Pre-Service Teachers And Middle School Students: A Collaboration For Social Justice Art Education, R. Darden Bradshaw Oct 2019

Pre-Service Teachers And Middle School Students: A Collaboration For Social Justice Art Education, R. Darden Bradshaw

Conference: The Social Practice of Human Rights

Our lives are mediated through the visual which informs, in multiple and conflicting ways, our views, our beliefs, attitudes and mores, our choices, and thereby our resulting actions. This barrage of the visual impacts the postmodern student encountered in K-12 education. Students readily gain access to information that was once the sole domain of adults yet the prevailing system of education has not adapted. Visual culture is seldom used as an engagement strategy in school despite its ubiquitous role as hidden curriculum and ever-present place in the world beyond the school.

Social justice education underscores humanizing pedagogy as it examines ...

Avra_K_Thesis.Pdf, Katherine Avra

Katherine Avra

Teacher planning is a necessary process by which educators establish, facilitate, monitor, and evaluate lessons and learning within their classroom.  For art educators, sketchbooks have been a foundational pillar in art curricula. The sketchbook has a lengthy legacy of yielding common, structured assignments. However, recent considerations have reframed sketchbook practices.  Contemporary analysis has produced a pedagogical shift in approaches to sketchbooks and planning for sketchbook inclusion in the classroom. The sketch-plan book offers art teachers a streamlined resource to collect and maintain lesson ideas and inclusions, track on-going lessons, and plan for future teaching and learning. The purpose of this ...

Defining Contagion : Examining Imagination As A Source Of The Infection In Print Studios, Joshua Tangen Jun 2018

Defining Contagion : Examining Imagination As A Source Of The Infection In Print Studios, Joshua Tangen

Masters Theses

In this thesis, I attempted to define a contagious component of art education within a community print shop. In this quest, I examine theories around imagination, creativity, and psychology through an analysis of the work of Maxine Greene, Kieran Egan, Ken Robinson, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Gathered from a variety of sources that include, books, scholarly articles, and online video, I link Greene’s concepts of what role imagination plays in critical thinking and empathy, Egan’s promotion of imagination’s ability to create personal and emotional engagement, Robinson’s ideas about creativity in learning, and Csikszentmihayli’s theory of flow ...


The Art Of Reflection, Amy L. Ruopp, Mae Debruyn Oct 2017

The Art Of Reflection, Amy L. Ruopp, Mae Debruyn

Artizein: Arts and Teaching Journal

This writing shares a course designed to reconnect middle school students to the natural world. In reconnecting to nature while IN nature students are afforded the opportunity for deep reflection, and the space to wonder and realize the inter-connectivity between things. We highlight transformational thinking and feeling awareness as students’ connection with nature is expressed though art and writing while deeply immersed in the natural environment.

Re-Thinking Apprenticeship In Art Education, Kelly Nicole Denisson Oct 2017

Re-Thinking Apprenticeship In Art Education, Kelly Nicole Denisson

Teacher Education, Educational Leadership & Policy ETDs

Many students face isolation and meaningless experiences in their day-to-day routine in schools. The increasing focus on standardized tests and academic performance reinforces competition and extrinsic rewards for learning. This diminishes opportunities for creative thought, development of communities, and genuine meaningful connection to content, leaving students feeling disconnected to learning and their peers. Art education has long been an outlet in which to collaborate, embrace diversity, and transform throughout the learning process. This study uses the Arita Tradition of Porcelain, its instructional practices, community of practice, and studio classroom environment as a model for apprenticeship in art education. Participant experiences ...


Investigating Spirituality Through Elementary Art Lessons: A Case Study, Kimberly Ann Mchenry Jun 2017

Investigating Spirituality Through Elementary Art Lessons: A Case Study, Kimberly Ann Mchenry

Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this case study was to investigate the inclusion of spirituality in a five-week art unit. Spirituality was defined as the interconnectedness with nature and all living things, with human beings and with a higher power. This study was conducted within two Central Illinois public schools, working specifically with third and fourth grade students. Eleven students participated in the study by completing the unit, sharing their sketches/artwork, and participating in an audio-recorded interview conducted by the teacher/researcher. Daily teacher observations/reflections were also used as data.

The spirituality unit consisted of students exploring the subject of ...


The Art Of Art Education, Kaylee Huber Jan 2017

The Art Of Art Education, Kaylee Huber

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

Teaching is a career that can constantly be crafted through research and further education in order to ensure one’s students are reaching their full potential. Through this project I hoped to learn more about advocating for my students, discover what peer-reviewed research had already been conducted to promote the importance of art education and the transfer of skills into adulthood, and how to relay this externally to parents and community members. Technically, this project introduced new design skills necessary to expand my motion graphics animation ability using Adobe After Effects. My process began through the research of peer-reviewed articles ...


Encouraging Student Creativity In Art Education, Naomi I. Ellsworth Dec 2016

Encouraging Student Creativity In Art Education, Naomi I. Ellsworth

Honors College

In this thesis, I explore the concepts and means through which art education can better understand and encourage creativity as a central aspect of their approach to teaching. More specifically, I seek to respond to the question: How might art educators support and facilitate the development of creativity within their students. To answer this question, two forms of research were utilized. The first portion includes a literature review, conducted to find major concepts associated with creativity and art education. From this research, themes such as processes, interdisciplinary connections, assessment, student declines in creativity, giftedness, if creativity can be taught, threats ...


Education Of Artistically Talented Students From Selected Socio-Economic And Culturally Diverse Backgrounds, Audrey M. Reeves Oct 2016

Education Of Artistically Talented Students From Selected Socio-Economic And Culturally Diverse Backgrounds, Audrey M. Reeves

Marilyn Zurmuehlen Working Papers in Art Education

The purpose of this study was to assess accommodations for gifted art students of culturally diverse backgrounds, to see how socio-economic class and culture influence identification and opportunities for gifted art students, and to identify similarities and differences among gifted art students. I conducted and analyzed interviews with five art teachers and five artistically talented students around Phoenix. Teacher interviews indicated all art teachers had experience teaching diverse students. Teachers define artistic talent a natural ability, and look at the student’s product. Teachers recommend students to community art classes. Teachers vary in support, some having more than enough resources ...

The Ceiling Is The Sky: Affective Constructs, Event, And Community In The Marginal Spaces Of Art Education, Kristopher J. Holland, Nandita Baxi Sheth Jun 2016

The Ceiling Is The Sky: Affective Constructs, Event, And Community In The Marginal Spaces Of Art Education, Kristopher J. Holland, Nandita Baxi Sheth

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This article sketches philosophical concepts of affect and event within the canvas of lived experience in a university art education teacher preparation course. We claim that by embracing architectural and metaphorically marginal spaces the course manifested transformative experiences for students, instructors, and community. We position and celebrate the often marginalized spaces of art education as potential sites of becoming through curricular rich environments and as thresholds of event for the educator of art within the community at large. Specifically, we describe the deconstructed space of the “classroom,” the curricular arc of learning, and the occurrence of an unplanned, emergent, student ...


Art Education As Potential Space: A Conversation About Navigating Divides In The Process Of Becoming An Art Teacher, Karyn Sandlos, Miriam Dolnick Jun 2016

Art Education As Potential Space: A Conversation About Navigating Divides In The Process Of Becoming An Art Teacher, Karyn Sandlos, Miriam Dolnick

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The authors reflect on some challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned in the process of planning and implementing an artistic investigation of physical space in a public high school in Chicago. This article is the result of conversations between a student teacher and a preservice teacher educator working in collaboration. Our definition of ‘divides’ includes both the sense in which divides function as obstacles, barriers, and/or forms of constraint, and also productively as opportunities to navigate and work through tensions between opposites. Working with the psychoanalytic concept of potential space, we suggest how students, art teachers, and teacher educators might ...


Effects Of Integrating Postmodern Theory And Visual Culture Into The Art Curriculum, Kara Lomasney Jun 2016

Effects Of Integrating Postmodern Theory And Visual Culture Into The Art Curriculum, Kara Lomasney

Theses and Dissertations

This research study used a pretest and posttest, classroom discussion, student artwork and artist statements, and interview responses to determine whether integrating postmodern theory and visual culture into the art curriculum encouraged students to think critically. Study participants included eight students at a public junior high school in southwest suburb of Chicago, IL. Overall, students' posttest responses were slightly more thorough and better written. In general, participants agreed that learning about contemporary artists inspired them and helped give them ideas. In an effort to help students think more critically, the study recommends that the art classroom incorporate postmodern theory and ...


Art For The People: Wpa Prints And Textiles From The Permanent Collection, Antje K. Gamble, T. Michael Martin Apr 2016

Art For The People: Wpa Prints And Textiles From The Permanent Collection, Antje K. Gamble, T. Michael Martin

Faculty & Staff Research and Creative Activity

As the first major, nationalized support system for artistic production in the United States, the New Deal’s Federal Art Project (F.A.P.) strove to create a holistic vision of art for the American people. Debates among art historians and political pundits alike pointed to the perceived-lack of a truly-American modern art. Cultural critic Lewis Mumford articulated that, opposed to European Modernism, “[w]hat American taste recognizes [is] that there is more aesthetic promise in a McAn shoe store front, or in a Blue Kitchen sandwich palace than there is in the most sumptuous showroom of antiques…” In accordance ...


Bullying Prevention And Intervention In Education Through The Visual Arts: An Instrumental Case Study, Eugene Neglia Apr 2016

Bullying Prevention And Intervention In Education Through The Visual Arts: An Instrumental Case Study, Eugene Neglia

Theses and Dissertations

According to the American Educational Research Association (AERA) (2013) bullying is one of the greatest health risks to children and young adults in the United States. It is harmful in its impact to the victim, the bystander, and the bully and is often less visible and less identifiable than other public health concerns. The effects on victims, offenders, and bystanders can be long lasting and can affect an individual’s development (AERA, 2013).

The impact of bullying on education is profound. As a result of bullying, a child’s academic achievement can be greatly affected (Petrosino, Guckenburg, & DeVoe, 2010). As ...

Regardless, Sarah Casmass

Honorable Mention

Sarah Casmass recounts her study abroad experience in Jamaica over Christmas Break 2015. She traveled with twenty colleagues though Liberty's School of Education. While there, she taught Art Education. Casmass wrote: “The Lord taught my teammates as well as myself the countless reasons why we do what we do,” and strongly encouraged readers to use that word regardless, for: "Honors student—whoever you or wherever you are, in whatever you do, regardless of your situation or how equipped you feel—trust the Lord of your calling over your current condition."

Theses and Dissertations--Art & Visual Studies

This study examined the budgets for art education programs in elementary schools within Fayette County Public Schools (FCPS), how they were funded, and potential solutions for attaining needed funds for art programs. FCPS elementary principals and art teachers were selected for this study and given a survey determining how art programs were funded and the amount of funding at each school. The results of the survey suggest that art programs in FCPS at the elementary level are not adequately and consistently funded, art teachers are spending substantial personal funds to purchase art materials for the public school art programs, Parent ...

High School Visual Art Students' Perceptions Of Creativity, Jacqueline B. Henson-Dacey Jan 2015

High School Visual Art Students' Perceptions Of Creativity, Jacqueline B. Henson-Dacey

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

When high school art teachers do not understand how their students experience creativity, studio art programs are less effective in fostering student learning than they would otherwise be. Nevertheless, extant research does not reveal a consistent or comprehensive understanding of how adolescents experience creativity in art education. Drawing on Csikszentmihalyi's theory of creativity and flow, this study explored students' perceptions of creativity and its relationship to flow, or the state of consciousness associated with optimal pleasure. This phenomenological study investigated students' perceptions of creativity and flow by interviewing nine high school advanced placement students in a public high school ...
