This article is based on a study that was funded in 2001 by the National Art Education Foundation and it focused on the use of arts education in juvenile detention centers in the United States (107). The purpose of this study was to figure out if art education helped children and teens in juvenile detention centers to have a better vision of the future (107). The National Art Education Foundation created a survey to support their research and it was composed of 17 multiple choice and short answer questions (108). The questions in the survey asked people of each institution about funding, instruction, demographics, and participation in the art programs. This survey was given to each of the 478 public residential juvenile correctional facilities
By having art programs in schools students gain skills such as, problem solving, critical and creative thinking, integration of multiple skill sets, and working with others. Qualities such as these are very necessary for creating exemplary students. Arts have already proven to help with many long standing problems but critical thinking is needed for jobs in the outside world. “ … Creating art supports problem-solving, creative thought and critique like no other discipline.” ( Schoales,2) By participating in artistic classes students gain discipline that most classes fail to teach. These valuable lessons learned from art can’t be found anywhere
1. Do we create a hierarchy within archaeology of the tools/human fossils over the unknown objects/art objects by placing more importance on the sciences than the arts, i.e. we readily fund certain projects of a scientific nature (i.e. proving the missing link) vs projects of a purely aesthetic nature (restoration of pre-Columbian burial wrapping weavings)? What motivates this hierarchy, if a hierarchy exists?
Despite the diversity of art concepts taught, it can become quite difficult for one teacher to teach 23 elementary classes and 11 middle school classes. As part of the Miami Dade College community, we can help and stress the
I think what we are looking for in this question is the procedures used to formally analyze art work. The first step is to describe the work. This process should include The title of the work as well as who created it and when and the medium used to create the work. Our course description calls for information regarding who currently owns the artwork and its current location. Other information that can be included in the description is what kind of art it is and some history of the artist as well as history on the subject.
In Art 101, we have been studying various art works but our group was intrigued by chapter twenty. This chapter is about the history between the eighteenth century and nineteenth century. We discuss the classical look for paintings and architecture. We also see how they develop through the following years. I find it most appealing with how many cultures created such art I will explain later. With European culture increasing with ideas, it created the art world we have today. There are three specific paintings I studied in chapter twenty that I enjoyed the most.
This class allows me to explore ancient civilizations and discover how culture was born. However, it also makes me wonder about American civilization and culture and how they were born. Through the help of art, I am able to visually see what history was like and notice different trends and patterns that early Americans had. Originally, I planned to choose early American paintings and compare them to some of the other art we have studied. But as all good plans go, it was quickly derailed by one outrageous exhibit.
The goals of this class are to be able to see ideas that are shown in a visual form, and recognize, think about, and evaluate these pieces. By the end of the course we should be about to analyze works of art based on the understanding of the piece. As well have a basic knowledge of the major art movements and styles throughout the history that is covered in the class, and how art is changed by culture and historic events.
It will also be used for the teacher to determine how often art appreciation is demonstrated in her students’ interest, hobbies, and choices. Although the survey is a form for the students rate themselves on, it will bring about an awareness of art related habits, whether the students are engaging in them or not. The survey presents art related activities for the students to consider. The objective is for demonstration of knowledge and application of art appreciation to improve among the seventh grade art students. The survey aids in this endeavor as it will not only provide some insight as to how often the students are proving their understanding of the value of art, but it will also support the teacher in the execution of her lessons for increasing their understanding. The teacher will also be able to reflect upon the information and use it to judge whether the student’s art interest have increased or
Every student loves to listen to music, but most don't want to make it themselves. Some people believe that students should be required to take a fine arts class. That would include classes like chorus, orchestra, band, theater, and art. Requiring students to take a fine arts class is a inconsiderate idea for not only students that you are forcing to take a class they don't want, but also students that want to take the class but are forced into a class with students that just don't care.
Throughout my academic career, I have always been confined to a classroom for each of my classes, whether they consisted of physics, European history, or Spanish. To me, some courses are suited for a classroom, while others seem to desperately warrant a more extensive learning opportunity in order to fully appreciate the material. In particular, I believe that art history would be improved immensely by experiencing and learning first-hand the nuances of the connection between pieces of art and their cultural significance.
There needs to be an understanding to the strength and diversity art can offer additional subjects. Developing the skills to observe and learn to comprehend is valuable to not only art but all academic classes.
Art can be defined as, human effort to imitate, supplement, alter, or counteract the work of nature. It’s also the conscious or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty, specifically the production of the beautiful in a graphic or plastic medium (freedictionary.com). It is the class of objects subject to aesthetic criteria; works of arts collectively as paintings, sculpture, or drawings: (ex. museum of art; an art collection). Art can also be the principles of methods governing any craft of learning; (ex. the art of baking; the art of selling).
