The Art of Storytelling: The Co-Construction of Cultural Knowledge
Peralta, Andres
Art Education, v63 n2 p25-30 Mar 2010
According to van der Veer and Valsiner (1991), a creative individual is a co-constructor of culture, rather then a mere follower of the efforts of others. This instructional resource discusses the work of Juan Miguel Ramos (b. 1971), a Post-Chicano artist, who makes use of representations to produce new meanings about the world in which he lives. His focus is on the ways in which identity is socially constructed through storytelling, media, culture, and environment. In this instructional resource, students learn how storytelling enhances self-understanding in cultural contexts. (Contains 1 figure and 2 endnotes.)
