Contemporary Art and the Role of Interpretation: Reflections from Tate Modern's Summer Institute for Teachers
Charman, Helen; Ross, Michaela
International Journal of Art & Design Education, v25 n1 p28-41 Feb 2006
Recent research indicates that the taught curriculum in art and design secondary school education pays scant attention to meaning-making in visual art. This article explores possibilities for teaching interpretation through a report on an action-research project based on Tate Modern's Summer Institute for Teachers. In doing so it argues for the value and necessity of interpretation as a taught skill. (Contains 4 figures.)
