Hi everyone,
Recently i asked for help for a friend in finding valid =
documentation to support the premise that art has intrinsic value, but =
also enhances the ability of the learner in other academic areas. Many =
of you provided excellent sources and strands to follow.
What this experience illustrated to me was that we have a deficit in =
research and support of Art Education. Plenty of how to, very little of =
the why. It is the WHY that garners support with non-art people. So =
much has been written in support of music and it's impact on the learner =
in math and other academic areas.
I think we should work as a group to begin the development of this =
research for our own needs. Perhaps we can get support for this beyond =
the list serve through the Getty Institute in terms of coordination of =
efforts or publication results. It would be nice to establish a =
conference/chat room to join those who are interested.
There would be aspects of this that could be divided up amongst us =
to generate exhaustive research with each participant being involved =
only in aspects of it. This would allow us greater scope without =
inundating given individuals. The work could be divided into strands =
with people volunteering for those that interest them. I will go into =
more detail about this if there is enough interest.
For those of you who are interested in becoming involved, please =
e-mail me directly with your e-mail address and particulars. I will =
compile (there's that word again!!) the list to be shared with =
participants directly. If we don't get this off the ground, I don't =
know who will. I don't want to spend the rest of my career waiting for =
someone else to do it when it could benefit so many. I know that no one =
of us can accomplish this alone, but together we may have tremendous =
impact on art education.
e-mail me at lckelty with your name and e-mail address if =
you wish to participate. this could take years to do but will be =
worthwhile. =20
I'm glad i found all of you on the Getty. The isolation of being the =
only art teacher in a building is relieved by your existence. =
Sincerely, Linda
