Canadian Art Partnership Program in Finland
Ketovuori, Mikko
Journal for Learning through the Arts, v7 n1 2011
This article is about a multidisciplinary R&D project in which a Canadian Learning Through The Arts (LTTA) program was imported to Finland in 2003-2004. Cultural differences in arts education in Finland and Canada are discussed. While Finland has a national school curriculum with all the arts included. Canada relies more on partnerships to ensure arts education for children in the schools. Despite the fact that Canadian learning methods appeared to be quite similar to the ones Finnish teachers were already using at schools, cooperation and the inclusion of an artist in the classroom enriched the normal way of schooling. The project described here was reported earlier (2007) in the dissertation "Two cultures of arts education, Finland and Canada? An integrated view." (Contains 2 figures, 1 table and 4 endnotes.)
