In Search of the Wild Things: The Choice, Voice, and Challenge (CVC) Model for Creative Instruction
Perkins, Emma Gillespie; Carter, Mary C.
Art Education, v64 n1 p20-24 Jan 2011
This article discusses the Choice, Voice, and Challenge (CVC) Instruction, an instructional model that encourages creativity or "wild things". CVC Instruction defines ways in which classroom teachers may provide vehicles for their students' mental journeys that can lead to creative and imaginative actions and outcomes. The CVC model provides a working definition of creative instruction that can assist art teachers in their explanation of the creative process to colleagues. CVC provides a way for creativity to be explained, defined, and situated in art education practice. Creativity or the cultivation of thinking about the world through imagined ideas, symbols, and metaphors is the essence of a visual art experience. Classroom strategies can provide opportunities for creative visual thinking--the wild things of the imagination--that can transform creative processes of students. (Contains 6 figures.)
