The purpose of this qualitative study is to explore interior design students’ understanding of their design thinking, and to investigate how they view digital technology’s role in these activities. The research questions are: 1. How do interior design students conceptualize interior design as a discipline? 2. How do these students conceptualize their design process? 3. What value do students place on the “process book”1 as a representation of their design breadth and depth in a given project? 4. How do students view computer technology’s role in their design thinking and their design products? Participants viewed interior design ...


Differentiating Art Curriculum For Students With Learning And Emotional Disabilities, Susan Ackerman Aug 2007

Differentiating Art Curriculum For Students With Learning And Emotional Disabilities, Susan Ackerman

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

Participation in the visual arts should be a pleasurable, vital learning experience for students with special needs. Art teachers without formal training are challenged by differentiating curricula for these special education students due to current teacher certification requirements. Art teachers of special education students strive to provide the most creative atmosphere possible while struggling to balance the demands of behavior management these children require. To understand this dilemma, this paper begins with an exploration of disability's integration into our education system and the impact of federal legislation on society's desire to teach everyone equally. It presents theories of ...


A Personalized Art Curriculum That Promotes Art Advocacy, Nicole Marie Walters Jun 2007

A Personalized Art Curriculum That Promotes Art Advocacy, Nicole Marie Walters

All Graduate Projects

The following project shows the development of a personalized drawing curriculum that will encourage students to become art advocates. The curriculum is based upon art history and is designed for students to relate historical ideas to their own lives. This personalization will help students learn more about art as a form of communication. Through this art experience, students will see the value of art in their own education and it is hoped that in the future, when these students are adults they will be advocates for the arts.

Infusing Creativity And Design Into A University Faculty Mentor Process: Means And Ends, Lori A. Brunner, Katherine Richardson Bruna Apr 2007

Infusing Creativity And Design Into A University Faculty Mentor Process: Means And Ends, Lori A. Brunner, Katherine Richardson Bruna

Art and Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

“So you have a design degree, why are you interested in the area of curriculum and instructional technology?” For me I see so many connections and important contributions to both design and education, in addition to the valuable lessons learned by taking an interdisciplinary approach to projects. This case study provides one example of how design and education, together, can produce exciting processes and results that help inform both design and education scholars.

Student Perspectives On Design, Learning, And Interior Design Education, Lori A. Brunner Mar 2007

Student Perspectives On Design, Learning, And Interior Design Education, Lori A. Brunner

Art and Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

The purpose of this study is to investigate how students conceptualize their learning and design experiences in an undergraduate interior design accredited program. In particular, how do they rate their own abilities in general skills and student preparedness, what interior design skills and knowledge are important to them, as well as what design activities are most significant and least significant in the design process? Many scholars argue that prior knowledge is an essential variable in design learning. However, if students' perceptions of design are incorrect, inconsistent, or incompatible with experts, radical conceptual change is required in order to modify these ...

Maya Paintings As Teachers Of Justice: Art Making The Impossible Possible, Kryssi Staikidis Jan 2007

Maya Paintings As Teachers Of Justice: Art Making The Impossible Possible, Kryssi Staikidis

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This article examines Maya paintings as historical documents, political platforms and conduits for cultural transmission in two local Maya communities. Particular attention is paid to the recent history of genocide of Maya peoples in Guatemala and the production of paintings as visual reminders of cultural loss and regeneration, as well as visual means to protect Maya future generations. Collaborative ethnography and decolonizing methodologies (Lassiter, 1998; Tuhiwai-Smith, 1999) are used in this study; thus, Maya artists speak through written dialogues and interviews in first voice regarding massacres that were kept clandestine for three decades. This paper addresses the potential and capacity ...

Editorial: Language Of Possibilities And Sense Of The 1m/Possible In Art Education, Wanda B. Knight, Bill Wightman Jan 2007

Editorial: Language Of Possibilities And Sense Of The 1m/Possible In Art Education, Wanda B. Knight, Bill Wightman

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Schooling in the United States is "increasingly defined by arthritic traditionalisms of standardized assessments and testing, school and teacher accountabilities, models of exacerbated efficiency and tracking, and even more strident state and federal calls for more of the same" (Kanpol, 1997, p. ix). Mired in escalating restricted conventional practices that deny humanistic and democratic possibilities, many art educators are frequently unaware of what, in reality, is possible with/in art/ education. Moreover, our praxis continues to reflect dispositions and actions that are oftentimes bereft of the language of possibility or hope. Using the language of possibility, we transform our thinking ...


Plazabilities For Art Education: Community As Participant, Collaborator & Curator, Kathleen Keys Jan 2007

Plazabilities For Art Education: Community As Participant, Collaborator & Curator, Kathleen Keys

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

In the following article, a plaza metaphor and theories of plazability are applied to the recent work of three "Other" art educators to acknowledge, examine and articulate a refreshed vision for an art education based in community pedagogy which expands possibilities, builds community, and uses art to work for social change. Examples suggesting such achievements in creating plazability include work from a community artist backed by a visionary community arts foundation, a progressive cultural museum director and staff, and a contemporary artist each actively engaging the community in diverse ways. The innovative and community grounded practice and philosophies of these ...


Contamination Of Childhood Fairy Tale: Pre-Service Teachers Explore Gender And Race Constructions, Wan-Hsiang Chou Jan 2007

Contamination Of Childhood Fairy Tale: Pre-Service Teachers Explore Gender And Race Constructions, Wan-Hsiang Chou

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This study explores the possibilities of challenging European-American middle-class social codes perpetuated by fairy tales through creative writing and artmaking. For centuries, writers and artists have continued to create new versions of old tales. Critiquing through recreation of fairy tales can reveal biases of personal and cultural constructions of race and gender. Like authors and illustrators of children's books, 25 pre-service teachers were invited to "contaminate" fairy tales from their childhood, through which to become aware of metaphors they live by and explore where and how pre-existing codes entered their lives. Their retellings of traditional tales and accompanying illustrations ...


Pre-Service Possibilities: Reconsidering ''Art For The Elementary Educator", Melanie L. Buffington, Jodi Kushins Jan 2007

Pre-Service Possibilities: Reconsidering ''Art For The Elementary Educator", Melanie L. Buffington, Jodi Kushins

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

"Art for the Elementary Educator" courses are sites of possibility in the field of art education, particularly art education oriented toward curriculum integration and meaningful art experiences. Drawing on literature about "Art for the Elementary Educator" courses and our own teaching experiences we make recommendations for reconsidering possible futures for this course as related to the future of art education. We believe that this course, its students, instructors, and course materials are worthy of sustained attention by the art education community. Ultimately, we argue that art education appreciation and advocacy, concepts we define in our concluding remarks, should be primary ...


Art Education In An Age Of Teletechnology: On The Impossibility Of Portraiture, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 2007

Art Education In An Age Of Teletechnology: On The Impossibility Of Portraiture, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Art since the Renaissance has been obsessed with the portrait and defined by it as the form of representation made even more iconic through the invention of photography where the notion of the profile became established as a sign of prosperity, prestige and power (Sekula, 1986). This enlightenment tradition of portraiture is not likely to perish at any given future date; the digitalization of the image continues to make the banal snap-shot proliferate at such an incredible rate identifying the thirst for personal representation in contemporary society. The explosion of celebrity magazines, the spread of the paparazzi, and the easy ...


Opening The Door To Possibilities: Research Journals In Pre-Service Art Education, Debrah Sickler-Voight Jan 2007

Opening The Door To Possibilities: Research Journals In Pre-Service Art Education, Debrah Sickler-Voight

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Preparing to be an art educator is a time when future teachers anticipate the endless possibilities the profession has to offer. Unfortunately, many leave teaching within a few years of service because of lack of support and preparation. This qualitative study investigates how preservice art education students enrolled in their first university art education course used the Art for Life method to create research journals. The research question that guided this study is: What themes drive student research journals and how does the exploration of these themes espouse preservice art education? After coding student journals, I discovered three majors themes ...

Differentiated Educational Strategies In The Elementary Art Classroom, Mary Amber Bush Jan 2007

Differentiated Educational Strategies In The Elementary Art Classroom, Mary Amber Bush

Theses and Dissertations

This thesis provides elementary art teachers strategies for teaching lessons in a method called "differentiation". The purpose of differentiation is to tailor lesson plans to try and meet unique needs of the students. Lessons can be differentiated through content, process, or product. A teacher may choose one of these three areas and provide different approaches to the lesson to meet different learning needs of the students. To meet different learning needs in an efficient way, students are grouped for lessons based on their readiness, interests, or their learning styles. This thesis provides greater detail on content, process, product, readiness, interests ...


Art To Bring About Change: The Work Of Tyree Guyton, Melanie L. Buffington Jan 2007

Art To Bring About Change: The Work Of Tyree Guyton, Melanie L. Buffington

Art Education Publications

Public art takes many forms including commemorative sculptures, site-specific works, and collaborative murals. Additionally, public art can beautify an urban environment (Riley, 2005) or raise awareness of social issues in a manner similar to the AIDS quilt (Russell, 2004). Another possibility is that public works of art are a form of discourse and open conversations and dialogue. Such works of art can help communities work toward unity and empowerment (Hall, 1989; The Heidelberg Project, n.d.; Senie, 2006). As noted by Russell (2004) and Argiro (2004), studying public works of art can be an important part of art education. Tyree ...


Contemporary Approaches To Critical Thinking And The World Wide Web, Melanie L. Buffington Jan 2007

Contemporary Approaches To Critical Thinking And The World Wide Web, Melanie L. Buffington

Art Education Publications

This article begins with a review of the history of critical thinking and some current ideas on the topic. Then, I explain my working description of critical thinking and how critical thinking is currently articulated in discussions of the WWW in schools. I conclude with ideas for teachers related to developing critical thinking in art classrooms using the WWW.


Preparations For Instruction In Lettering, Johannes H. Von Gumppenberg Jan 2007

Preparations For Instruction In Lettering, Johannes H. Von Gumppenberg

Johannes von Gumppenberg Books

This lettering manual is named "Preparations for Instruction" because it contains the notes handed out in the classroom by the author in 1971. Although slightly informal, this booklet contains some very useful advice, some beautifully executed sample plates, and a moving tribute to the author's teacher, John Howard Benson, author of the full-length classic, "The Elements of Lettering" (1950).
