Editorial: Un(Precedent)Ed, Robert Sweeny

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The 30th Volume of The Journal of Social Theory in Art Education is unprecedented, in many ways. First the theme is unprecedented, or, rather, Un(predecedent)ED. This typographical wordplay, quite common throughout the history of JSTAE, troubles habitual readings of the term, allowing for interpretations that open up possibilities, however brief, for new forms of research, theorizing and artmaking. These are just a few of the interpretations of the volume theme, which each of the authors addresses in a unique manner. Some approach the theme head on, while others choose a more oblique angle of analysis and exploration. Some ...


In Quest Of Walter Smith: The Past, Present, And Future Impact Of Visual Art In Adult Education, Meredith Amanda Cole Dec 2009

In Quest Of Walter Smith: The Past, Present, And Future Impact Of Visual Art In Adult Education, Meredith Amanda Cole

Dissertations

Walter Smith is a relatively unknown historical figure in the art world, but he is essential to defining adult education's past, present, and future in the area of visual art. His artistic endeavors in America sparked facets of the way art education is practiced today. However, along the way we have lost the tenets of social change which he sought but never accomplished. In chapter one, I introduce the purpose of the research. In chapter two, I explain the position Walter Smith entered when coming to America. I also detail Smith's Herculean social reform efforts for adult education ...

Development Of An Art Curriculum That Best Prepares Students For Careers In The Visual Arts By Conducting Interviews With Professional Artists And Designers., David James Willits

Theses and Graduate Projects

The purpose of this study is to examine ways to best prepare students in an art curriculum at a high school level who wish to go on to pursue a career as a professional artist or designer. In this study I have interviewed eleven professional artists and designers. I asked them a series of questions regarding the types of subjects that, based upon their experience, they would recommend be taught at that level. I have also asked them to identify those things that they feel teachers could do to encourage students to consider art or design as a career.

An Art Classroom Curriculum Integrating Art History And Ela, Lisa M. Catalano

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) Student Scholarship

Nora, having finished drinking her milk, tosses her sippy-cup to the side. At first she doesn't see the casual stream of milk that has been strewn across the black wool carpet, but as you can imagine it does not escape her for long. Imagine the look on her face as she discovers that she can control the amount and pattern of the milk on the floor. She begins to tap the tip of the cup on the carpet watching the white spots this creates. As pools of white are formed she takes her fingers and drags them across the ...

Blended-Art At The Kindergarten Level, Jessica E. Sill May 2009

Blended-Art At The Kindergarten Level, Jessica E. Sill

Graduate Master's Theses, Capstones, and Culminating Projects

A foundational research assumption for this project is that the combination of open-ended-art and structured-art will enhance the development of the kindergartener. In today's standards driven classroom environment, art is often overlooked in place of text based curriculum. The idea of this project is to blend two approaches to teaching art and intertwine this approach into the rigorous daily curriculum. The deficits in each approach will be covered by the other, thereby providing opportunity for all students to reap the benefits. The purpose of this endeavor is to determine the positive and negative effects of blended-art, a combination of ...

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other: Art Education And The Symbolic Interaction Of Bodies And Self-Images, James H. Rolling Jr. Jan 2009

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other: Art Education And The Symbolic Interaction Of Bodies And Self-Images, James H. Rolling Jr.

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This article begins with the premise that self-imagery is constituted as a shape-shifting aggregate of symbolic systems that incorporates the human body itself as one of its representations. At intermittent points of the body's embodiment of visual culture and tacit social experience, alternative representations accrete into varying symbolic systems, the multiple shapes a self-image may take over a lifetime. Given that social identity is derived from the interaction of various symbolic systems, how do some bodies and self-images come to be taken as that of identities incompatible with most others? In this exploration of the self-image and identity, the ...

The Space Between: Intersubjective Possibilities Of Transparency And Vulnerability In Art Education, Sara Wilson Mckay Jan 2009

The Space Between: Intersubjective Possibilities Of Transparency And Vulnerability In Art Education, Sara Wilson Mckay

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This paper argues for the pedagogical value of the pursuit of transparency and vulnerability in art education. The author defines transparency and vulnerability in the context of art, offering subsequent pedagogical examples of both. Possibilities are born through intersubjectivity and answerability, the Bakhtinian notion that considers "how shall I say [do] anything when the other can answer?" (Bakhtin, 1990; Nielsen, 2002). The author asserts that art educators should pursue an idea of transparency and encourage an open attitude toward vulnerability in their pedagogy to emphasize intersubjective relationships and social possibilities through art. The author discusses artwork by Kelli Connell and ...

Thinking Of The Frame Otherwise: Putting Art Education Into The Abyss Of The Real, Jan Jagodzinski Jan 2009

Thinking Of The Frame Otherwise: Putting Art Education Into The Abyss Of The Real, Jan Jagodzinski

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This paper argues against designer capitalism's perpetuation of consummatory experience- the 'oral-eye.' An attempt is made to introduce a form of 'psychoanalytic deconstruction,' as a strategy to retain a critical art education. I attempt this by examining two images on the covers of Art Education published in 1998. The argument was formulated in 1998 and presented at NAEA's millennium conference In Los Angeles.


The Pedagopticon: Other Eyes In The 21 St Century Classroom, Robert W. Sweeny Jan 2009

The Pedagopticon: Other Eyes In The 21 St Century Classroom, Robert W. Sweeny

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The Pedagopticon is a revolutionary new technology that allows educators to do away with outdated methods of discipline and punishment. Fusing traditional optical equipment (eye, camera lens) with the latest in high-tech gear (digital camera, web linked connectivity), the 'Pedagopticon' is the future of teaching. It was once said that seasoned teachers had 'eyes in the back of their head.' Well, the scientists at 'technology is the devil' have taken this adage and made it real. Now, you can have eyes everywhere! No corner of your classroom is out of your gaze. The 'Pedagopticon' offers a full 360 degrees of ...


Editorial: Being Other(W)Ise, Wanda B. Knight Jan 2009

Editorial: Being Other(W)Ise, Wanda B. Knight

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

While traveling in England during Spring 2009, I had the opportunity to see the London production of the musical Wicked, a prequel to a cultural icon ingrained in our nation's psyche, the classic version of the The Wizard of Oz. Told from the perspective of the alleged wicked witch, Wicked celebrates the obvious notion; there is anOTHER side to the standard story. Most of us, at some point in our lives, can relate to being looked at as different or outsider, like the green-skinned, black-clad, smart, caring young lady, Elphaba, whom the Wizard's propaganda machine demonized as wicked ...

Sustainable Living In The Pacific: Exploring The Role Of Multiculturalism In Teacher Education, Cresantia Frances Koya Vaka'uta Jan 2009

Sustainable Living In The Pacific: Exploring The Role Of Multiculturalism In Teacher Education, Cresantia Frances Koya Vaka'uta

Cresantia Frances Koya Vaka'uta

The Pacific is arguably one of the most diverse regions in the world, both culturally and linguistically. Although much has been said about the relationship between culture and education, the topic of multiculturalism in education is one that remains unexplored. Although sporadic discussions have occurred with reference to the fourth Pillar of „living together‟ in the Delors‟ report, much of the discourse surrounds the need to incorporate cultural knowledge and culture inclusive pedagogies into local curricula. The author is of the view that quality educational development requires an examination of multiculturalism in teacher education and training. This paper presents the ...


Teaching Critical Thinking To Freshman Writers By Engaging Contemporary Artists’ Work, Angelika Festa Jan 2009

Teaching Critical Thinking To Freshman Writers By Engaging Contemporary Artists’ Work, Angelika Festa

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Engaging fully with contemporary art requires analysis of the relationship between creative imagination, personal experience, and cultural context. This article discusses the study of contemporary works of art as an effective tool for fostering the development of critical thinking skills in a freshman writing class at an art college. In a carefully structured progression of written assignments, students are guided in the step-by-step exploration of the work of three specific artists and their writings. Close attention is paid to students' written responses to assignments to illustrate how close engagement with the work of specific contemporary artists is particularly well-suited to ...

Other(Wise): The Myth Of Wikipedia, Melanie L. Buffington Jan 2009

Other(Wise): The Myth Of Wikipedia, Melanie L. Buffington

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This article explores the theme of Other(wise) as it relates to Web 2.0 and newer forms of creating knowledge. Through a discussion of Web 2.0, wikis, and Wikipedia, I explore newer ways of thinking about a text. Wikis represent modern texts and require different approaches than traditional texts. As a field, we need to become active on Wikipedia to develop our presence in ways that represent the complexities of our field.
