A Survey of Arts-in-Education in New York City. Occasional Paper Series.
Bridge, R. Gary; And Others
This report contains the results of a 1978 study of arts programs conducted through the public and private schools community organizations and art institutions that provide art education for New York City public school children. The process of "arts in education" is defined as "any person or persons imparting knowledge through a medium of art about art itself or about another subject." The report is based on 152 questionnaires returned in a survey of nearly 400 nonprofit organizations providing such programs. The objectives and research methodology used in the survey are reviewed. Survey results are analyzed in relation to the following areas: (1) who provides and who receives arts in education services; (2) what services are provided to public schools; and (3) how arts in education programs are evaluated. Characteristics of specific services, including performances, student workshops, lectures and demonstrations, are discussed. Several recommendations in the areas of standardizing program goals, information dissemination, and program funding, staffing and evaluation are offered, as is a tentative agenda for future research. Appended to the report are a roster of the study's advisory committee, a copy of the questionnaire distributed to individual programs, a list of respondents to the questionnaire, and a glossary of the types of organizations providing arts in education services.
