  • Volume 34 Issue 2 - Understanding others: Asian students' perspectives on
           visual arts education in New Zealand
    • Abstract: Smith, Jill
      This paper reports on a research project conducted with Asian pre-service students who trained to be secondary school visual arts teachers between 2001 and 2010. The research was framed within the context of student and art teacher demographics in New Zealand secondary schools, national curriculum, and earlier research findings (Smith, 2007). In this study I sought participants' perspectives on their visual arts experiences at secondary schools, tertiary art institutions, pre-service teacher education, and secondary school teaching. The findings provide insights that are important for art teachers, teacher educators, curriculum developers and policy makers in nations with culturally diverse students, including those of Asian ethnicity.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Towards foundations for a socially critical art
           education (8th annual Leon Jackman memorial lecture)
    • Abstract: Duncum, Paul
      Significant recent developments in Australian art education have moved away from a consideration of the aesthetic value of fine art products to a broad sociological conception of the visual arts which includes folk and popular arts. Many art educators assume a socially functionalist approach which celebrates cultural diversity and attempts to describe the function of cultural artifacts, sometimes in terms of lived experience. While acknowledging the importance of these developments, the author adopts the view that cultural production is part of an unjust society in ferment and is a site for ideological struggle. The view advanced is that to be true to its subject, art education must adopt a socially critical position. Drawing upon the culturalist tendency within English Cultural Studies possible theoretical foundations for a socially critical art education are explored. These include: social structure is as important as lived experience; society is comprised of competing interests and is structured in dominance; cultural production is constitutive of social reality; basic to human action is agency, constraint and struggle; and explicitly engaged judgement is essential to the development of a more democratic society.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Responding 30 years later to the 8th annual leon
           Jackman memorial lecture
    • Abstract: Duncum, Paul
      I recall delivering this paper with the aid of an Overhead Projector that showed the headings and main points. There were no pictures. This was years before slide shows were replaced by PowerPoint, years before the Internet took hold, decades before Web 2.0 interconnectedness, and today's Big Data analytics that trawl and aggregate millions of images in seconds. Yet it is not only the technology that has changed. Rereading the paper after 30 years I was at first struck by how many of the various contexts informing the paper no longer apply.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Regional jewel: New England Regional Art Museum
           (NERAM) and the Howard Hinton collection
    • Abstract: Kerby, Martin; Baguley, Margaret
      If Michaela Boland is correct in her assertion that "At their best, local art galleries reflect the region back to itself" (Boland, 2012), the New England Regional Art Museum (NERAM) in Armidale deserves to be ranked among the best in Australia. The recent opening of its new exhibition Hinton: Treasures of Australian art is the culmination of two decades of philanthropy on the part of the art patron Howard Hinton OBE (1867-1948). The artists Arthur Streeton (1867-1943) and Norman Lindsay (1879-1969) placed Hinton alongside Alfred Felton (1831-1904), David Scott Mitchell (1836-1907) and Sir Baldwin Spencer (1860-1929), as one of the greatest benefactors of the arts in Australian history (Elphick, 2018). At a broader level, however, the collection also symbolises the importance of art education, particularly in regional areas, through its connection with the Armidale Teachers' College (1928-1971), then the Armidale College of Advanced Education (ACAE) (1971-1989), which amalgamated with the University of New England (UNE) (1989-2008), and the city that was once touted as the capital of a possible Australian state of 'New England'.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Exploring the arts and literacy in curriculum: A
           cross-cultural comparison of Australia, Canada and France
    • Abstract: Barton, Georgina; Lemieux, Amelie; Chabanne, Jean-Charles
      This paper is a cross-cultural comparative study of how the arts and literacy are represented within school curricula in Australia, Canada and France. The relationship between the arts and literacy within these contexts is widely considered to be tenuous, a situation which will be explored by first investigating how literacy has impacted on the arts, and second, establishing a case for arts literacies to be considered unique. A content analysis of the arts and literacy in each of the national curricula and current educational policies is then conducted. Implications of these findings for classroom practice are then shared.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Boundary objects in the visual art-science learning
           space
    • Abstract: Grushka, Kathryn; Clement, Neville; Chand, Ari; Lawry, Miranda; Devine, Andy
      Innovation and trans-disciplinary knowledge is now coupled with creativity and linked directly to career futures that prioritise STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Science). Concurrently, educators are calling for a move beyond previously defined disciplinary or epistemic boundaries. As education must now embrace epistemological fluency (Markauskaite and Goodyear, 2017) the visual arts are well placed to contribute to this learning. This article explores the concept of the 'boundary object' and defines it within an art-science learning context. This context reveals how a creative and aesthetic semiotic interchange between visual art and science can be realised. It describes a research project that specifically explored visual cognition and learning in the visual art domain. The contribution of visual art learning to trans-disciplinary learning is examined through a case study that focuses on visual arts learning in the art-science space.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Mapping the nomadic journey of becoming in digital
           portfolios: Digital way finding in art education
    • Abstract: Coleman, Kate
      Reflective processes and practices within the curation of a digital portfolio create openings for developing as an artist through critical autoethnographic practice/s. This ongoing practice of digital autoethnographic research unlocks the space for connections to be drawn rhizomatically between artefacts, evidence of practice and the selves thereby bringing the artist and their material worlds closer. This paper explores my moments of becoming in a digital a/r/tographic digital portfolio submitted as thesis in my doctoral studies, and the implications for both artist-students and artist-teacher candidates. Working methodologically in digital portfolios through a/r/tography and critical autoethnography as method has opened my practices and pedagogies in initial teacher education through digital wayfinding.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Artist teacher cognition: Connecting 'self' with
           'other'
    • Abstract: Heaton, Rebecca
      In this visual essay I story a doctoral journey exploring cognitive conception in artist teacher practice. Underpinned by autoethnographic research, I communicate how an understanding of cognition can be understood and developed by an artist- teacher academic working with a cohort of pre-service artist teachers. The visuals embedded in this essay draw relationships between the cognitive conceptions of self and other to reveal i) the importance of cognition to art education ii) factors which influence cognitive conception and iii) the value of cognition as a transformational practice. The use of personal, cultural and theoretical lenses in this essay provide important insights to the finding that engagement with cognition in artist teacher practice can assist in ensuring art education remains valued, timely and progressive.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Instagram and art gallery visitors: Aesthetic
           experience, space, sharing and implications for educators
    • Abstract: Suess, Adam
      Instagram is one of the world's most popular social media applications. For art galleries it is an important tool for promotion, marketing, interaction, participation and the enhancing of the visitor experience. For arts educators it is an opportunity to broaden the participation of people wanting to learn through art, and to consider how Instagram may contribute to an art gallery based learning program. There is limited research about the use of Instagram by visitors to an art gallery and the role it plays in their experience. This article is drawn from a research study into the use of Instagram by visitors to the Gerhard Richter exhibition at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (14 October 2017 - 4 February 2018). The research project, which was informed by spatial theory, found that the use of Instagram at the gallery engaged visitors in a manner that transcended the physical space and extended their aesthetic experience. This finding is significant for arts educators seeking to engage students through social media during visits to art exhibitions.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Arts belong in the classroom: Empowering teachers in
           arts-based learning
    • Abstract: Macdonald, Jacqueline; Tualaulelei, Eseta
      Learning in and through the arts is central to fostering young learners' creativity. This article explores the perceived barriers to quality arts-based learning for children and potential strategies for overcoming them. It describes an action research collaboration with two Queensland based early years educators, and explores how this collaboration facilitated changes to their arts based pedagogical approaches. We argue that with sufficient support, educators can act as change agents by leading arts-based learning in a manner that promotes creativity.

    • Abstract: McCarthy, Naomi
      This paper will investigate the relevance, value, and detail of a variety of pedagogic practices aimed at increasing learning for children engaged in art appreciation. Artworks provide us with the opportunity to explore the world through an intimate encounter with a sensibility, an intellect and a history other than our own. The richness of this encounter has the potential to foster our curiosity and deepen our understanding of the world and humanity's place within it. The foundational premise of this paper is that by empowering children through their early and sustained engagement with visual arts we are teaching towards a more connected and just society (UNESCO, 1999). The game approach is an attitude of 'gameness' that is characterised by an intention to eagerly and intrepidly explore an artwork. An adult, with this same gameness of approach, is an important partner in this endeavour, as artworks are complex and often include subjects and themes that need to be intelligently translated to bring them into the frame of reference of children's lived experiences.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Farewell to Saigon by Tranh Van Tuan
    • Abstract: O'Toole, John
      As a drama teacher, I often use visual artworks, especially paintings, to explore two of the key elements of drama - 'Time and Narrative'. So many paintings show a particular dramatic moment of a story, frozen in time, and still embodying the artist's emotions and point of view. So it is with Farewell to Saigon - and for me all the more so as I know the painter and his own quite extraordinary and moving back-story, that imbues the painting with so many of the emotions and quite a lot of the story.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Light fuse and stand well back: A reflection on the
           role of the creative arts in the Australian academy
    • Abstract: Meyrick, Julian
      This article is drawn from a lecture recently presented at Griffith University which examines the Australian higher education sector and its rapid transition from a traditional view of education to one which is increasingly affected by government funding and subsequent intervention. The amalgamation of the creative arts from small conservatorium-style academies to the broader university system has not been met with a concomitant desire to fully appreciate and value their unique contribution to the academy. The author argues that creative arts research requires understanding and to date little consideration has been given as to how it can be accommodated within existing university structures. Universities therefore need to provide the creative arts time to resolve issues around their intellectual contribution and to value the meaning they ultimately give to our lives.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Developing creative ecologies in schools: Assessing
           creativity in schools
    • Abstract: de Bruin, Leon; Harris, Anne M
      Creativity has a significant role to play in how educational praxis evolves to meet the demands of future workforces and their lifelong learning. There now exists an abundance of discourse activity pertaining to creativity in education that stress nurturing it as an essential yet complex and multifaceted aspect of education. The need to recalibrate creativity in education beyond simplistic notions of accommodating creative industries and domain-centred thinking is stimulated by more holistic and ecologically responsible and responsive organisational and pedagogical practices. This article details findings from a three-year international study of creativity in Australian, Singaporean, American and Canadian secondary schools. A Whole School Creativity Audit that considers school policies, teacher pedagogies, the nurturing of student and teacher practices and processes for creativity, school environments and local/global creative partnerships is posited. Whole-school engagement in cultivating united, interconnected understandings and practicalities, and interdisciplinarity that fosters 'wise creativity' as a holistic ecological approach in schools is identified as a crucial component of a modern education.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - The museum diorama: Caught between art and history
    • Abstract: Kerby, Martin; MacDonald, Abbey; McDonald, Janet; Baguley, Margaret
      Perhaps more than any other type of museum display, dioramas, particularly those in military museums, are expected to be all things to all people. To justify their role as an explanatory tool they must be 'accurate' representations of history, yet to survive in the modern museum environment they must also be artefacts or artworks in their own right, flexible enough to adjust to changing tastes and perceptions. Diorama artists are constrained, however, by three seemingly incompatible approaches: representing a single moment in a complex event, compressing timelines in order to show multiple 'moments', and the creation of a hypothetical, generic representation of 'battle'. The issue of scale is also problematic, for the more a diorama shows of a battle, the less it is able to communicate the individual human experience of conflict. To engage with individual trauma in this manner is nevertheless problematic given that the great battles of history are traditionally linked to national achievement, yet the modern conception of war is increasingly one that characterises it as a destroyer of civilisations rather than a stepping stone in the creation of the nation state. This article explores how The Royal Armouries (Leeds, UK), The Royal Green Jackets (Rifles) Museum (Winchester, UK) and the Australian War Memorial (Canberra, Australia), have grappled with these issues, ones which position dioramas uneasily between art and history.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Transforming maternal regionalism through the
           mother-artist model (MAM)
    • Abstract: Clark, Linda; Batorowicz, Beata; Baguley, Margaret
      As a regional contemporary artist, and also a mother, I have often had to subsume one role over the other depending on the context. My recent tertiary studies have allowed me to explore the critical synergies between the two roles and in the process to propose, develop and refine my Mother-Artist Model (MAM). By blurring art and life, the model draws on mothering attributes of adaptability and resilience and makes visible the complex stories of the mother-child relationship. This paper explores the development of this process and the potential within the MAM to be used as an adaptive creative practice strategy for other women artists to overcome the challenges of maternal periphery through collective sharing and dialogue.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Good teachers grow: Disrupting negative depictions of
           teachers through relational a/r/tographic inquiry
    • Abstract: MacDonald, Abbey; Cruickshank, Vaughan
      This article explores the potential impact of expressions of gratitude to and for our teachers on teacher retention and resilience. It is widely acknowledged in educational circles that upwards of forty percent of Australian teachers leave the profession within the first five years. With teachers struggling under the pressures of increased social and political scrutiny and associated increases in societal and workplace expectations, teacher burnout and attrition remains a substantial issue in Australia. Despite the scholarly research that has identified the high levels of teacher attrition, the difficulties of the teaching profession go largely unacknowledged by a public who see media commentary around teacher work and lives dominated by references to short hours and long holidays. In addition, this narrative is often dismissive of the positive influence of good teaching and dedicated teachers.

      Using the case study of a recently retired career teacher known to the researchers, this article identifies the potential impact on teacher resilience and retention of a disruption of the negative public discourses around the work and lives of teachers. In doing so, we illustrate the need to balance dominant negative discourses with ones that acknowledge and celebrate the positive impact of teachers in the lives of their colleagues, students and the wider community. The authors employ an a/r/tographic inquiry that uses relational art inquiry tools to highlight the attributes of resilient teachers, and how teacher resilience and in turn retention might be cultivated through expressions of community gratitude. In doing so, we argue that when teachers feel valued and are cognisant of the gratitude felt by students, staff and parents, their professional resilience is bolstered and the likelihood of attrition reduced.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Critical images, critical voices: The artwork of
           vernon ah kee
    • Abstract: Castro, Jason; Batorowicz, Beata
      This paper explores the 'critical image' in contemporary art and its role in Australian art education through the lens of two tertiary artists and arts educators. Critical images are contextualised as dialogically based, interrupting prevailing discourses which create opportunities for new dialogues located in social, historical or cultural debates (Castro, 2017). As these debates are evident in the work itself, this paper asserts that critical images provoke viewer autonomy in critical thinking, and therefore 'educate' audiences. The critical image is explored in this paper through the art of Australian artist Vernon Ah Kee.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - To tread lightly: Teaching aboriginal and torres
           strait islander art and representation in a regional university
    • Abstract: Heckenberg, Robyn
      My heritage is Wiradjuri, a Central New South Wales nation with a powerful connection to Lake Cargelligo and a number of inland rivers. Our old ties with the river have facilitated strong ties with tribes up and down the rivers which have extended as far as South Australia. In addition, Wiradjuri has strong familial associations with Yorta Yorta, Gamillaroi and historically significant ties to neighbouring nations, such as the Wonnarua with whom we collaborated during the 1826 uprising against the British (Miller, 1995). Our broad associations also included ceremonial and marriage arrangements with peoples much further afield, such as Aboriginal people who shared Mount Bogong in the Victorian Alps. Cultural ties and reciprocity arrangements extended as far as Southern Queensland and during the Bunya Pine ceremonial cycle, there were huge gatherings of people, including Wiradjuri, who travelled significant distances to share food. This is the present location of the College of Indigenous Studies, Education and Research (CISER) at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). It is at this university that I now plan and implement innovative art theory that provides a narrative of Indigenous art in the contexts of human rights, land rights, intellectual property rights, politics and international networks. In this way cultural exchange continues between myself as Wiradjuri and Aboriginal communities in Southern Queensland in an unbroken chain which honours both past and present associations.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Generation art: An educational program to engage
           audiences with art
    • Abstract: Mitchell, Donna Mathewson
      This article outlines an innovative education program piloted at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery in 2016. Generation Art involved a series of after school workshops for Year 10 students focused on cultural engagement and learning in the art gallery. The program culminated in the creation of digital stories re-visioning the art gallery and its collection from a youth perspective. These resources have been shared publicly on the gallery website and in a public screening. Action research was undertaken to document and evaluate the program and the underpinning partnership model. In this article, the program and research is outlined to illustrate its significance in engaging youth audiences with art and art galleries.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - The parliament house embroidery: A creative
           collaboration
    • Abstract: Baguley, Margaret; Kerby, Martin C
      The Parliament House Embroidery (PHE) was the result of an eight year collaboration between the South Australian artist Kay Lawrence and each Australian state and territory embroidery guild. Conceived as an artistic commemoration of Australia's Bicentenary and the opening of the new Parliament House in Canberra on 9 May 1988, the PHE is notable as both a key commissioned work and the only gift accepted by the Parliament House Construction Authority's Art Advisory Committee. Drawing from a case study this paper explores issues related to interpretation, leadership, and authorship that arose during this extended collaboration. As the PHE celebrates its thirtieth anniversary in 2018, this is a timely investigation of the process that led to the creation of this artwork.
