Re/Presenting Artful Pedagogy: Relational Aesthetics in Early Childhood Contemporary Art Experiences

2013, MA, Kent State University, College of the Arts / School of Art.
Contemporary art, specifically as it relates to relational aesthetics, has the potential to blend with pedagogy and point to new directions for art education. This study aimed to reveal the relational moments, specifically conversations, collaborative art making and interactions of early learners with a visiting art museum educator. Through a literature review, the study explored connections of relational aesthetics with shifting roles within the classroom, new forms of curriculum, and experience as art. A hybrid method of a/r/tography and action research was utilized to re/present extensive data that revealed a connection between relational aesthetics and pedagogy. The research was concluded with further questions for new directions in art education and how contemporary art and artful pedagogy may play a significant role.
