Hi There! I was hoping that someone out there could help me with =
obtaining research material for my thesis/project. My topic is focusing =
on Art and Spontaneity.
This is a brief layout of what I'm going to research.
I'd like to know at what age the spontaneous level of artwork stops. =
Many times throughout the development stages of art the spontaneous =
interest fades out, usually around 8th, 9th and 10th grade.
I feel this is important in the field of art education because we want =
art to be incorporated into their learning. What causes this, when does =
this happen, and how do you fix it. It would be nice to know when this =
occurs so we can begin to address this lose of spontaneous artwork.
Is it developing new curriculum or a multicultural curriculum centered =
around cooperative learning.
I am interested in any references that you may know of along with your =
general thoughts on this topic.=20
This topic may help keep the interest up in our Art electives and =
programs as school districts begin to change.
Thank you for your time and cooperation.
Penelope Green
