Drawing (Past, Present, and Future) Together: A (Graphic) Look at the Reconceptualization of Art Education
Carpenter, B. Stephen, II; Tavin, Kevin M.
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v51 n4 p327-352 Sum 2010
In this graphic representation, two characters/caricatures discuss, contemplate, and fantasize the history of the field of art education, its current state, and future manifestations. The conversation is illustrated around the possible reconceptualization of art education. Through text and visual metaphors, the philosophical beliefs, theoretical formations, and discursive territories of the reconceptualization of art education and the critically compatible frameworks that inform its likelihood are drawn together. Major themes and movements such as visual culture, arts based research, community-based pedagogy, environmental and eco-art education, and lacanian psychoanalytic theory are sketched out. (Contains 14 endnotes.)
