Embodied Aesthetics, Evocative Art Criticism: Aesthetically Based Research
White, Boyd
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v52 n2 p142-154 2011
This study introduces one approach to arts-based research, one that emerges from aesthetic encounters and ensuing art criticism. Examples are drawn from one preservice teacher's attempts to write art criticism, both discursive and evocative, based on her personal responses to a chosen artwork. The articulation of her responses is a form of research into herself as a teacher-to-be, her capacities for meaning making in relation to artworks, and her abilities to share that discovered meaning. The study concludes with a discussion of the difficulties inherent in that task. (Contains 5 endnotes.)
