The concept has always been a simple one...to showcase the artistic diversity and vision of students who incorporate photography in heir personal artistic expression.

Evaluation Of School-Based Arts Education Programmes In Australian Schools, Jennifer Bryce, Juliette Mendelovits, Adrian Beavis, Joy Mcqueen, Isabelle Adams

Policy Analysis and Program Evaluation

This report presents evaluations of four Australian school-based arts programmes: Arts@Direk (SA), Boys’ Business (NT), Indigenous Music Education Programme (NT), and SCRAYP – Youth Arts with an Edge (Vic). Arts@Direk and SCRAYP provided a focus on drama, while Boys’ Business and Indigenous Music Education Programme (IMEP) concentrated on music. There was a range of ages from Year 4 to Year 10 and a diverse range of backgrounds amongst the participating students. The study investigated the impact of each arts programme on students’ academic progress, engagement with learning and school attendance. It also considered which attributes of arts programmes were ...


The Creative Economy In Maine: Measurement & Analysis, Richard Barringer, Charles S. Colgan, Douglas Denatale, Jennifer Hutchins, Deborah Smith, Gregory Wassall Jan 2004

The Creative Economy In Maine: Measurement & Analysis, Richard Barringer, Charles S. Colgan, Douglas Denatale, Jennifer Hutchins, Deborah Smith, Gregory Wassall

Economics and Finance

The Creative Economy is today a large and important part of Maine’s economy. The data in this study show that both the arts & culture and technology sectors of the Creative Economy are large and growing. Arts & culture industries have exhibited particularly strong employment growth at a time when major parts of our technology industries have seen significant employment declines. Although concentrated in urban areas, arts & culture industries flourish throughout Maine, and it is outside urban counties that this economy particularly blooms during the summer.

“Catching Sight Of The Permanent Possibility Of War:” Images Of Totality And Words Of Peace, Norm Friesen Jan 2004

“Catching Sight Of The Permanent Possibility Of War:” Images Of Totality And Words Of Peace, Norm Friesen

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In Totality and Infinity (1969), a landmark critique of the Western philosophical tradition, Emmanuel Levinas poses the provocative question: "Does not lucidity, the mind's openness on the true, consist in catching sight of the permanent possibility of war" (21)? Levinas asks, in other words, whether knowledge of the truth as truth has been "seen” in the western philosophical tradition? is in some fundamental way related to the war.


Three Silences: Infection … Abjection … Art Education, Bob Sweeney Jan 2004

Three Silences: Infection … Abjection … Art Education, Bob Sweeney

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The students were waiting for the bus that would take them home after Drama Club, Intramurals, detention. Some students were sitting on the steps, as instructed by another teacher and myself who had either been assigned or volunteered for 'bus duty' that afternoon. The majority of the students were in various states of agitation, fueled by hormones that had just recently been switched into overdrive by developing pituitary glands. Buying sodas, 'athletic' drinks, and junk food from the vending machines, chasing each other around the bathrooms that separated the cafeteria from the exits, most of the students seemed like a ...


The Effect Of Cross-Linked Learning On Visual Arts Education, Cassandra Zervos Jan 2004

The Effect Of Cross-Linked Learning On Visual Arts Education, Cassandra Zervos

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

This study examined how computer technology had an effect on a Year 9 visual arts education class with regard to the Western Australian four Arts Learning Outcomes (WA 4ALO). The research was administered concurrently with a learning approach called Cross-Linked Leaming (CLL) (Zervos, 1997), which consisted of three components: (1) the subject (e.g., visual arts education in relation to the WA 4ALO); (2) the learner (i.e., a target group and how they learn); and (3) the tool (e.g., computer technology). This study addressed the problem of how to promote learning in visual arts education, especially with visual ...


Cultural Hybridity And Visual Practice: Towards A Transformative-Repair Multicultural Pedagogy For Visual Arts Education, Kim Le Jan 2004

Cultural Hybridity And Visual Practice: Towards A Transformative-Repair Multicultural Pedagogy For Visual Arts Education, Kim Le

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

This research project examines how transitional multiculturalism, cultural hybridity and transformative-repair are practiced by a professional artist-researcher and novice artists. Transitional multiculturalism and cultural hybridity are examined through a series of artworks by a Vietnamese-born artist-researcher. This series of artwork, which reflects 35 years of creating art in both Vietnamese and Australia, demonstrate a personal engagement with issues of cultural diversity, upbringing, and related aesthetic studies. The intention of this exhibition is to chart the characteristics of the artist's expression, which is culturally hybridised. This part of the study aims to identify those artistic conventions associated with specific visual ...

Editorial: Silence Under Erasure—The Silence Of Silence, Jan Jagodzinski, Bill Wightman Jan 2004

Editorial: Silence Under Erasure—The Silence Of Silence, Jan Jagodzinski, Bill Wightman

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Author Guagtiumi's cover design speaks eloquently to the theme of this year's journal: silence. The fractal spaces of a complex topological landscape with various intensities of lines that compress and depress throughout are cut and interpenetrated by blank spaces whose sinuous curves stake out a depthless territory that we know nothing about. The "spine" of the cover becomes an artificial divide where the two sides butt together, as if some giant fault tine had been intentionally created. Occasionally a translucent film grows over the force and intensity of these tines, both masking and holding them together to neutralize ...


Black Hawk Down And The Silences Of Ridley’S Scott’S Realism, Robert Nellis Jan 2004

Black Hawk Down And The Silences Of Ridley’S Scott’S Realism, Robert Nellis

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

A telling moment occurs in the film Black Hawk Down (Bruckheimer & Scott, 2001) when the "reliable" Shawn Nelson is literally struck deaf by the gunfire of his partner. Nelson can no longer hear his fellow American soldiers, their gunfire, or the screams of his dying enemies. Prior to losing his hearing, Nelson puts in a mouth protector, explaining that on his last mission, he almost bit off his tongue. Thus, Nelson ensures that he will be able to speak of any evil he hears, but, alas, he becomes deal. Nelson's predicament somewhat parallels that of the audience of Ridley ...

Documentary Rhetoric, Fact Or Fiction? University Students React To The Film, Bowling For Columbine, Mary Stokrocki Jan 2004

Documentary Rhetoric, Fact Or Fiction? University Students React To The Film, Bowling For Columbine, Mary Stokrocki

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In American schools, violence has evolved as one of our most riveting social problems. The FBI reported at least 28 cases of school shootings since 1982 (Diket & Mucha, 2002). Educators are concerned about the growing number of violent acts in schools across America and seek reasons and results. They insist that teachers pay attention to the pictures students create, discuss violence and related issues with them, and make time to talk about understanding a volatile world (Susi, 2001; Diket & Mucha, 2002). Freedman (1997) earlier advocated that teachers encourage students to examine the media. Ballengee-Morris and Stuhr (2001) advocate that teachers examine visual culture, notably the theme of violence, and its socio-cultural context. jagodginski (1997) points out baby-boomer nostalgia and baby-buster counter-nostalgia as the real problem. Parents avoid the issues of violence and obscene influences. They want to return to their safe childhood. Schools do the same, consider the theme too controversial ...


The Embodied Pedagogy Of War, Charles Garoian, Yvonne Gaudelius Jan 2004

The Embodied Pedagogy Of War, Charles Garoian, Yvonne Gaudelius

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In March of 2003 we sat huddled over the computer trying to make sense of the paper that we were trying to write on the obsolete body of art education for presentation at the National Art Education Association (NAEA) conference in Minneapolis. When we began the paper the war on Iraq had not yet begun but it was daily becoming more of a real possibility. The buzz about the impending war became a louder and louder as we lived and worked, not in an mythical ivory tower isolated from the world but in the midst of 24-7 media coverage of ...


Schooled In Silence, Patricia M. Amburgy, Wanda B. Knight, Karen Keifer-Boyd Jan 2004

Schooled In Silence, Patricia M. Amburgy, Wanda B. Knight, Karen Keifer-Boyd

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

What is not said, is often more powerful than what is spoken about diversity, difference, and identity in U.S. classrooms. Examples are everywhere: Although no students of color may be enrolled in a course at a prominent research university, members of the class do not believe there is such a thing as institutional racism. A handful of women are discussed in course textbooks, all authored by men, but no one thinks it odd that only men have written accounts of women's achievements that appear on the syllabus. Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people do not speak for themselves ...


African Art: What And To Whom? Anxieties, Certainties, Mythologies, David Gall Jan 2004

African Art: What And To Whom? Anxieties, Certainties, Mythologies, David Gall

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

It has taken nearly a whole century to publish two books on African art that recognize the continent as a complex cultural unit within which there is diversity, A History of Art in Africa (Blackmun Visona, M et al, 2001) and Africa, The Art of a Continent (Phillips, T. 1995). Why it taken so long far North and East Africa past and present to be included in texts labeled African art? Why were they not recognized as African? India, also a place of diversity of race and ethnicity, has not similarly treated. The assumptions underlying the norms a representation of ...


Piercing Gaze: Public Art In Schools, Laura Felleman Fattal Jan 2004

Piercing Gaze: Public Art In Schools, Laura Felleman Fattal

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

A gaze is a silent facial gesture while a piercing gaze suggests a shrieking sound. Unpacking the word, silence, allows one to look at the difference between the verbalizations hailing empowerment and the actual functioning of reinstatements of purpose in learning, teaching and mentoring in a public school. Silence, in the following article, signals a discomfort, sometimes solitude and, at times, an abyss perhaps indicating the disparity between expectation and implementation. The depth of research necessary by the school community to reach consensus for names of dignitaries and the in-depth archival photographic research on the part of the professional artists ...


Playing It Safe In The Artroom, Donalyn Heise Jan 2004

Playing It Safe In The Artroom, Donalyn Heise

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

As a university supervisor, I have the opportunity to observe preservice teachers as they fulfill their student teaching practicum. Part of my task is to assess their performance, including their competence in content; instructional strategies, classroom management and organization. Some of my student teachers deliver art programs that emphasize media, processes, elements and principles. Many also focus on historical and critical inquiry. Some student teachers have already developed effective classroom management and organizational strategies. But is this evidence of quality art education that will prepare students for life's challenges? Are we denying students the opportunity to experience the transformative ...


Anding—The Dynamic In Education, Katie Roberts Jan 2004

Anding—The Dynamic In Education, Katie Roberts

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The world exists in a dynamic that can be described as a web. The moment that you are born, you become part of this web by your every move through space, every encounter with people, and every interaction with objects. Never ending but changing direction, never moving up or down but always laterally, the web progresses and grows continuously. This metaphor also describes the singular existence of all of us by outlining the experiences that help form us. From the common details to the formative moments in life, our lives are a series of cumulative experiences. These experiences connect and ...
