The arts and cognition : a study of the relationship between Arts Partners programs and the development of higher level thinking proces[s]es in elementary and junior high school students by Carol Fineberg( )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A strong relationship between arts education instructional practices and demonstrations of critical thinking and problem solving was found when the following characteristics were present: artistic expertise, effective instructional strategies, clear thinking skills goals, challenge, choice, structure, time, and enthusiasm. The researcher found that students were able to apply processes and concepts, learned in other classes through textbooks and lectures, to their artmaking. When all the aforementioned elements are in place, it is suggested that students will acquire, internalize, and in some cases transfer to other domains their strategies to think critically and to solve problems

Eight New York state school districts received funding to establish models in arts education and to form an Arts in Education (AIE) network. The purpose of the AIE is to share with the rest of the state its findings and experiences. The model sites share a number of essential characteristics, among them: (1) coordination; (2) art and music specialists; (3) regular involvement with arts and cultural organizations; (4) an arts advocacy role; (5) interdisciplinary study; (6) and the superintendent's personal interest. The partnerships that each model program established with area arts organizations are listed. Each program is described in depth according to goals, strategies, and a summary. Other New York arts education programs (e.g., Arts-Infused Social Studies Curriculum), funding suggestions, and related service organizations are listed. The appendix contains samples of curriculum and staff development activities, an AIE Caravan Course (suggested field activities), and a 9-item AIE bibliography. (PPB)
Thinking through the Arts A Comprehensive Arts in Education Program by Carol Fineberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes a model education program in art education. The goals of the program are to: (1) encourage higher levels of thinking; (2) increase knowledge of arts terminology, style, and concepts; and (3) develop the characteristics of creative thinking, in students from kindergarten through high school. The teaching focus requires the infusion of arts-making and arts-responding activities into the humanities, science, and mathematics curricula. It also requires regular, sequential instruction in art, music, dance, and theater in a manner that supports general education goals. It emphasizes students' use of higher levels of thinking (analysis, synthesis, and evaluation) as they observe artistic events or create art objects. In addition, it stresses the acquisition of those characteristics associated with creative thinking. Fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration are variously stressed depending upon the nature of the assignment. Central to the program is a commitment to at least one period per week of formal instruction in art and vocal music to students in elementary schools by state-certified specialists. For older students the opportunity to study with arts specialists is complemented through involvement in additional arts activities such as rehearsals for performances. Intensive staff development needs to accompany this program. (SM)

Major goals and accomplishments are presented for the arts and career education program of the Children's Art Carnival in Harlem, New York City--a program for low income minority youth (ages 8-18) which utilizes creative and communication arts as a bridge to art careers in industry, entertainment, commercial and human services. Activities, evaluation instruments, and results related to seven program objectives are described and discussed: (1) to expose eight - to fourteen-year-olds to career education experiences via the creative arts (sewing, printmaking, clay, poetry, photography, animation, puppetry, and painting); (2) to enable fourteen- to eighteen-year-olds to develop skills and competence in Communications Arts Productions, thereby increasing career understanding and options; (3) to provide counseling for participants in the Communications Arts production team units; (4) to provide participants with career education experiences fostering the development of responsible work habits and attitudes; (5) to develop communication skills; (6) to provide necessary assistance for participants with neurological, emotional, or other problems; and (7) to promote parent and community support of children's interests in the arts and art-related careers. Dissemination and special activities such as efforts to hire minorities and handicapped in an effort to project a variety of role models are mentioned. The conclusion is made that most objectives were reached and that this program is a model worth emulating.
