. I began to explore this kind of art in the nearby galleries. I ...


The Artist Scholars: E Pluribus Unum: An Integration Of The Arts Into Middle School Curricula, Shawn Kevin Smith Jan 2001

The Artist Scholars: E Pluribus Unum: An Integration Of The Arts Into Middle School Curricula, Shawn Kevin Smith

Theses Digitization Project

The artist scholars: E pluribus unum is an exploratory curriculum designed to be implemented into middle schools. Adolescents experience a period of chaotic and emotional changes that can be both confusing and challanging. This cummiculum seeks to give adolescents a means of expressing themselves. By introducing students to performing arts, the literary arts, and the visual arts, adolescents will begin to answer the basic questions of being human: who are we? Where do we come from? How is knowledge constructed, used, and valued? Each unit consists of lesson plans intended to introduce students to the basic elements of the arts.


Teaching Practices Which Enhance Rhythm Development In Junior Primary Students : Case Studies In The South West Region Of Western Australia, Natalie Oddy Jan 2001

Teaching Practices Which Enhance Rhythm Development In Junior Primary Students : Case Studies In The South West Region Of Western Australia, Natalie Oddy

Theses : Honours

This thesis has arisen from a desire to enhance the benefits of musical development, in particular, rhythm, for children in junior primary classrooms. Music plays an important role in the overall development of the child as it ''aids a child's development in other areas such as overall academic achievement, ability to concentrate, creative and artistic expression, social skills and emotional stability" (Parkinson, 1989, p. 3). Therefore music education plays an important part in the academic curriculum. The researcher selected rhythm as the element of music to focus on as it is "the most basic element of music" (Latham and ...


Multicultural Art Education: Deconstructing Images Of Social Reproduction, Donna Alden Jan 2001

Multicultural Art Education: Deconstructing Images Of Social Reproduction, Donna Alden

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Exclusionary practices along with inaccurate and incomplete information have historically been used in the classroom by the dominant White culture as a means to disempower minority youth and widen the chasm between opposite ends of the power structure. Although reproducing the existing power structure may not be a conscious motive of art teachers in the 21st century, many of their actions replicate conditions necessary for domination by the Euro-White culture. Admirably, art educators have a history of being on the cutting edge of innovative ideas and inclusionary practices. The movement to include art from many cultures in art curriculums is ...


Art, Action Research, And Activism At Artpark, Carole Woodlock, Mary Wyrick Jan 2001

Art, Action Research, And Activism At Artpark, Carole Woodlock, Mary Wyrick

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The authors have an ongoing interest in combining local history, culture, and environmental issues as topics for teaching. As newcomers to western New York, we became fascinated with the story of Artpark in Lewiston, New York. High on the edge of the Niagara Gorge, the site of Artpark has a complicated history that has been enlivened by Native Americans, the French, the British, contemporary artists, senators, toxic waste specialists, visiting art teachers, and local students. The passage and effects of time on nature, art, and culture have been an important influence on art production since the beginning of Artpark in ...


Creating Non-Representational Art By Students Who Are Severely Intellectually Disabled Through A Pictorial And Musical Program, Jane Riddoch Jan 2001

Creating Non-Representational Art By Students Who Are Severely Intellectually Disabled Through A Pictorial And Musical Program, Jane Riddoch

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

The main purpose of this research study was to investigate the worth of a recently developed Pictorial and Musical art program for severely intellectually disabled students, and to compare the non-representational art work produced by lower primary students in a special education school to similar art work being produced by lower primary students in a regular school, when taught in the same program. A subsidiary purpose of the study was to investigate teacher reactions in the art classroom of each participating school, and to observe the extent of the Pictorial and Musical program interventions on the students' attitudes and production ...

Revisiting Social Theory In Art Education: Where Have We Been? Where Are We Today? Where Are We Going? Where Could We Go?, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 2001

Revisiting Social Theory In Art Education: Where Have We Been? Where Are We Today? Where Are We Going? Where Could We Go?, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The title's spin-off from Gauguin's self-reflective statement: D'où vernons-nouse? Que sommes-raus? Où allons-nous? painted towards the closing of the 19th century when colonialist expansion and Imperialism were at their heights, seems to be an appropriate allusion as this year's 21st Social Caucus journal inaugurates the beginning of a new millennium. The irony of the title should be apparent, as should the fortuitousness of the volume's number. The epic proportions of the questions (and the painting) compressed into the bit size of an editorial seems laughable. Yet the questions are worth deliberating in the context of ...

On Oysters And Other Life Lessons: Art Teacher’S Perceptions Of Social Class And Schooling, Kimberly Cosier Jan 2001

On Oysters And Other Life Lessons: Art Teacher’S Perceptions Of Social Class And Schooling, Kimberly Cosier

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

I had to be taught that the world was not my oyster. As a child I was quite sure that I was destined for a wondrous life of adventure and distinction. I was the first born in my family, the first child, the first grandchild, the first niece; everyone was crazy about me. My mother swears that on the day I was born my father floated across the room, so filled with joy and pride that his feet literally glided above the floor as he held me in his arms for the first time. I realize now that this is ...


Naughty Pictures: Their Significance To Initial Sexual Identity Formation, Paul Duncum, Deborah L. Smith-Shank Jan 2001

Naughty Pictures: Their Significance To Initial Sexual Identity Formation, Paul Duncum, Deborah L. Smith-Shank

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This study is about the formation of sexual identity through popular imagery in everyday contexts. Do images with sexual content help inform the development of sexual identity and, if so, in what ways? What is the nature of these images? What values, beliefs, and web of life experiences are revealed through early encounter with such images?


Swimming Up-Stream In The Jean Pool: Developing A Pedagogy Towards Critical Citizenship In Visual Culture, Kevin Tavin Jan 2001

Swimming Up-Stream In The Jean Pool: Developing A Pedagogy Towards Critical Citizenship In Visual Culture, Kevin Tavin

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

American children and youth live in and through mass media and popular culture. They frequently fashion their sense of history, ideology, and multiple and ever-changing identities through popular visual imagery. These images penetrate and pervade every aspect of our students’ lives in the form of television programs, children’s books, advertisements, movies, comics, toys, cereal boxes, video games, fashion merchandise, sport shoes, fast food paraphernalia, and architectural and public spaces. These images help to shape students’ experiences by capturing their imagination and engaging their desires. These pervasive, immediate, and sometimes ephemeral images often construct students’ consciousness and their sense of ...


Another Acid Test (Postcards With An Edge), Michael J. Emme Jan 2001

Another Acid Test (Postcards With An Edge), Michael J. Emme

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

That Merry Prankster of postmodernism, Jacques Derrida, introduced the mind altering drug of significant play into theoretical culture's discourse around meaning and text. Like his prankster predecessors, Derrida's mindful but seemingly anarchistic intervention resulted in insight (into the complexity of text in culture) for some, and chaos (in the guise of abject deconstructive relativism) for others. What follows is a compilation of texts that is both mundane and complex.
