The Way They See It: An Evaluation of the Arts across the Curriculum Project
Coutts, Glen; Soden, Rebecca; Seagraves, Liz
International Journal of Art & Design Education, v28 n2 p194-206 Jun 2009
This article reports on an evaluation to interrogate the efficacy of a Scottish Government sponsored initiative to introduce an arts-infused education model to primary (elementary) and secondary (high) schools called Arts Across the Curriculum. Between April 2005 and December 2007 the evaluation team gathered data about this three-year pilot project, using a variety of instruments including surveys, structured observations, interviews and video diaries. This article presents some of the findings from the evaluation and in particular it focuses on the artists' views of the efficacy of the project; in short we wanted to know how they "saw it". It should be noted that the research team that evaluated the initiative had no say in the design of the project.
