Sotomayor, Leslie C. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2019
Historically, minority women artists and scholars of color have been ignored by the White patriarchal canon of art education and the arts. I uncrate Josefina Aguilar's 14-piece clay "muñecas," which have been stored away in the Palmer Museum of Art for more than two decades, to demonstrate this lack of exposure. I position my own Latina…

Kletchka, Dana Carlisle – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2018
Critical museological perspectives have in recent years opened up new conceptual spaces for emerging forms of art museum practice. This article addresses the theme of changing ideologies and methodologies in art museums by offering an anecdote shaped by art museum practices, then theorizing potential responses from object-based, visitor-centered,…

Holt, Ann – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2017
Art educator Mary Godfrey was notably the first African American full-time faculty member hired at Penn State in 1957. In 2005, however, the extent of Penn State's archival records on Godfrey consisted of one index card in the Special Collections' card catalog that read "Godfrey, Mary E.: Retires after 22 yrs of service." In this…

Hanawalt, Christina – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2016
In this article, I investigate the mural-making experience of Mabel Spofford, an early 20th-century art educator from Massachusetts. Spofford designed and created a mural titled "Gloucester and the Friendly Sea" while attending a Pennsylvania State University Summer Arts Institute course with Viktor Lowenfeld in 1947. By placing archival…

Sunday, Kristine E. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2015
In this article, I consider the changing landscape of art education and explore potential directions for the field to situate itself within the spaces of early childhood education. I position that current understandings of child art and its use in both research and practice in the early childhood classroom are limited by a lack of connection to…

Schulte, Christopher M. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2015
The author of this article creates a semblance between Deleuze and Guattari's conception of a politics of desire and the four realities, as outlined by Brent and Marjorie Wilson. By making this theoretical move, the author advances the idea that children's drawing unfolds from one moment to the next through the assemblages of desire that are most…

Bey, Sharif – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2012
This autoethnographic study contextualizes gangland visual culture (graffiti, tattoos, public/private shrines) in order to illustrate how young African American males memorialized victims of violence between the years 1993-1997 in Beltzhoover, an inner city African American community on Pittsburgh's Southside. The author, a former resident of the…

Holt, Ann – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2012
Viktor Lowenfeld (1903-1960) has been abundantly documented as having influenced art teaching in the United States. Scarce attention, however, has been given to the significant and remarkable advancements he made to resist structures of institutionalized racism and promote inter-racial cooperation. Lowenfeld was a mentor to several notable African…

Knutson, Karen; Crowley, Kevin; Russell, Jennifer Lin; Steiner, Mary Ann – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2011
In this article, we use two studies conducted in art museum settings as a means to discuss some of the opportunities and challenges for the field of informal art education. The first study explores artmaking processes that take place in a children's museum, highlighting the need to consider the social nature of learning in informal environments.…

Green, Joshua; Kindseth, Anne – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2011
Quality arts learning can be a vehicle for personal transformation. For more than 40 years, an unwavering belief in the possibility of such transformation has sustained the nationally recognized after-school Apprenticeship Training Program (ATP) at Manchester Craftsmen's Guild (MCG). Within school walls, academic standards position the arts as a…

Gates, Leslie – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2010
The culture of isolation in schools leaves many art educators feeling that they are, in a sense, islands. Working from the idea of an island, I use the geographic metaphor of an archipelago as a means to understand the tensions between isolation and collaboration related to professional development for art educators. In this article, I describe…

Knight, Wanda B. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2010
The "sink-or-swim" ideology is pervasive in the United States society. At research universities, for example, promotion and tenure are institutional waters in which faculty are forced to sink or swim with respect to publishing. Either they publish ("swim") or they perish ("sink"). In throwing faculty overboard,…

Knight, Wanda B.; Keifer-Boyd, Karen; Amburgy, Patricia M. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2004
The value of recent theoretical perspectives in art education does not lie in providing comprehensive definitions that include all the artifacts and properties that "count" as visual culture, material culture, or mass arts. Instead, the value of articulating theoretical perspectives lies in mapping the terrain of cultural phenomena. In…
