The Way We Get By: Aesthetic Engagement with Place

The intersection of aesthetics and ethics has a long history in philosophy. Kant wrote The Critique of Judgement as means to use aesthetic judgment to reflect how an ethical judgment could be both universal and particular; the result of judgment “must involve a claim to validity for all men.”[1] However, in the context of contemporary environmentalism, there is still much ambiguity and countless bewildering suggestions for the relationship between aesthetics and ethics in actual practical modes of existence.

Some contemporary art practices however, directly encourage a connection between aesthetics and ...


Theater Education Through The Common Core, Brandon Nease 2014 Chapman University

Theater Education Through The Common Core, Brandon Nease

Undergraduate Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

As school budgets have plummeted, one of the extra curriculums that has suffered by losing funding has been the theatre department (wheeler 2007). The common core of education focuses on the four subjects of math, science, English, and history. The subjects are traditionally separated from each other with separate specialized teachers. However, several instructors try to utilize various methods in order to teach individual subjects more effectively. Even though the arts as a separate subject have slowly been cut from school programs around the nation, they have become an integral part of many teacher's curriculum to aid students in ...


The Psychology Of Performance: A Growing Art, Shaina Hammer 2014 Chapman University

The Psychology Of Performance: A Growing Art, Shaina Hammer

Undergraduate Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

Somehow, though Chapman University is relatively small, there is a great deal of distance between each of its academic fields; the actors don't know what the music building looks like, the musicians have no idea what the dramatists are up to, and no one has any idea where the dance classes are held. But not only do the students of Chapman University's College of Performing Arts not know one another, they don't understand one another. More than once I have encountered a student with the same self-confidence issue as another. Without a doubt, performance majors have a ...


Dreams Of A Motley Graduation Cap: A Proposal For Stand-Up Comedy In Higher Education, David Patterson 2014 Chapman University

Dreams Of A Motley Graduation Cap: A Proposal For Stand-Up Comedy In Higher Education, David Patterson

Undergraduate Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

It is said that the most valuable tool an education at a liberal arts university is how it produces well rounded people with a better understanding of themselves and the world around them. To produce people not only aware of current issues, but with the toolbelt needed to assess them and shed new light. If this is true, then I propose that the goals of liberal arts university are synonymous with the goals of a comedian.

In this thesis, I mean to draw ties to the world of stand up comedy and within the world of liberal arts academia. I ...

A Basic Qualitative Research Study Using A Constructivist Lens: Using Technologies To Infuse The Art Museum Into A High School Visual Arts Curriculum, Laura R. James Ms. 2014 SelectedWorks

A Basic Qualitative Research Study Using A Constructivist Lens: Using Technologies To Infuse The Art Museum Into A High School Visual Arts Curriculum, Laura R. James Ms.

Laura R James Ms.

While attending a district professional development seminar, I became shockingly aware of the lack of technology teachers were using in their classrooms. I decided to set up virtual visits to museums to allow high school students to look at and talk about art as if they were on a field trip. As an art teacher, I am faced with a limited budget to support my art curriculum, and field trips have never really been an option. Art museums have proven to be a valuable resource for art education curriculum. I started to research literature to find studies in which others ...

Journal of Media Literacy Education

The Elizabeth Thoman Archive at the Harrington School of Communication and Media, University of Rhode Island, has the last complete kit of one of the milestones in the early chronology of media literacy, the 1972 Media Now curriculum. This curriculum was the first of its kind, using self-contained lesson modules that were part of a larger series of kits, text references, and accompanying workbook. Its self-directed learning model gave students the opportunity to learn about the media, by doing, responding to, and reflecting on core concepts of media production. Using physical artifacts from the Media Now kit, historical documents, promotional ...

Ipads And Service Learning Join Hands For Lifelong Artistic Literacy, Susan R. Whiteland

Journal of Art for Life

In this article the author discusses the linking of art education policy and technology with the goal of lifelong artistic literacy. The author reviews newly drafted national common core frameworks that encourage the use of technology with art and compares her curriculum for teaching pre-service art educators. By recalling her university students’ recent intergenerational service learning experience with iPads the author determines that the mobile devices may be instrumental for implementing technology in her curriculum that encourages lifelong artistic literacy.


Expanding Art's Audience, Tony Connors 2014 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Expanding Art's Audience, Tony Connors

Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato

This paper investigates the need for contemporary art museums to expand their audience to fit their role as educational institutions. It is based on research that looks at ways museums have typically been operated in the past and then focuses on newer modes of operation, using the Brooklyn Museum as an example of a museum that educates and reaches a greater audience. Lastly, the paper looks at how particular artists have broken the mold of presenting art in order to interact with and relate to audiences in new ways. This research explains ways that art can be made accessible to ...


Art On A Trash Can: Art For Life With A Twist, Yichien Cooper 2014 Florida State University

Art On A Trash Can: Art For Life With A Twist, Yichien Cooper

Journal of Art for Life

The marriage of art and life has always seemed an ideal one to me, until a recent children's art contest in the City of Richland, WA prompted me to rethink it. In this article, I will discuss the limitations of the marriage of art with life. My discussion is drawn from objects submitted in the children’s art contest, observations of conflicting examples of public art, conversations about the role of public art and the reasons for both positive and negative perceptions toward public art. Questions such as “should there be a limit for the marriage of art and ...

This study considers the possible impact of children’s artistic self-perceptions This four-year study focused on afterschool visual arts instruction in an inner city school with third, fourth, and fifth grade students who were mentored weekly by college-age students on a one-on-one basis. Through the theoretical lens of social learning theory (Vygotsky, 1934/78; Bandura, 1977; Noddings, 1995), the program’s impact on children’s sense of agency was analyzed. The researcher enlisted the use of a measurement survey each spring semester over the course of the study. Utilizing the dependent means t-test, it was determined that students showed ...

Building A Community Art Garden: A Participatory Eco-Arts Based Educational Research Project, Beryl R. Cohen

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The purpose of this study is to explore how a community comes to understand their sense of place as they create a school art garden, and then consider their relationship to it, and to the natural world. Using qualitative arts-based methods of inquiry and A/r/tography, I weave and construct text and visual images, which portray human actions and experiences within the framework of Environmental Inquiry. As a participant, I also respond to the project through the creation of artwork.

Rich community narratives and data analysis resulted in the following themes: Teaching and Learning; Activism; Connection to Nature; Health ...


Examining Artistic Processes And Transfer, Trish Osler 2014 Western University

Examining Artistic Processes And Transfer, Trish Osler

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This exploratory qualitative case study inquires into the relationship between artistic processes in organizational theory and in education, examining the perception of transfer from a lived arts experience to student leadership contexts. The literature review considers the parallel evolution of artistic thinking strategies in organizations and in education, using three processes as a basis for comparison: tolerance for ambiguity, a collaborative culture of critique, and the empowerment of group members at all stages of an initiative. Evidence of these processes was analyzed for its relevance to leadership development using documents from single-gendered independent schools, participant journal entries, and interviews with ...


Perceptions Of Open-Ended Art By Fourth-Grade Students And Their Teacher, Amanda M. Swanson 2014 Northern Michigan University

Perceptions Of Open-Ended Art By Fourth-Grade Students And Their Teacher, Amanda M. Swanson

NMU Master's Theses

This qualitative classroom action research began with a problem that developed over the course of a school year at a rural kindergarten through fourth-grade Title One elementary school in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Before beginning this research project, many of the students were highly engaged in their learning; however, some students were identified as not engaged and seemed to be coasting. The teacher researcher decided to try something new to engage all fourth-grade students. She decided to present her students with a constructivist approach to solving the problem of stacks of unwanted phonebooks from the district office. She challenged fourth-grade ...

The Effectiveness And Impressions Between Responsive And Non-Responsive Websites Displayed On A Computer, Tablet And Cell Phone: Displaying Websites Of Eichler Homes, Camille Mary Duckett

Graphic Communication

The researcher designed two types of websites for Eichler Homes in Thousand Oaks. The researcher created both responsive and non-responsive websites.

The researcher performed a study and observed the data. Afterwards, the data was analyzed to see people’s preferences and which one they liked best.

Most of the general public is not knowledgeable about responsive design.

A Basic Qualitative Study Investigating The Use Of Differentiated Instruction In A High School Art Classroom, Kristen Bartkowski 2014 SelectedWorks

A Basic Qualitative Study Investigating The Use Of Differentiated Instruction In A High School Art Classroom, Kristen Bartkowski

Kristen Bartkowski

The initial purpose of this study was to understand how one art teacher applied aspects of differentiated instruction in her art classroom. In the review of literature, I documented research and theories about differentiated instruction, which showed an overlap between theories of constructivism and differentiated instruction.

The methodology relied on a basic qualitative case study in which I played the role of participant as observer. Through the use of observation, interview, and document analysis, I sought to uncover aspects of differentiated instruction that one high school art teacher applied in her classroom over a period of twelve weeks for one ...
