History of Art Education
Art Education and Collaboration: Disconnect/ed.
This research attempts to address the issue of the absence of collaborative curriculum in Art Education throughout most of the 20th century. Although prominent social development theory supports a classroom based in interaction, the art classroom nurtured the Modernist, autonomous view of the artist in society for most of the 20th century. This research acts as a survey of the differing artistic theories, artist contributions, and educational theories that either contribute to a collaborative model for art education, or hinder its development as a mode for learning in the art classroom.
