Art education, Art in public schools
In this project I address two societal assumption concerning the discipline of art and their implication for art education. These assumptions are that i) art is primarily a "creative" endeavor with little educational value; and, ii) that the ability to make art requires some sort of rare, innate talent. In my view these are the primary reasons that art is increasingly marginalized in public school programs and our society at large.
