Styleless Style? What Photorealism Can Tell Us About “The Sixties”, Craig J. Peariso Sep 2013

Styleless Style? What Photorealism Can Tell Us About “The Sixties”, Craig J. Peariso

Craig J. Peariso

This essay reads 1960s “photorealist” painting and its critical reception against two sets of contemporary social analyses. First, it places these artistic and critical works next to Pierre Bourdieu's 1965 text Photography: A Middle-Brow Art, demonstrating that, although the critical literature surrounding “photorealism” tended to assume that its involvement with photography grew out of a desire for an objective realism, contemporary thought on photography was anything but convinced of the medium's transparency. Second, it looks to cultural critics like Susan Sontag and Jacob Brackman to propose that, rather than seeing the art of this period in opposition to ...

Creative Arts: An Essential Element In The Teacher’S Toolkit When Developing Critical Thinking In Children, Caroline Nilson, Catherine M. Fetherston, Anne Mcmurray, Tony Fetherston

Tony Fetherston

This paper is a position paper, which argues the position that critical thinking is a crucial skill, which needs to be developed in the school curriculum and that the creative arts can do this. The paper explores the states of the Arts in the present curriculum and goes on to argue that knowing how to develop critical thinking is an important pedagogical skill that needs to be developed in our pre-service teachers. This position is supported through data gathered from an innovative project that explored teachers’ and mothers’ perceptions of children’s critical thinking.

Bringing The University Into The Rural Community, The Value And Dangers Of Taking Design Education Out Of The Classroom, B. Canniffe, D. Adams, B. Wiley

Brian M. Wiley

Art and design education prepares students for careers that increasingly don't exist, and further compounds this issue by purveying the myth that these supposed opportunities exist in major cities where jobs are scarce and cost-of-living is overwhelming. While there are many potential reasons for this, the end result is that students, already saddled with an increased debt-load, are progressively destined to fail.

During the summer of 2012, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) in partnership with the Bush Foundation engaged with two rural communities in the Western and Northern areas of Minnesota, USA, to develop meaningful partnerships ...

Art Education: Perspectives From Lonergan, Langer And Maslow, Richard M. Liddy

Richard M Liddy

Educare attraverso l’arte: il pensiero di Lonergan, Langer e Maslow. Bernard Lonergan (1904-1984), il filosofo-teologo canadese, spesso faceva riferimento alle opere di Susanne K. Langer (1895-1985) nei suoi scritti sulla coscienza artistica e sim¬bolica. Le analisi sull’arte di Langer, in particolare il suo lavoro del 1953, Sen¬timento e forma, considerava l’arte come l’oggettivazione di modelli puramente esperienziali che ci permettono di prestare attenzione e di «vedere» ciò che altrimenti potremmo ignorare. L’arte educa l’attenzione in modo che vedia¬mo – o sentiamo o percepiamo – le piùprofonde dimensioni dell’esperienza. Congruenti con queste idee ...
