Stages of Inquiry in Art: Model, Rationale and Implications.
Armstrong, Carmen L.
The structure of inquiry in art is a set of behavioral stages, comparable with creative process stages, in which persons think in and about the visual mode of perception. The stages include behaviors identified by Dewey as factors or phases of reflective thought and as stages in the pattern of inquiry. The stages also show relatedness to problem solving, critical thinking behaviors, and other delineations of inquiry that can be extended into practice by art teachers. The behavioral stages of inquiry in art are: (1) set a direction, arouse an interest, note a problem worthy of interest; (2) discover, experiment, find a focus; (3) visually analyze, examine closely; (4) classify, sort, organize, form concepts; (5) personally analyze, reflect, and react to personal preferences; (6) select, hypothesize, give form to an idea; (7) elaborate, modify, restructure; (8) synthesize; and (9) self-evaluate, as artist or as critic.
