Hi Everyone my name is David Quinlan and I'm calling about and or
willing to discuss further the attributes in the use of both the Inquiry
and
DBAE in art education. The art teachers that I have come in contact with tend
to use Formalism as a way to critique students work. When I suggest that there
are other and much more pedantic ways of helping students analyse their work I
get the cold hard stare. Wolfelin was really great in bringing forth an art
discipline of seeing but as we all know it doesn't cover everything. What
are the main differences between inquiry verses discipline based art
education?
I feel that from what I've read inquiry is more nonsequential organiza-
tionally in the lesson plan format.I wonder, just how many of us have block
scheduling or work in magnet schools where you have more than forty three
minutes and the visual resources to do it. I have a great book to recomend if
you get a chance Rosalind Ragan's Art Talk. I live in central New york near
Ithaca,and have taught art only one year.If you have any thoughts you would
like to share please share it with the digestgroup.
