Hi Christy, I liked reading your answer to Theresa who was wandering about
DBAE and Elliot Eisner. I feel similarly about him as you: >Eisner is a
guru of
mine. His recent stuff on cognition theory is exciting. its funny he
always loosens the wild thoughts in me. Different interpretation, or was
it the context I'm in, or the hisory he was in? :) > So I wonder if you
could tell me more about this most recent stuff of his. Is there a new book
or is this in an article, I would be very thankful if you could help with
further information on it. As far as Theresaīs wonderings about DBAE, I
think it is very true that the ideamakers of DBAE would not feel it should
be rigid. I also would like to say to Theresa; take from it what best works
for you. I work with DBAE more and more but donīt find it rigid at all. And
I donīt measure how much criticism or asthetics I use but it just becomes a
natural part of the teaching after awhile. It is like my breadmaking, I
donīt use a receipe but put in what I feel it needs each time; one day it
may be more whole wheat, another more oats but it has to be a balance. This
was just for a little fun. But really it is the best way of teaching art
for me and I also find that apart from making the students learn more, be
happier and make wonderful works it also makes parent happier to feel that
art is another discipline not just a time to make kids have fun and use
their hands. Regards from Iceland, Rosa
