Art Animates: Ideas Inspired by a University-Sponsored Summer Arts Academy for Middle and High School Students
Danker, Stephanie; French, Kelley
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v89 n4-5 p118-124 2016
Art can provide a vehicle for animating learning. Teachers bring ideas to life through curriculum, while artists realize their ideas through images, often translating between forms, media and spaces. This paper describes the context, content and format of a residential Summer Arts Academy for gifted and talented middle and high school students, held on a university campus. In 2013, the theme of the visual art program at the Summer Arts Academy was animation, which linked to the summer exhibition at the local art museum. Collaborations among university faculty, public school teachers, community artists, and art museum and gallery staff have potential to animate learning for students, while stimulating additional forms of public engagement.
