This article focuses on the drawing practice of Andrew, a 4-year-old boy whose work the author encountered as part of a 12-month ethnographic study of children's drawing in a university-affiliated preschool classroom.

Manifold, Marjorie Cohee – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2017
This article addresses the human need to create uniquely beautiful things for social sharing, play and to elevate objects above functionality.

Schulte, Christopher M. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2015
Invoking Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's configuration of minor literature, the author of this case study theorizes the drawing practice of a young boy (Carter) as a process of becoming-minor. Critical to this theorization is the creation and activation of a semblance between Brent and Marjorie Wilson's (1977) treatment of the…

In this article, we use a disability studies lens to examine ways in which the artworks of disabled people are bonded in a common sociopolitical experience. We analyze the history surrounding institutional art and the emergence of community art centers at the time of deinstitutionalization in the late 20th century. As a result of this…

Richardson, Jack; Walker, Sydney – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2011
The article takes up the notion of process and artmaking as an event to be understood neither as a singular moment of forces (e.g., artist, artwork, viewer, and/or site) coming together, nor as the "end" of a productive process that is then superseded by another event. Rather, the authors suggest that the artmaking process can be understood as an…

McClure, Marissa – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2011
In this article, I present a reexamination of the myth of inherent creativity in early childhood to elucidate how still-dominant discourses of optimization such as child development, individualism, expression, creativity, and visual realism exert limiting pressures on understandings of the art and visual culture that children consume and create.…

Richardson, Jack – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2010
Recent nontraditional forms of public art have been described as interventionist, referring to art that establishes its purpose and form through the social exchanges and altered behaviors that arise as a result of its disruption of quotidian patterns of social experience in public spaces. The form of the work is revealed through the contingent…

This descriptive study investigates the bases used to support judgments of artworks by preservice art teachers at two large universities.

The 26 preservice teachers in this study used a…

Amorino, Joseph S. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2009

However, this foreclosure of artistic learning has serious implications to the concerns of emotional…

Garoian, Charles R. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2008
This article explores "prosthesis" as a metaphor of embodiment in art-based research to challenge the utopian myth of wholeness and normality in art and the human body. Bearing in mind the correspondences between amputated bodies and the cultural dislocations of art, I propose "prosthetic epistemology" and "prosthetic ontology" as embodied knowing…

Marshall, Julia – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2007
"Art practice as research" casts artmaking as inquiry--as a particularly experiential and constructivist process of learning in which imaginative synthesis and creative image making are ways of constructing knowledge. This article explores how artmaking functions as research through the creation of visual images, especially images that picture…
