Philosophy of Education, Imagination, and Art Teaching: Implications for Practice

Tyler's Art Education and Community Arts Practices Department is headed to the 2016 National Art Education Association conference in Chicago! A number of professors and students will be presenting, including Dr. Jo-Anna Moore.

Dr. Jo-Anna Moore (Associate Professor Emeritus in Art Education at Tyler School of Art) and Dr. Seymour Simmons (from Winthrop University) will co-present a lecture/discussion session titled: "Philosophy of Education, Imagination, and Art Teaching: Implications for Practice" on Friday, March 18, 2016 from 5-5:50 at the National Art Education Association Conference in Chicago, IL.  The program explores what philosophers of education can teach K-12 art teachers. The great education Philosophers Israel Scheffler and Maxine Greene, both of whom passed away in 2014, celebrated imagination, emotion, and aesthetics in schooling throughout their writings. This interactive session will share a wealth of ideas to help teachers review their purposes and help them clarify and strengthen their beliefs in a challenging time when the arts are often marginalized in schools.
