Teaching Art to Amish Children. A Participant Observation Study of Teaching Art to Amish Children.
The purpose of this study is to describe, analyze, and interpret through participant observation the teaching of art to Amish eighth graders in a public school. The description of what and how art is taught by a non-Amish art teacher raises questions of appropriate content, patterning of instruction, strategies for developing perceptual awareness and artistic competence, censorship, values of simplicity/harmony versus complexity/disharmony, and points towards fundamentalist concerns.
