An Analysis of Recent Research Conferences in Art Education. Final Report.
The influence of conferences in various parts of the world upon art education was studied. The purposes of this study are: (1) to glean significant recommendations from the conference reports and, by this process, to isolate areas of overlap, instances of shared concern and recommendations which were repeated in reference to seemingly different concerns, and (2) to document the history of the Arts and Humanities Program as manifested through these conferences. The specific recommendations which flowed out of the conference reports differed widely because the topics at the 15 different conferences were diverse. Four clusters of recommendations which were shared by more than one conference were extracted, however. These related to teacher education, to interdisciplinary cooperation, to increasing student contact with bona fide art objects or producing artists, and finally, to film-making and other processes whereby visual images can be reproduced, transported, isolated, or compared for educational purposes.
