ARTISTS' IDEAS ABOUT ART AND THEIR USE IN EDUCATION.
MICHAEL, JOHN A.
SPECIFIC CONCEPTS OF PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS WERE SURVEYED FOR APPLICATION TO ART INSTRUCTION IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS. A REVIEW WAS MADE OF WRITINGS BY ARTISTS, CRITICS, AND HISTORIANS IN SEVERAL AREAS OF ART (ENAMELING, JEWELRY, PAINTING, POTTERY, PRINTMAKING, SCULPTURE, AND WEAVING). THE DATA GATHERED FROM THESE SOURCES OF ART EXPERIENCES WERE USED IN DEVELOPING A QUESTIONNAIRE. THIS QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO 350 ARTISTS, REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ART AREAS STUDIED. COMPLETED RESPONSES WERE RECEIVED FROM 56 PERCENT OF THE ORIGINAL SAMPLE. FOR THE MOST PART, ARTISTS OF ALL AREAS RESPONDED SIMILARLY TO THE ITEMS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE. ALL ITEMS (50) WHICH RECEIVED A HIGH CONSENSUS (70 PERCENT AND ABOVE) WERE GROUPED TOGETHER TO FORM HYPOTHETICAL CONCEPTS FOR THE ART EDUCATOR. LOW CONSENSUS CONCEPTS (43 ITEMS) WERE NOTED IN A SECOND GROUPING. THE CONSENSUS REPRESENTED ALL OF THE RESPONDING ARTISTS EXCEPT WHEN SPECIAL AREAS OF ART WERE CONSIDERED. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE FORMULATED CONCEPTS BE EXPERIMENTALLY TESTED IN THE CLASSROOM. (RS)
