This Is Not the National Curriculum for Art: A Collaborative Project with Children on the Discourses of Art and Education.
de Rijke, Victoria; Cox, Geoff
This resource, which includes nine colored postcards, offers words and pictures to stimulate classroom discussion of the key issues relating to both the institutions of art and of education. It attempts to challenge and question the current relations of power, hierarchies, and received information in the field of art education. Part 1, "On Teaching Impressionism," takes of reference in the art curriculum. Part 2, "This Is the National Curriculum for Art," examines issues related to contemporary art practice and its placing in the range of contexts that include the gallery, the school, and the National Curriculum for Art. Part 3, "On Art and/or Education," questions the purposes to which artistic production is made. Part 4, "This is Not," takes the tactical role of negation to resist a sense of preferred meaning, leading to part 5, "Questioning Children: What is a Question?," which examines the method of inquiry underpinning the entire project.
