Admitting Their Worlds: Reflections of a Teacher/Researcher on the Self-Initiated Art Making of Children
Grube, Vicky
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v10 n7 Feb 2009
"I'm trying the least of anything to control this drawing ... in fact I want it to run away with me." says Billy, a fifth grader who reads at 13th grade level. He clears his throat and begins to sketch and his stories flood the page. This qualitative research paper looks at what free sketchbook drawing does for a group of boys ages 8-14 who participate in an after-school drawing club. The writing blends critical pedagogy with the influence of the adult media culture (e.g, war, television, movies, video games, and the internet) and my perceptions as researcher/teacher.
