Socially Engaged Art Education: The Impact of Contemporary Art
MetadataShow full item record
Exposing students to socially engaged art encompasses a meaningful opportunity of connecting progressive education to contemporary arts. This grounded theoretical study explored the impact of contemporary art and street art (JR and Swoon) as a means of promoting social change through aspects of art education. The foundation of the study was structured on analyzed interviews conducted with art educators, personal experience of the researcher, arts-based literature, and art education journals. The author discussed contemporary art as an exemplar for addressing social issues within art teaching and the potential for enhancing student connection to local social concerns. Specifically, the research revealed potential aspects of contemporary art that provide connections between the community and the impact of art in society. The collective study has been researched to show the explicit value of addressing art for social change and the direct impact for art educators and student artists.
