Creativity, Culture and Community (Paperback)

Creativity, Culture and Community (Paperback)

In Education and the Arts, Beth Dickson takes a broad look at the policy and theoretical contexts of education and the arts, particularly in the context of Scotland`s innovative Curriculum for Excellence. How do the arts and education interact? What is `arts education` and what it is for?

Tensions exist between process and product. Is arts education intended to produce artists? Is it a means of producing audiences or is it another way to motivate learners? What does `creativity` mean? How do current definitions impact on curricular practice in arts subjects and in subjects not traditionally linked with the arts? In a wide ranging review of the issues and tensions of contemporary policy and practice Education and the Arts provides a distinctive analysis of arts education, its purpose and its rote.

Education and the Arts will appeal to students, teachers and policy-makers concerned with the role of arts education.
