Development of sensitivity to esthetic values by Irvin L Child( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objects of this study were (1) to determine the development of average esthetic sensitivity to visual art through the elementary and secondary school years and (2) to determine if appropriate training procedures would lead children to discriminate between works considered better or poorer by experts. Children from grades 1 to 12 were presented with paired visual reproduction of similar character, but of different esthetic value. The subjects were asked to choose the reproduction that would be considered better by an expert on the bases of (1) selectivity, (2) organization, (3) consistency, (4) variety, (5) aliveness, (6) use of decoration, and (7) appropriate use of elements. Children in the elementary grades showed a significant tendency to disagree with expert opinion, but this disagreement lessened during the secondary school years. Esthetic sensitivity of high school students was shown to be significantly and positively related to (1) independence of judgment and (2) tolerance of complexity. The technique of showing paired reproductions gave no evidence of any consistent effect in (1) esthetic judgment or (2) the tendency to agree or disagree with expert opinion. (Pm)

A study of esthetic judgment by Irvin L Child( Book )

4 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ability of college students to recognize degrees of esthetic merit in objects of art was studied. The objective was to determine by experimentation some of the factors which may be important in the development of esthetic judgment. A sample of male college students was given several tests of esthetic judgment. From these subjects were chosen sets of subjects, equated on judgment of art. Each set was divided at random into various experimental groups. The groups were required to respond with esthetic judgment to a large number of pairs of art objects presented on slides. Esthetic judgment was found to be related to amount of background in art. There was no way of assessing to what extent this reflects an influence of background on esthetic judgment score and to what extent it reflects a tendency for people with better esthetic judgment to be more interested in art and thus obtain more experience with it. The results of this study constitute tentative findings which might well serve as sources of hypotheses in the study of other groups. Of special importance was the general pattern into which a number of findings fell, suggesting that good esthetic judgment is largely an outcome of a general cognitive approach to the world, an approach involving search for complex and novel experience which is then understood and evaluated through relatively autonomous interactions of the individual with objects which provide such experience.

Bases of school children's esthetic judgment and esthetic preference by Irvin L Child( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research into children's art preferences and their relation to the esthetic merit of art as judged by experts was described in this report that is made up of nine articles, originally prepared for publication in scholarly journals, and a summary of the findings. The general topics considered were (1) reasons children give for their preferences, (2) assessment of specific aspects of esthetic value in visual art, (3) determinants of children's art preferences and of their agreement with expert esthetic judgement (sensory qualities, emotional qualities, abundance, simplification), (4) age and sex differences in children's color preferences, and (5) transcultural comparisons of esthetic judgement and art preference. From the findings of the studies, the investigators concluded there was evidence that (1) esthetic appreciation is at least partly based on human universals rather than on arbitrary traditions of the culturally elite, and (2) an esthetic approach appears not to be congenial to many. Perhaps most, people. The authors suggested that art education in general schooling should give opportunity and encouragement for development of esthetic appreciation, but at the same time should offer opportunity for the development of very different approaches to art.
