NAEA's Monthly Mentor for February 2015.

 

I'm allowing myself to follow the flow of my thinking about art education topics so I can't tell you ahead of time what I'll be writing about.

 

Topics floating to the surface include: making art through moving the body in art education classrooms, wasting time in the art room, papercutting, and more....

Follow me on TWITTER  @OGudeArtTeacher 

for a full year of ideas on renewing color curriculum

 

I'm surprised at all the color-related curriculum I've developed over the years as a high school teacher, professor, and community artist. I'm including an image with most posts so, visual learners (such as myself), enjoy.

 

Some color subjects I've touched on:

     Importance of teaching Hue, Value, and CHROMA

     Lots of examples of how to explain and experiment with CHROMA

     Color puzzles

     New and fun ways to explore "how color works" (including making color schemes)

            with cost-free color chips

     Free Form Color Investigation paintings that morph into abstract paintings

             and much more.

 

Looking at my files and folders, looks like I'll be tweeting about color until summer.

Several years ago I was presenting at an NAEA conference and was mildly amused when I learned that the always technonology-forward Craig Roland was live-tweeting important points of my lecture. I remember thinking,

 

Wow, it be great to send art teachers short inspirational and informational messages throughout the year. 

 

I initially thought that I'd tweet about a range of subjects connected to visual arts and media curriculum

 

For the coming school year "Curate curriculum." How does selecting and organizing art, artifacts, ideas and activities create meaning?

 

However, within a few days, I found my most compelling subject when I tweeted:

 

Before making yet another COLOR WHEEL this year, ask students,

"How many times have you done this?" What can you do that is new?

 

I began tweeting about color curriculum for the course I was currently teaching at University of Illinois at Chicago, Chrompotopia (Color World) and then started remembering all sorts of facts, pet peeves, Spiral Workshop projects, color activites, and more and so decided to make Color Curriculum my theme for the 2014-2015 school year. 

 

Looking forward to being in touch.

 

Olivia

Greetings to Fellow Teachers,

 

I hope that summer has found you or is close to finding you whereever you are.

 

I was so honored to receive the Manuel Barkan Award 2014 for the article

New School Art Styles: the Project of Art Education.

Check out the complete text in my ePortfolio chapter Art Education Articles by OMG (link in heading above).

 

The presentation that I made for my Barkan Award Lecture is entitled

Skeptical Assessment Society. 

As promised, I'm posting a version of this online as a number of folks wanted to share this with colleagues as part of the developing conversation about the aims, methods, and ethicss of arts education assessment.

New School Art Styles: the Project of Art Education

 

I'm so pleased to finally publish this article that I've been developing for over 4 years.

 

As art educators who are concerned about the future of art education, I believe that it is important to recognize that sophisticated advocacy for the field of Art Education won't be successful unless we collectively re-invent the curriculum and quality of contemporary art education. There is much that is done in today's Art Education classrooms that is wonderful, smart, fun and inspiring. We must also acknowledge that there is also too much time devoted to teaching skills or perceptual awareness with outmoded, time-consuming methods and that this takes away from the time in which students can develop creative capactities and complex critical thinking while engaging in authentic meaning making art activities.

 

So, Art Teacheres, don't waste your amazing creative capacities in defending past practices. Read this article which is organized as a set of criteria to guide in evaluating your current projects. Keep what is best, jettison what could be better, and invent or borrow and develop new projects. Contribute to NEW SCHOOL ART STYLES. 

 

Have a productive, peaceful and joyous new year.

Spiral Workshop 2012

in the Spiral curriculum style each group curriculum is based on 

uniting a theme and artistic practice(s).

 

Spiral curriculum is planned in thematic sequences. These are generative themes as described in the dialogical pedagogy of Paulo Freire. These themes have individual and collective import. These themes will lead us into inquiries about things that matter to the participants. However, Spiral themes tend to be a bit quirky, more metaphorical than literal. We find that if we begin with a theme or big idea that is too specific or too abstract (such as Environmental Protection or Hope), we can only think of art projects/activities that represent, illustrate, or symbolize what we already know and believe about the subject, rather than activities that move us–emotionally, physically, and conceptually.*

 

Nomad: Contemporary Art Practices

     elaborating fantasies as the "object peoples" wander through Spirallandia
Periphery: Painting

     the interface between self and the world disrupted by wounds, rashes and

     other markings
Silence: Image & Language

     seeing awkward silences, taxonomies of truth and passionate political

     voices
Trace: Experimental Drawing

     artworks in forgotten spaces that leave no trace, except in memory

*excerpted from my essay Cultural Conversations in Spiral Curriculum in

Art and Social Justice Education: Culture As Commons

edited by Therese Quinn, John Ploof, and Lisa Hochtritt

This book is an excellent resource for teachers who interested in connections between innovate pedagogical and artistic strategies. The many artists and artist groups profiled in this book are useful in planning presentations and projects.

Dear Fellow Teachers, 


I'm pleased to let you know about an opportunity at the Corcoran Institute in which I will partner with Corcoran educators to present a workshop on re-envisioning art education curriculum by rooting it in stories about the lives of students. 


I'll be presenting many examples of art education projects that utilize a wide range of aesthetic practices (methods of artistic making) to investigate significant content in the lives of students and their communities. You'll participate in making a wonderful version of a project that I've been developing over the past few years--Down Through Generations. Through this I'll introduce you to a number of methodologies developed at Spiral Workshop, including methods for identifying and gathering personal stories for use in art work, teaching color in fresh and interesting manner, and using modern and postmodern methods to compose narrative art that has clarity and impact. 


Contact the Corcoran for information on registering, costs, etc.

Just returned from NAEA NYC.

 

It is getting more and more difficult to decide what presentations to attend at an NAEA conference. The quality and relevance of the presentations gets better and better every year. 

 

I plan to get condensed versions of presentations on-line within the next couple of weeks. (Most of my presentations include 100 to 300 images so even with considerable file compression, they're too big to post in entirety.)

 

I plan to post:

 

Evocative & Provocative Pedagogy:

Toward a Culture Changing Curriculum

a presentation by Olivia Gude

based on the Curriculum Research of the Spiral Workshop

POSTED!

 

Reflecting on Self-Portrait Projects

my presentation on the panel with jan jagodzinski

Looking forward to seeing folks at the NYC NAEA Conference.

 

I'm honored that one of my presentations has been selected for a

Super Session. 

Saturday, March 3

10am-10:50am (note time change from original schedule)

Sheraton Metropolitan Ballroom West 2nd Floor

Evocative & Provocative Pedagogy:

Toward a Culture-Changing Curriculum

Imagine a form of art education that is a new art form in which sites of school or community-based art education are seen as collaborative art projects, as ongoing experiments in “relational aesthetics.” Quality contemporary art education calls for the expansion of idioms of experiencing and expressing. What cultural productions, artworks, aesthetic practices, and theoretical tools eclected from a wide variety of sources are needed to understand, experience, enjoy, trouble, investigate, participate, and interrogate compelling content in contemporary life? This presentation will share examples of student art projects in traditional and  “non-traditional media”--proposals, performances, zines, flyers, bricolage clothes, comix, installations, and more. The objective is to investigate individual experience within the context of the social, examining the blurred boundaries between self and others, and demonstrating how cultural action can lead to the transformation of overly restrictive social structures into ones which provide empowering and enabling conditions. 

 

 

I'm excited to also be presenting a session with my friend, jan jadodzinski.

Thursday, March 1

11-11:50am

Hilton Mercury Ballroom 3rd Floor

Questions of Identity in Art Education:

Reflection, Reflexion, RefleXion 

Interrogate assumptions in conventional art curriculum about being a “unique” individual and consider Spiral-style art projects through which students investigate the social construction of  (and possiblity of re-constructing) oneself.

 

 

More panels and joint presentations will be listed soon.

Cute Degenerate Apparitions:

Painting at Spiral Workshop

Olivia Gude

Concept-rich theme-based curriculum explores how metaphors make meaning while utilizing innovative methodologies of teaching color mixing, direct drawing with paint, creating form with value, expressionistic brushwork, postmodern aesthetic strategies, and more. 

 

We’ll explore several years of Spiral curricula–Bad and Beautiful Painting, Chromophobia: Painting in a Culture of Fear, Painting: So Cute & Creepy, Apparitions: Painting, and (De)Generate: Painting.

 

Teachers will be introduced to the theoretical and practical aspects of Spiral painting curriculum–paint distribution, palette layout, techniques of realist painting, cultivating an appreciation of non-representational painting, constructing theme worksheets to identify personally meaningful content, and contemporary compositional strategies as well as methods for choosing and stimulating discussion about of a wide range of painting and other artworks.

 

The (De)Generate group studied expressionist artmaking practices—early German Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism and Neo-Expressionist styles. Introduced to the stigmatization of expressionist art as “degenerate” under the Nazi regime, Spiral youth artists questioned why governments sometimes feel threatened by avant-garde art.
