Tensions of Art-Based Practice in Educational Settings: Research and Learning in the Visual Arts

Clubroom, CCA Glasgow, 26th November 2010, 6.30pm

Dr Richard Siegesmund is Associate Professor of Art Education at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia, Athens.

One focus of his scholarly inquiry is arts-based research in the social sciences. He also writes on assessment of learning in visual arts practice. He co-edited Arts-Based Research in Education: Foundations for Practice (Routledge). His most recent publication is the book chapter, "Aesthetics as a curriculum of care and responsible choice", in Essays on aesthetic education for the 21st century (Sense). He also serves as president of Integrative Teaching International (, a non-profit that critically reexamines the first year training of art+design college/university students as visual and social practices increasingly intersect. He completed his doctoral studies at Stanford University under the direction of Elliot Eisner. In 2003, his published research on arts-based assessment of student learning received the Manuel Barkan Memorial Award from the National Art Education Association. He currently is a visiting Fulbright Scholar to the Education Faculty of the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland.
