Insights into the Integration of Traditional Filipino Arts in Art and Design Education: Voices from the Academe
Loza, Cynthia B.; De Guzman, Allan B.; Jose, Regalado T.
International Journal of Art & Design Education, v27 n2 p124-132 Jun 2008
This article presents the first segment of a qualitative study that explores the feasibility of integrating traditional arts in Philippine art and design education. The views of educators on traditional arts were sought to provide an impetus for the study and a springboard for discussion regarding the relevance of traditional Filipino arts in a predominantly Westernised educational system. The educators' views and opinions on the central question, "Why and how should the study of traditional Filipino arts be integrated in the art and design programme?" will be used to guide a trial integration of the learning of traditional arts in tertiary art and design classes. They will form part of the multiple perspectives that will be gathered from various sectors throughout the course of research. This phenomenological study, on the whole, seeks to uncover the potentials of traditional arts as a rich resource for learning, particularly for students of art and design.
