(Re)visioning the Self through Art
Henry, Sue Ellen; Verica, Joseph M.
Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, v51 n2 p153-167 2015
How can art function as a medium through which to re(view) the self and others? This article explores this central question through an interdisciplinary classroom experiment that brought theories of identity development in a multiculturalism classroom together with principles of portraiture present in an introductory drawing class. Interview analysis with a dozen participants suggests that such disciplinary interactions can create space for the exploration of stereotypes and "flash judgments" as well as lead to intense awareness of risk-taking and vulnerability so necessary to multicultural education.
