Community and Art: Creative Education Fostering Resilience through Art
Kim, Hyungsook
Asia Pacific Education Review, v16 n2 p193-201 Jun 2015
While creativity is discussed as a core competence for talented people around the world in the twenty-first century, its exhibition is determined by one's character. Creativity and character education, therefore, should not be considered as separate matters, but the systematically related matters, and exhibition of creativity, can be carried away by character. The purpose of this study is to apply community-based education through art to elementary school students in an effort to enable the learners to experience the cultural facilities of their community and to cultivate their creativity and personality, thus fostering resilience in the face of the trauma of school violence. This study focuses on the importance of the experience of creating art, which can contribute to the building of a happy and safe school environment and to the cultural development of the community. First, school violence and trauma are initially investigated based on a literature review. Second, I discuss the important role of art projects to promote creativity and foster resilience. Third, community-based art education is developed and applied to elementary school students. Finally, it is concluded that community-based art education can encourage adolescents to cultivate a healthy personality and good creativity, ultimately helping them to become well-rounded. The development of practical community-based convergence education through art can contribute to establishing a happy school culture by promoting creativity and fostering resilience to the trauma of school violence.
