A SURVEY OF CURRENT TEACHING APPROACHES TO IMAGE MAKING IN THE ART SCHOOL OF BRITAIN.
ASKIN, WALTER M.
SELECTED ART SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES IN ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, AND NORTHERN IRELAND WERE SURVEYED TO DETERMINE THEIR CURRENT TEACHING APPROACHES TO IMAGERY. DATA COLLECTION INVOLVED (1) PERSONAL VISITS, (2) DISCUSSIONS WITH STUDENTS, STAFF, AND ADMINISTRATORS, (3) AN EXTENSIVE EXAMINATION OF WORKS OF ART BY STUDENTS AND ARTIST-TEACHERS, AND (4) A REVIEW OF THE GENERAL ART SCENE. FINDINGS REVEALED THAT MANY PROGRAMS IN BRITISH INSTITUTIONS, RESPONSIBLE FOR DEVELOPING ARTISTS, BRING THE PROFESSIONAL ART WORLD IN CLOSE CONJUNCTION WITH THE STUDIO CLASSROOM. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE GENERAL CHARACTER OF IDEA PRESENTATIONS IN BRITISH ART SCHOOLS WAS HELPFUL TO THE STUDENT IN HIS USE OF IMAGERY. THESE RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE--(1) INSTRUCTIONAL PROJECTS IN ART SHOULD ENCOURAGE THE EXPLORATION OF IMAGES AS A PART OF A TOTAL PICTORIAL CONCEPT, RATHER THAN AS ISOLATED ELEMENTS, AND (2) SUCH PROJECTS SHOULD PROMPT THE STUDENT TO RELY ON HIS DIRECT EXPERIENCE AND RESEARCH.
