Rech Penn, Leslie – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2019
In the current climate of state-mandated education standards and assessment that prioritize math and language arts in U.S. schools, drawing, an accessible and/or pleasurable endeavor for a wide variety of children, is undervalued.

Trafí-Prats, Laura – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2017
In this article, I discuss the concept of compositionism as an onto-epistemology of being and knowing that questions human exceptionalism.

I propose…

Trafi-Prats, Laura – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2012
This study uses an interdisciplinary framework inspired by Ranciere (1991, 2009, 2010) ideas such as "intellectual equality," "redistribution of the sensible," and "aesthetic heterogenesis" to analyze the production of video-narratives of self and place within a group of Latino eight-year-olds attending public school…

Broome, Jeffrey L. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2009
Multi-age classrooms feature the purposeful grouping of students from two or more grade levels in order to form communities of learners. During the past 40 years, multi-age education has been examined in literature and research in many different ways and contexts.

Duncum, Paul – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2008
Studying imagery, irrespective of the kind, must focus equally upon its aesthetic attractiveness, its sensory lures, and its oftentimes dubious social ideology. The terms "aesthetic" and "ideology" are addressed as problematic and are defined in current, ordinary language terms: aesthetics as visual appearances and their effects and ideology as a…

Teaching about Native artworks as part of school arts curriculum can serve to pass on traditional ecological knowledge while also contextualizing colonialism's influence on traditional and contemporary Native arts practices. This article explores how schools can actively engage in community arts partnerships with American Indians who have…

Graham, Mark A. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2007
In contemporary life and education, the local is marginalized in favor of large-scale economies of consumption that are indifferent to ecological concerns. The consequences of neglecting local human and natural communities include a degraded habitat, loss of wilderness, alienation, rootlessness, and lack of connection to communities. Critical…
