Social/Ecological Caring with Multicultural Picture Books: Placing Pleasure in Art Education
Reisberg, Mira
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v49 n3 p251-267 2008
This study explores the concept of finding pleasure in social and ecological caring from the a/r/tographic stance of the author as artist, researcher, and teacher. I combine place-based and visual culture art education with multicultural children's picture books to promote more connection and pleasure in the teaching and learning process. The article also provides an exploratory model for art education reform, encouraging art teachers to participate in pleasurable forms of social and ecological caring by becoming art educator activists. (Contains 1 figure and 7 footnotes.)
