I am reviewing censorship issues in art education. I am a graduate student
at the University of Arizona and a middle school art teacher. I would
appreciate any responses related to censorship issues in your school at any
level. Do you have a policy or "rules" for visual images that may or may not
be expressed in your class? How do you know the latest "gang" related
symbols and if students are expressing these to get a response from you or
your peers? How do you know satenism is behind their visual thinking, if
they tell you it is only a dirt bike symbol? I want to establish art making
"rules" is my classroom from research in this area. Any information,
opinions or situations concerning this issue would really be helpful to me as
a teacher and a researcher. I believe that my students should be able to
express with freedom and interest. I'm just not sure with how much in a
public school environment.
Many thanks to every response.......................Lisa email-
