Emerging Views On Making: Fibre Graduates Reflect On Their Practice, Kathleen Morris Nov 2013

Emerging Views On Making: Fibre Graduates Reflect On Their Practice, Kathleen Morris

Kathleen Morris

This narrative research examines the ways in which craft is conceptualized from the perspective of five recent graduates from the Material Art and Design Fibre Program at a prominent Canadian art and design university. Recognizing the cultural currents that have excised acts of making, including Western de-industrialization and abundant access to offshore labour markets, this research looks at the role of maker within a new societal context. A nascent theoretical platform for craft, shaped by artists and academics, counters a dearth of voices that has characterized the field’s history. Here, craft is posited as a methodology, characterized by embodiment ...


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 Sep 2013

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 Mar 2013

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 ...

A New Methodological Application Of The Laban Theory Of Movement Analysis In Greek Traditional Dance Education., Aspasia Dania, Vasiliki Tyrovola, Maria Koutsouba Jan 2013

A New Methodological Application Of The Laban Theory Of Movement Analysis In Greek Traditional Dance Education., Aspasia Dania, Vasiliki Tyrovola, Maria Koutsouba

Aspasia Dania

The aim of the present research is the presentation of a new method for teaching Greek traditional dance: the Laban-Notation teaching method. The proposed method combines the demonstration of the dance by the teacher with the rhythmic, motor and symbolic exploration of the four basic movement concepts: knowledge of body, spatial awareness, sense of effort, relationships, as these are defined by the Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) theory (Laban & Lawrence, 1974). The main innovation of the new method is the use of the Labanotation symbols for the representation of the four movement concepts and their inclusion in verbal-motor, visual-motor and digital-motor ...

Anthropological Evidence Of The 15 Intended Itaukei Tapa Cloth (Masi) Motifs Pre-Dating The Creation Of The Air Pacific/Fiji Airways Logo, Cresantia Frances Koya Vaka'uta

Cresantia Frances Koya Vaka'uta

This short paper examines the history of Tapa in order to show that the fifteen kesakesa designs identified as trade mark worthy by Air Pacific/Fiji Airways are a significant part of the cultural heritage of the iTaukei peoples of Fiji. It will also show that Tapa and the designs/motifs found within tapa are often shared cultural designs across the Pacific. The position taken is that all forms of cultural heritage expressions must remain the intellectual property of their indigenous owners from whom this knowledge, skills and art forms originate. NO COMMERCIAL ENTERPRISE can or should claim the right ...

Art Education: Perspectives From Lonergan, Langer And Maslow, Richard M. Liddy Dec 2012

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 ...
