Anonymous Green Painting: An Artifact of Resistance as Danger and Hope in an Early Childhood Educational Setting
Kinard, Timothy A.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v28 n2 p195-215 2015
A "child's painting" is narrated as a contextualized artifact, situated in a school, a curriculum, and a society. It is a study of this object and the meanings that can be made by examining it in context, using an "ethic of resistance" and an analysis of curriculum spaces. This contextualization is designed to contribute to the continuing conversation about "go[ing] beyond all kinds of binary thinking". The binary of interest here is that which positions "adults" and "children" within the constructs of power and powerlessness in educational settings.
