Lola's Story: Love And Resiliency, Susan R. Whiteland 2022 Arkansas State University - Main Campus

Lola's Story: Love And Resiliency, Susan R. Whiteland

International Journal of Lifelong Learning in Art Education

Lola, a hand puppet, tells her story of being constructed in a university’s special topics class for the purpose of encouraging older adults who may be experiencing loneliness and isolation. Lola is introduced to an elderly woman who bonds with the puppet. Engagement with the puppet encourages positive emotions that contribute toward resilience and subjective well-being. Lola’s story supports the idea that feelings of happiness and positivity attributed to puppetry may be instrumental in memory retention and overall socio-emotional health.


An Exploration Of Restorative Artmaking During Covid-19, Linda J. Helmick 2022 University of Missouri

An Exploration Of Restorative Artmaking During Covid-19, Linda J. Helmick

International Journal of Lifelong Learning in Art Education

This research explores a curriculum, delivered on Zoom, that blended art education with art therapy to support educators’ well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic. To understand the restorative aspects of collective artmaking and reflection, I established a series of artmaking workshops for educators via Zoom. As an artist/researcher/teacher, I made collages as an arts-based inquiry method. I found that participants needed a safe place to express, create, and share in a community of others who have similar needs, desires, and experiences, a respite from the early, terrifying days of the pandemic. Meditation, blended artmaking experiences, and reflection encouraged everyone ...


Relational Ecologies: Artistic Engagement And Mentorship Of Adults In Community Spaces, Rebecca Bourgault 2022 Boston University

Relational Ecologies: Artistic Engagement And Mentorship Of Adults In Community Spaces, Rebecca Bourgault

International Journal of Lifelong Learning in Art Education

In this article, I share insights from research and experience working as a teaching artist and mentor inside and outside traditional institutions. I investigate how relational and contemplative pedagogies promote and sustain authentic relationships of reciprocity. Narrating recent experiments with mentoring practices that emerged from the cultural landscapes of adults engaged in arts learning, the paper highlights new connections discovered through a research model borrowed from intuitive inquiry. Findings are presented as reflective stories, journal entries, or field notes gathered while mentoring graduate art education students and participating in a community of practice in the visual arts. The article demonstrates ...

Grandma Layton: A Cinderella Story, Sierra R. Mccloskey, Liz Langdon, Zoe K. Vincent, Katie A. Rice

International Journal of Lifelong Learning in Art Education

Students and their professor created a method of arts-informed research (AIR) in the practice of community-based art education to bring community members together, separated by age and distance. Essential features of this method included analyzing how local artist Elizabeth “Grandma” Layton addressed issues of ageing and mental health in her art and the direct engagement of participants in coloring her line designs. This postcard coloring project was designed during a time where extreme social distancing was in place and adapted for fifth-grade art classes and residents of a retirement community.

In AIR the choice of artist, activity, medium of expression ...

Principal Decision-Making And Perception Of Fine Arts Programing In Curricular Design, Osvaldo Altamirano

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This qualitative study included an exploration of the concept of perception affecting decision- making in curriculum design and the support of school administrators toward fine art programs in West Texas School Regions 18 and 19. Research shows that the fine arts provide students the social and creative skills to become productive citizens. However, research shows that in the current realm of urban and rural public school curricula, the fine arts exist at either a limited capacity or are nonexistent. This dissertation included an attempt to answer how a school leader's fine arts perception affects a principal's ability to ...


Free Improvisation Pedagogy: An Arts Based Research Approach To Promoting Student Agency And Embracing Difference, Nicholas Catino 2022 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Free Improvisation Pedagogy: An Arts Based Research Approach To Promoting Student Agency And Embracing Difference, Nicholas Catino

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Free Improvisation Pedagogy explores the changing perspectives of students as they co-create musical improvisations. Free improvisation is understood as a site for transformative pedagogy, with the possibility for people to break free of structures, think and perform independently, broaden their perspective of proper tonality, engage in musical democracy and equality of voice, and participate in music making that is active, participatory, and continually evolving.

Working with a small group of High School students in suburban New York, this research explores these topics and documents, through audio, video, visual art, and conversation, how students experience this type of music making and ...

A Comparison Of Nebraska Urban, Rural, And Reservation Schools' Readiness To Achieve Nebraska State Music Standards, Amber E. Knight 2022 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

A Comparison Of Nebraska Urban, Rural, And Reservation Schools' Readiness To Achieve Nebraska State Music Standards, Amber E. Knight

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

Every person has a unique perspective through which the concept of music education is filtered, and for good reason: music classrooms and programs across the United States are very different. Programs are dissimilar in everything from tangible items, such as facilities and available teaching materials, to foundational frameworks, including curriculum and program philosophy. Local geographical and cultural contexts contribute to the dissimilarity of music programs across the United States, and even those within the same region or state. The purpose of this study was to examine the commonalities and differences in school climate and access to resources among urban, rural ...


The Professionalisation Of Window Display In Britain, 1919–1939: Modern Styles, Associations, And Education, Kerry Meakin 2022 Technological University Dublin

The Professionalisation Of Window Display In Britain, 1919–1939: Modern Styles, Associations, And Education, Kerry Meakin

Doctoral

In the past forty years, the disciplines of retail, business, architectural and cultural history have all contributed to the study of department stores and other types of shops. However, these studies have only made passing references to window display and its role in retail, society and culture. This thesis focuses on the neglected subject of window display to uncover the ways in which display became a professional practice between 1919 and 1939. It argues that professionalisation in this period was the result of the interplay between three key developments: the shift in display styles, the emergence of an association, and ...

How Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, Evidence-Based Practices, And Focusing On The Long Term Benefits Of Art Education Affect Teaching, Genevieve Hardin 2022 Western Oregon University

How Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, Evidence-Based Practices, And Focusing On The Long Term Benefits Of Art Education Affect Teaching, Genevieve Hardin

Graduate Theses, Action Research Projects, and Professional Projects

This Action Research Project will be informed by INTASC standards. These standards make sure that teachers are held to rules that encourage good teaching and act as borders in which that good teaching should take place. It is also informed by my own philosophy of education. It is difficult to pin down any one philosophy of education that I unequivocally support. The conclusion that I have come to is that the best teaching is more an amalgamation of theories. It shifts and evolves to fit the students at hand, and is ever growing.

My focus for this research was how ...


Creative Changemaking : Designing Is Teaching, Kaitlyn Cirielli 2022 Rhode Island School of Design

Creative Changemaking : Designing Is Teaching, Kaitlyn Cirielli

Masters Theses

What this is is a candid and current interpretation of thoughts and findings from the collection of resources I was fortunate enough to have encountered throughout my time here. Some of these writings are written specifically for artists, some for arts educators, some for designers and activists, and even some on psychotherapy.

All these topics bouncing off each other, as I read them with the same questions, generated their own unique sentiment. I feel like I’m just beginning to understand what this is, and will share as best I can what I do understand so far.

There is still ...


Revolution Of Steam Education: The Importance Of Interdisciplinary Art Education (Steam) In Elementary Education, Suyu Chen 2022 Rhode Island School of Design

Revolution Of Steam Education: The Importance Of Interdisciplinary Art Education (Steam) In Elementary Education, Suyu Chen

Masters Theses

This thesis discusses how interdisciplinary art education benefits young children from different aspects, including gender bias in disciplines, developing creativity and imagination, motivating children to engage the class and improving their efficiency of studying. Through an interview with a STEAM educator and my own curriculum development, I show some examples of what STEAM can look like in the elementary class. I demonstrate that there is evidence showing that STEAM education can create an engaging learning environment for young children. When STEAM projects are introduced, children are more focused and interested in classroom activities when compared to STEM projects alone.

Deconstruct The Center: Making Space For The Voices In The Margins, Taylor Varnado

Masters Theses

This thesis explores the implementation of culturally relevant/responsive teaching within the art classroom. The question that guided the research was: How can art teachers incorporate culturally relevant teaching into their curriculum to support equity and inclusion within the educational setting? In order to answer this question, I examined the current state of implementation through interviews, surveys, a literature review, work-based experiences, and classroom observations. The researcher determined a need for additional resources and a pathway for implementation through this examination.
