A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT IN ART EDUCATION FOR DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING CHILDREN AND ADULTS.
SILVER, RAWLEY A.
THIS PROJECT WAS DESIGNED TO ASSESS APTITUDES, INTEREST, AND VOCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED IN THE VISUAL ARTS AND TO IDENTIFY EFFECTIVE METHODS OF TEACHING ART. A GROUP OF 54 DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING CHILDREN AND ADULTS ATTENDED EXPERIMENTAL ART CLASSES. THREE RATING SCALES AND THE TORRANCE TEST OF CREATIVE THINKING WERE THE INSTRUMENTS USED TO ASSESS APTITUDE. STUDENT INTEREST WAS MEASURED BY QUESTIONNAIRES. CRAFTSMEN, EMPLOYERS, AND ART SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS COMPLETED QUESTIONNAIRES DESIGNED TO MEASURE VOCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. CONCLUSIONS WERE--(1) APTITUDE AND INTEREST IN THE VISUAL ARTS IS AS HIGH FOR THE DEAF AS FOR THE HEARING, (2) A TALENTED DEAF PERSON CAN SUCCEED AS A CRAFTSMAN, (3) SOME PEOPLE WORKING WITH THE DEAF TEND TO UNDERESTIMATE THE APTITUDES, INTERESTS, AND VOCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE DEAF IN THE VISUAL ARTS, AND (4) ART TECHNIQUES AND CONCEPTS CAN BE CONVEYED TO DEAF STUDENTS WITHOUT THE USE OF LANGUAGE. QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSE TABULATIONS ARE PRESENTED ALONG WITH SAMPLE QUESTIONNAIRES AND RESPONSES. ELEVEN REFERENCES ARE CITED. (MW)
