The Deep Creek School: Technology, Ecology And The Body As Pedagogical Alternatives In Art Education, Daniel L. Collins, Charles R. Garoian Jan 1994

The Deep Creek School: Technology, Ecology And The Body As Pedagogical Alternatives In Art Education, Daniel L. Collins, Charles R. Garoian

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The Deep Creek School is grappling with a cultural condition in which the line between actual experience and its simulation has become blurred as never before. Today’s students are conversant in the language of electronic media and consumer culture--but they encounter difficulties when trying to navigate the real crises in the health of their bodies and the global environment. There is a deep sense among many of the artists and educators that we speak with that art programs nationwide are not responding sufficiently to the dramatic changes occurring in the culture at large. The precedent of fitting programs to ...


Behind, The Road Is Blocked: Art Education And Nostagia, Paul Duncum Jan 1994

Behind, The Road Is Blocked: Art Education And Nostagia, Paul Duncum

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Proponents of high culture have trusted its power as an antidote to contemporary social ills. However, art educators should be aware that the history of such attempts is a history of failure. It is a history of gradual marginalization, both of the critique and the critics, and of increasingly conservative political reaction. The critique represents, today as it has always done, a nostalgia for an idealized past. But the failure of the critique suggests that there can be no going back. It is argued that the increasing failure of this critique to positively influence social and cultural life is a ...


The Committee On Public Information And The Mobilization Of Public Opinion In The United States During World War I: The Effects On Education And Artists, Clayton Funk Jan 1994

The Committee On Public Information And The Mobilization Of Public Opinion In The United States During World War I: The Effects On Education And Artists, Clayton Funk

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The Committee on Public Information was established during World War I to turn every channel of communication and education to promote the war effort. The Committee marshaled agencies of the press, education, and advertising, among others into wartime service for the Committee. The following questions are posed: 1) To what degree did the Committee practice direct censorship in its promotion of wartime issues? 2) What was the role of education in the wartime campaigns? 3) What was the role of the artist in wartime art affect public taste? This article is based on the theory put forth by Lawrence A ...


“Truth” That Sells: Broadcast News Media In Video Art And Art Education, Mary Wyrick Jan 1994

“Truth” That Sells: Broadcast News Media In Video Art And Art Education, Mary Wyrick

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Vincent Lanier (1969), Manuel Barkan and Laura Chapman (1967), Laura Chapman (1982), Paul Duncum (1987, 1989), and Dan Nadaner (1985) have written about the implications of using mass media sources in art education. In their writings, each of these authors acknowledged the importance of film, television, and other mass media to student populations in art educational contexts. Even with these precedents and extensive literature in media studies, students today continue to uncritically consume the visual media that permeate their lives. They need to understand how contemporary culture is at least partially shaped by representations in visual media. Whether these representations ...

Editorial, Michael J. Emme, Elizabeth Garber, Charles Wieder Jan 1994

Editorial, Michael J. Emme, Elizabeth Garber, Charles Wieder

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This editorial is a model of the kind of collaborative process shared by Chuck, Elizabeth and myself throughout the growth of JSTAE 14. In this instance, given a suggested structure, Chuck wrote his portion of the editorial focusing on issues arising from the two articles where he lead the editorial team. He then sent his work to Elizabeth who wrote her editorial with reference to the articles where she took the lead, but also in response to Chuck's writing. As the third in line I have the opportunity to comment on the articles for which I had final responsibility ...


The Green Quilt: An Example Of Collective Eco-Action In Art Education, Doug Blandy, Kristin G. Congdon, Laurie Hicks, Elizabeth Hoffman, Don Krug Jan 1994

The Green Quilt: An Example Of Collective Eco-Action In Art Education, Doug Blandy, Kristin G. Congdon, Laurie Hicks, Elizabeth Hoffman, Don Krug

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

At the 1994 National Art Education Association (NAEA) Convention in Baltimore we initiated two eco-action presentations that resulted in the making and display of a Green Quilt (Blandy, Congdon, Hicks, Hoffman, & Krug, 1994a; Blandy, Congdon, Hicks, Hoffman &: Krug, 1994b). All of us have been coming to NAEA conventions for a number of years. Every year we have heard discussions on the gap between theory and practice. Discussed also has been the importance and need for activism within the NAEA. As a result of listening to these discussions, the five of us met at the 1993 convention to plan a session for 1994 ...

An Editor’S Note: Critical Theory, Art And Education, Michael J. Emme Jan 1994

An Editor’S Note: Critical Theory, Art And Education, Michael J. Emme

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

With JSTAE 14 the editorial team offers an innovation that we hope will be carried on by future editors, and will function as a provocation to the art education research community. What follows are 11 pages of images as well as a 12th work on the cover that have been selected for their relevance to the theme Eco-Techno. A review of academic publications in art education reveals extremely limited evidence of visual practice among the research. Of all the fields in academia, the one most suited to exploring the link between the many aspects of visual practice and the goals ...


Valuing Difference: Luce Irigaray And Feminist Pedagogy, Yvonne Gaudelius Jan 1994

Valuing Difference: Luce Irigaray And Feminist Pedagogy, Yvonne Gaudelius

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

The anonymous worker- the mother, the teacher- the anonymous woman. Woman defined by her fixed place in the system of reproduction. How has this come to be? How has woman become-how does she remain-an anonymous instrument in the reproduction of patriarchy? How does social reproduction relate to the position of woman as mother-as the “vehicle” of physical reproduction? In this paper, I tie questions such as these to the discipline of education, and to women's role in the underlying ideologies of our educational system. In order to do so I will approach these questions from three distinct vantage points ...


Art, Education, Work, And Leisure: Tangles In The Lifelong Learning Network, Lara M. Lackey Jan 1994

Art, Education, Work, And Leisure: Tangles In The Lifelong Learning Network, Lara M. Lackey

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

Although the field of art education has, in recent years, acknowledged the prevalence of non-formal educational sites, our literature is divided on whether this trend poses an opportunity for cooperation and strength or a threat to the status of art as a school subject. This paper consults the literature of critical theory within the domains of art, education, and leisure studies in order to examine the relationship between formal and non-formal art education. First, it considers ways in which tradition conceptualizations of art, education, leisure, and work foster an acceptance of art as experience and knowledge to be gained outside ...
