Art Appreciation in Practice in Sydney, Australia.
Marsh, Margaret
The objectives of this paper are: to describe art education in New South Wales, Australia; to explain the Student Centered Art Appreciation (SCAA) Model; and to examine how and why the model works in the classroom. Art education is explored from four perspectives or theoretical frameworks: (1) the New South Wales Visual Arts Syllabus; (2) the SCAA Model; (3) an adaptation of the model for a wider category of purposes; and (4) cognitive theories of educational psychology related to the cognitive processes that can occur with the use of the model. Issues of learner awareness, art language, art history, and the need to employ multiple models also are addressed. There is a need for further research; however, it is suggested that the SCAA is a good model that works in the classroom because of the social context in which learning takes place. (LBG)
