Beyond creating : the place for art in America's schools : a report by Getty Center for Education in the Arts( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this booklet is to draw attention to the need for a serious visual arts education program, to describe the experiences of seven school districts that are developing such programs, and to discuss the factors and issues involved in revitalizing visual arts instruction. An introductory section summarizes findings from a study in which seven selected school districts were analyzed to identify crucial characteristics of discipline-based art education programs. In the first section, "Art as Language: Its Place in the Schools," Ernest L. Boyer presents a rationale for art education, highlighting the need to include art making, art criticism, art history, and aesthetics in the art curriculum. The second section, "Art is Fundamental," is followed by an essay "The Signals of Art to the Workplace" (William F. Kieschnick), which considers how serious and continuing encounters with art can help individuals become more innovative and "ambiguity-tolerant." The fourth section, "Learning Art: Sketches of Art Education in America's Schools," presents case studies of each of the schools included in the study. The fifth section identifies critical elements in changing art education. The title of the sixth section is "Why Art in Education and Why Art Education" (Elliot W. Eisner). Conclusions are presented in the final chapter, "Moving toward Discipline-Based Art Education," by the Rand Corporation. (Lh)

"How have issues of cultural diversity affected practices in art history, aesthetics, criticism, and art making? What are the implications of multiculturalism for those teaching art at kindergarten through high school levels? In 1992 the Center for Education in the Arts brought together more than 150 participants to explore these questions and other issues facing arts education in America today. This volume presents summaries of those discussions--representing the views of a diverse group of arts educators in schools and museums, historians, critics, and artists." -- Publisher's description
Discipline-based art education : a curriculum sampler by Kay Alexander( Book )

2 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sampler was designed for art specialists and art museum educators with a basic understanding of teaching discipline-based art education content. The introduction offers a brief history of the Sampler and explains its intended purpose and use. Then 8 unit models with differing methodologies for relating art objectives to the four disciplines: aesthetics, art criticism, art history, and art production, are presented. The sampler consists of two elementary units, two units for middle school, two units intended for required high school art, one high school studio ceramic unit, and a brief unit for art teachers and art museum educators that focuses on visits to art museums. Learning activities, resource material, and learning strategies are given for the units along with a sequence of lessons organized on a theme. (1) "Art Touches the People in Our Lives" is a unit for primary level students that introduces children to basic concepts, and to selected elements and principles of art. They study ways artists use principles to express mood and meaning, learn about artists who have chosen emotional themes for their work, and express their own thoughts and feelings as they create artworks. (2) "Spaces and Places" is an elementary unit on architecture that shows how a topic might be articulated from one grade level to another. (3) "Many Ways of Seeing" is written for middle school students and investigates the concept of originality, the interpretation of visual language, symbolism, and the categories of fine art and folk art. (4) "Celebration!," Also a middle school unit, investigates how different cultures use art for common purposes. (5) "The Word as Image: Symbol to Gesture" investigates relationships between words and visual images in paintings and graphic arts, and leads to an understanding of contemporary abstract and non-objective painting. (6) "Art Exploration--A Global Approach" is a general education, high school unit, that gives balanced consideration to content from each of the four art disciplines. The unit presents a study of ceramics, painting, and sculpture, which incorporates art exemplars from many times, places, and cultures. (7) "The Artistic Heritage of Clay: Survival and Revival of Traditions" demonstrates how an elective high school studio course can focus on the art production discipline with enrichment from the other three art disciplines. (8) The final unit, "Experiencing Original Works of Art in a Museum," provides a model for engaging students in response to original works of art. (Mm)

Aesthetic persuasion : pressing the cause of arts education in American schools by Stephen S Kaagan( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is intended to support art education advocates and policymakers as they formulate strategies for broadening the base of school offered visual art experiences through discipline-based art education (dbae). The study is divided into three sections. The first section of the paper concerns assumptions, ideas, and perspectives underlying the analysis in the study. The purpose of the second section is to put arts education, dbae in particular, in context. The second section has three sub-parts: historical background and general commentary; five prominent features of the educational policy landscape; and arts education and dbae vis-a-vis the five features. The third section consists of five advocacy recommendations. Advocates are urged: (1) to bring in to focus, highlight, and take advantage of the potential of dbae arts education to foster students' reasoning and problem solving abilities; (2) to assume a more aggressive posture with regard to arts education serving students of marked need; (3) to advance dbae arts education as supportive of attempts to professionalize teaching; (4) to legitimate the arts by advancing efforts to assess student performance and by accounting for progress in expanding the role of the arts; and (5) to cause exemplary arts education materials to be developed, taking advantage of state-of-the art technologies. Contains 17 references. (Mm)

From snowbird I to snowbird II : final report on the Getty Center Preservice Education Project by Los Angeles, Ca Getty Center for Education in the Arts( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Getty Center for Education in the Arts has worked with teacher education institutions to develop ways of improving professional preparation to teach art at the elementary and secondary grade levels. Individual campus projects carried out at 10 preservice teaching institutions are summarized: Brigham Young University, California State University at Sacramento, Florida State University, Indiana Unversity, Northern Illinois University, Ohio State University, University of Kansas, University of Nebraska (Omaha and Lincoln), University of Oregon, and Texas Tech University. The remainder of the report considers concepts, themes, and generalizations developed at the Snowbird ii seminar in Los Angeles in 1989. Factors that strengthen and inhibit the development of quality discipline-based art education (dbae) preservice programs are outlined. Seven inhibiting factors and strategies for overcoming them are discussed including conceptual entrenchment of colleagues and students such as child-centeredness in the schools, the complexity of dbae, insufficient time for faculty to plan and develop programs and courses, lack of an adequate research base, and insufficient funding.
