  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Interpreting the Anzac legacy: Reflexive accounts of
           artistic practice
    • Abstract: Kerby, Martin; Baguley, Margaret; Tuppurainen-Mason, Eloise
      This paper will explore the journey of two visual Artists and a Project Manager working with a secondary school on two government funded projects commemorating the Anzac legacy. The process of conceptual development, creation and negotiation will be investigated within the context of the career stages of each participant. The complexities of working with the school community whilst also maintaining the integrity of the participants' respective vision will further contextualise this discussion.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Developing employability and professional identity
           through visual narratives
    • Abstract: Bennett, Dawn
      Enhancing employability for higher education arts graduates requires collaborative action on three fronts: specificity in the measurement and reporting of graduate outcomes; advocacy to re-align stakeholder conceptions of graduate work and employability; and learner engagement in career-related thinking and action. This paper reports a career-related engagement in which students and educators created visual narratives with text-based captions in answer to the question, "What is a musician?" Similarities and differences in student-educator thinking highlight the potential for students to generate broad career previews through in-class engagement. Visual methodologies emerge as a powerful strategy for the promotion of career-oriented thinking and reflection.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Intercultural arts-based research inquiry: First marks
           of the reformer's brush
    • Abstract: Wade-Leeuwen, Bronwen
      The conflict education situation in Australian government schools presents an image of a traditional system detached from contemporary global trends in arts education. Recent significant reforms in Australian education, particularly with the introduction of the first national Australian curriculum (ACARA, 2014), align strongly with a global focus on developing twenty-first century critical and creative skills. Today, most arts educators strive to foster these skills in their classrooms; yet evidence shows they often lack the confidence and knowledge to foster that creativity and imagination. Additionally, primary arts instruction in these schools is mandated to four hours a week; yet professional development in teacher education seldom provides the necessary specialised knowledge, skills and experience to teach the arts effectively.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Home is where the art is: Using design-based research
           to support arts engagement in Australian home education
    • Abstract: Burke, Katie
      Home education is increasingly recognised in Australia as a legitimate educational option. Given the significance of the Arts as an integral component of a quality holistic education, developing insight into how this rapidly growing educational sector is engaging with the Arts is a timely issue. This paper explores a doctoral project which is focusing on understanding and supporting arts practices in Australia's home education community. Motivated by a desire for research to have a beneficial impact, the researcher is working with home educators to develop an arts website and communication space that responds to the needs of home educators and is underpinned by the principles of quality arts education.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Student art exhibitions - a tool for building cohesion
           and cultural sustainability
    • Abstract: Smith, Anne
      Student art exhibitions provide a voice for the ideas of young people and a critical space for dialogue. They also have the potential to connect communities and provide complex yet accessible opportunities for learning. Over the course of the past decade, Independent Schools Victoria has displayed in excess of 2500 student artworks. It is a not for profit membership organisation representing non-government schools of different faiths, cultures and philosophies in the state of Victoria, Australia. This paper will provide an overview of the organisation's history of exhibition activity and proven record of building engagement, cohesion and cultural sustainability that has ultimately benefitted a wide variety of stakeholders.

  • Volume 37 Issue 2 - Bending the twig: Indigenous perspectives in tertiary
           art and design
    • Abstract: Snepvangers, Kim
      This research traverses the "cultural interface" (Nakata, 2004) from the perspective of a non-Indigenous art educator in order to propose a re-thinking of Indigenous Perspectives in the context of tertiary art and design education. It focuses on extending the capacity of educators to engage with contested areas of knowledge and ultimately to work with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students in creative fields of practice. The research has been framed around textual and visual metaphors, in particular the metaphor of "Bending the Twig", an educational practice which emerged in interviews conducted in 2013 and 2014 with Indigenous Elder, Artist and Educator, Vic Chapman. As the first Indigenous Principal in a Primary School in New South Wales Chapman's educational practices, particularly his 'bending of the twig' are particularly interesting (Savage, 2015). Three encounters selected from educational moments in Vic Chapman's professional life show how he creatively and flexibly negotiates contested space and enculturates Indigenous Knowledge and perspectives with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

  • Volume 37 Issue 1 - John Dewey and Reggio Emilia: Worlds apart - one
    • Abstract: Lindsay, Gai
      The Reggio Emilia educational project is internationally renowned for an early childhood pedagogy that centralises visual arts as a graphic language within multi-disciplinary projects. Loris Malaguzzi, the first director of the Italian project, is credited for introducing ateliers (art studios), as well as an atelierista (visual arts specialist) within each preschool. This paper suggests that Malaguzzi's conception of the atelier as a place for art focused, hands-on collaborative research with children may have been inspired by John Dewey's (1900) discussions about art laboratories as a unifying force for democratic and transformative education. Contemporary educators are invited to reflect on their own visual arts practice in light of the shared vision of these two educational philosophers.

  • Volume 37 Issue 1 - From the classrooms of Stanford to the Alleys of
           Amsterdam: Elliot Eisner as pedagogue
    • Abstract: Barone, Tom
      This paper was originally published as the first chapter of 'Aesthetics, Politics, and Educational Inquiry: Essays and Examples' by Tom Barone (New York: Peter Lang) in 1996. This book remains a seminal text in the development and growth of arts-based research and art education, and this chapter is a delightful wander through the streets of Amsterdam with Elliot Eisner, Tom's one time mentor, lifelong friend and esteemed colleague. It tells of experience and introspection, of teaching and learning and of the personal and professional perspectives of two highly influential scholars. It is reprinted here with permission in its original form.

  • Volume 37 Issue 1 - Beyond the school gate: A study of arts engagement and
           employment in post-secondary school years
    • Abstract: Alter, Frances
      Creative industries are key drivers of modern economies; however, analysis has traditionally advanced a market-failure model of arts and culture (Potts, 2012). A negative socio-economic paradigm can have an adverse effect on post-secondary school students' career choices and continued engagement in the arts. This article reports on the findings from the first stage of a longitudinal study that tracks the life trajectories of a group of young people who at some time in their school years were winners and finalists in a university funded art prize. The participants, now in the early stages of their tertiary studies and careers, were surveyed in order to learn whether they had continued to engage in visual arts practice, continued on to further training in the arts or work in creative occupations. Participants in this study offered insights into their motivations to pursue arts-based careers as well as their understanding of the challenges that face those who desire a career in the Arts.

  • Volume 37 Issue 1 - Considering a methodology to provoke respectful
           conversations about creativity with arts educators
    • Abstract: Selkrig, Mark; Bottrell, Christine
      While the space remains fragile for arts learning in school settings, the need for creativity and creative learning is emphasised in curriculum documents. Alongside this tension, what creative learning and teaching means continues to be unclear for many educators. In this paper we report on an innovative methodology developed and implemented for a project to explore connected understandings of creativity and creative learning amongst arts educators. The methodology, while succinct and efficient, also provided abundant, meaningful data. It also offered various ways for participants to engage in collegial discussions that provoked deep questions and thoughtful conversations about creativity and arts learning.

  • Volume 37 Issue 1 - Transformative learning: Ecologies of practice in art
           and design education
    • Abstract: Snepvangers, Kim; Bannon, Robyn
      This research paper focuses on the quality of engagement of Preservice Art and Design Educators (PADE) with knowledge and transformative learning in tertiary art and design curriculum and field-based experience. The research scaffolds participant knowledge as an oral narrative from research interview data supported by a strong practical focus on learning from experiences gained in the field. This research project aimed to come to an understanding of how the specific potential of professional industry experience in the final year worked to generate teacher case-based knowledge. Case studies were selected as an appropriate methodology to report on research interview data conducted with graduates given their recent experience with changing variables of being, firstly, a student and subsequent engagement with a profession. The case selected for analysis explored the teaching and learning practices undertaken during a professional experience semester-long internship in a western Sydney school. Through a close study and evaluation of a pre-service art and design teacher's experience of teaching a Stage 5 Visual Arts unit of work, the discussion reveals assumptions and perceptions about learning. This kind of evaluative and reflective practice-led research has the capacity to deepen understanding of personal teaching practices and inform tertiary teacher education. The importance of teachers' case-based wisdom of practice and interconnectedness of learning within localised, specialist contexts in visual arts is highlighted as a marker of quality engagement with knowledge. Ecology is applied as an organising construct for the research, emphasising a personal approach to interconnection for planning curriculum projects whilst learning in the domain of art and design. Publishing impact and quality data concerning the transformative potential of art and design education is significant within neo-liberal educational agendas in Australia.

  • Volume 36 Issue 2 - Linking research and pedagogy in teacher education:
           Empowering pre-service Asian art teachers to promote a stronger presence
           in secondary schools
    • Abstract: Smith, Jill
      This paper is contextualised within a specialist pre-service secondary art teacher education course in New Zealand. It reports on how research findings have motivated a pedagogical response to the absence of an Asian dimension in art programs in secondary schools, despite the increasing presence of students of Asian ethnicities. The findings prompted the development of a pedagogical framework of sequential steps, using five theoretically-informed strategies. The aim is to empower Asian pre-service art teachers to engage in their own culture(s) so that they can promote a stronger Asian presence, given the emphasis on bicultural approaches in art education. Their voices, and the visual examples of their work, illustrate how the cumulative effects of the five-step framework are helping to empower them to assert their presence and identities during pre-service course preparation and in the 'real world' of the classroom.

  • Volume 36 Issue 2 - Echoes of a C/a/r/tography: Mapping the practicum
           experiences of pre-service visual arts teachers in the 'visual echoes
    • Abstract: Rousell, David; Cutcher, Alexandra
      This paper describes a collaborative arts-based research project entitled 'Visual Echoes' that explored the practicum experiences of pre-service Visual Arts teachers. Developing from the methodology of a/r/tography, this inquiry employed visual mapping as an approach to performing (rather than representing) the interrelationships between art, teaching and research. The preservice teachers drew upon their individual and collective practicum experiences to generate visual reflections, which were then translated into two large-scale paintings through a series of collaborative art practices. The interventions of the instructors allowed for a participatory process to be improvised, generating a multi-layered and authentically collaborative learning experience for all involved, together with the resolved and unresolved visual documentations. This artistic process complemented the spontaneous creation of social networks of interaction and discourse, which were both hidden and revealed in the material formations of the artefacts. In this paper, an analysis of the research process and evidence is framed through the methodology of a/r/ tography, contemporary art practices associated with cartography, and the conceptualisations of affect and the map found in the work of Deleuze and Guattari. We integrate these three theoretical and practical sources within our own methodology of c/a/r/tography, as developed over the course of the 'Visual Echoes' project. This approach has enabled us to map onto the transversal movements of affect and subjectivity as they have become increasingly entangled within a palimpsest of artefacts, images and texts.

  • Volume 36 Issue 2 - Complementary collaborations: Teachers and researchers
           co-developing best practices in art education
    • Abstract: Knight, Linda
      Australia is currently experiencing a huge cultural shift as it moves from a State-based curriculum, to a national education system. The Australian State-based bodies that currently manage teacher registration, teacher education course accreditation, curriculum frameworks and syllabi are often complex organisations that hold conflicting ideologies about education and teaching. The development of a centralised system, complete with a single accreditation body and a national curriculum can be seen as a reaction to this complexity. At the time of writing, the Australian Curriculum is being rolled out in staggered phases across the states and territories of Australia. Phase one has been implemented, introducing English, Mathematics, History and Science. Subsequent phases (Humanities and Social Sciences, the Arts, Technologies, Health and Physical Education, Languages, and year 9-10 work studies) are intended to follow.

  • Volume 36 Issue 2 - Visual learning and pre-service teachers in the
           post-literate age
    • Abstract: Grushka, Kathryn; Donnelly, Debra; Goodlad, Nicole
      In the global knowledge economy, learners are increasingly encountering digital new media in and out of the classroom. Issues now arise about how education intersects with visual new media technologies, multimodal learning and visual popular culture. This paper reports the findings of a survey of pre-service teachers, from both primary and secondary areas, that explored their visual knowledge, skills and beliefs. These survey findings are examined through the Model of Studio Pedagogy for Visual World Learning (Grushka and Donnelly, in press), a framework that emerged from an interdisciplinary visual inquiry course and drew attention to the current limited research regarding pre-service teachers' knowledge and use of the image in digital learning environments. The paper raises the issues and challenges for visual arts-based inquiry as a relevant pedagogy in pre-service teacher training and explores the avenues for engaging with visual inquiry in integrated learning contexts.

Through images and text we tell the story of how we came together as a virtual and embodied creative community. Using the flower as a provocation to undertake visual arts explorations that extended into drama, dance, music and arts-based performances, the students encountered issues in early childhood arts education through metaphor and metonym. Through the lens of artist/s, researcher/s and teacher/s this discussion reflects on the ways this approach enabled being, becoming and belonging in early childhood creative arts education.

  • Volume 36 Issue 2 - The formation of the Australian arts education
           practice and research special interest group (AEPR SIG)
    • Abstract: Baguley, Margaret; Barton, Georgina; MacDonald, Abbey
      The Arts Education Practice and Research (AEPR SIG) is a special interest group in the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE). AARE is a national organisation for researchers and educators and plays a critical role in supporting and strengthening major research partnerships and networks for the Australian educational research community. The AEPR SIG is a relatively new group within AARE and reflects the commitment of teacher educators working in the arts to strengthen their voice at the national/international level. This paper provides an overview, through narratives from the three co-convenors, of the AEPR SIG's purpose, their collaborative approach, and the overall impact it has made since its establishment in 2011 and thus benchmarks its development to date.

  • Volume 36 Issue 1 - How is the domain of the visual arts represented in
           years 7-10 in state curriculum frameworks in Victoria, Queensland and New
           South Wales?
    • Abstract: Thomas, Kerry
      While there is current obsession with claims about natural entitlement Arts education, little research about Visual Arts as a domain has been reported recently. This paper seeks to redress this issue in a modest way. It takes three current curriculum frameworks in the Arts/Visual Arts in Years 7-10 from Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales (NSW) and subjects them to a semantic analysis. Findings reveal there is considerable variation in what constitutes the domain. This ranges from a means to achieve creative expression mediated by formalism in the Arts to the domain being represented as a relational network. These differences are brought to the struggle for the identity of Visual Arts in the Australian Curriculum.

  • Volume 36 Issue 1 - Drawing conclusions: What purpose do children's
           drawings serve?
    • Abstract: Adoniou, Misty
      Drawing and writing have been a part of primary classrooms for decades, but have they been used in mutually informing and beneficial ways or, has drawing been misunderstood and under utilised in the primary school classroom? As well as serving its own important learning purposes, drawing can enhance learning in other curriculum areas. This article focuses in particular upon the ways in which drawing can support the development of writing skills and present a framework for analysing purpose in children's drawings.

  • Volume 36 Issue 1 - Drawing on experience: The challenges that generalist
           teachers face in delivering visual arts effectively in primary school
    • Abstract: Cutcher, Alexandra
      This paper examines contemporary challenges in providing relevant and quality Visual Arts education in the Primary school setting in Australia. To that end, implications and issues surrounding an effective Visual Arts education delivered by generalist teachers are discussed. Based upon the growing field of research, it is also argued that a robust Arts education is crucial for 21st century learners, never before more vital than in the current economic, technological and social milieux. It is suggested that in the current climate of high-stakes testing and standardisation, an education in the Arts and through the Arts can reform education in ways that attend to the needs of our children as well as to the prevailing political demands regarding creativity and innovation.

  • Volume 36 Issue 1 - The experience of teaching tertiary visual arts
           education in a purely online learning environment
    • Abstract: Alter, Frances
      One of the major new developments in higher education is the growth of virtual universities and eLearning. While this development has definite practical benefits, such as, freedom from constraints of time and geography, there are also disparities that arise between real world and virtual technology-led teaching. Tertiary Visual Arts educators face significant challenges in this new learning environment because removing face-to-face interaction has implications for creating spaces where pre-service teachers can develop their Visual Arts practice and knowledge of pedagogies. This paper describes the experiences of a tertiary Visual Arts education academic and presents findings from a small scale study that investigated the attitudes of a group of tertiary students, enrolled in a primary undergraduate unit, towards e-learning.

  • Volume 36 Issue 1 - Investigating the personal experiences and
           self-efficacy of western Australian primary pre-service teachers in the
           visual arts
    • Abstract: Morris, Julia E; Lummis, Geoff W
      The Visual Arts are essential to interpreting culture and introduction to the Visual Arts often occurs within primary school. A mixed methods study was undertaken at a Western Australian university across the Arts subjects: dance, drama, media Arts, music and Visual Arts. This paper reports the quantitative findings of the Visual Arts section of the investigation, examining students' prior Visual Arts experiences and their self-efficacy to deliver the Visual Arts on graduating their degree. The research underscores the importance of positive Visual Arts experiences to build self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation among pre-service primary teachers.
