Join us for the 81st Annual Kutztown University Art Education Conference: We are Makers of… Art, Curriculum, Change! where surprising connections will be drawn between the making of art and the making of curriculum.
Relevant art instruction continues to be shaped by new art forms developed by artists, while artists continue to be shaped by
experimentation. This relationship is heightened as teachers dedicate themselves to the creation of new knowledge (research) in their studio and classroom practices. This continual back and forth “conversation” between art-making, curriculum development, and instructional practices renders art education a unique site for teaching and learning. Through play, creative approaches to both making and curriculum emerge. Possibility for change heightens as we consider the impact of studio activities in concert with pedagogical approaches building meaningful experiences for all learners. These emergent forms hold forth the potential to influence ourselves, our students, and our society. How do we continue to “envision, express, observe, reflect, engage and persist and better understand art worlds (Hetland, et. al., 2007; 2013)?”
Please come and contribute to this day devoted to MAKING-as-practice and MAKING-as-opportunity for change!
