The Methods in My Madness

Research Proposal Presentation

And an excerpt about the significance of the study…the only part where we could wax a little idealistic…;)

“It is our responsibility as art educators to draw attention to the silence of our students’ artistic voices as a cultural void.  If we will expose ourselves and our students to this vacuum, it may very well suction out of our hearts, minds, and hands that which our world needs from us. When students are only exposed to and taught to create artwork that replicates pedestaled artists and styles foreign to the time and place in which they live, the subject of art-making gets hidden in a dusty corner of their minds.  This study will investigate what art educators can do to promote student engagement and contributions in art-making, and it will provide art educators with a list of strategies for doing so.”
