Blogging, Zines, and Narratives: New Dialogues in Art History
Belleville, Rebecca
Art Education, v67 n2 p14-18 Mar 2014
In this article, the author examines how art educators can create narrators of art history rather than those who ascribe truth to the opinion of a few. She presents a series of tangible classroom activities that will potentially help art history become meaningful to students' lives. The author states that students have a right to access art history in a way that is meaningful and relevant to their 21st-century lives, which she believes involves varied approaches to understanding artists and their artwork. By addressing art history through myriad lenses, students can access a foreign world of ideas and attain the tools necessary for lifelong exploration and meaning making. In her opinion, art educators ought to focus on ways in which they can make art history as exciting and tangible in the classroom as seeing their favorite work of art in person.
