- Integrating the arts: a warm bed for student learning in education in the arts: teaching and learning in the contemporary curriculum
- Sinclair, Christine; Watkins, Marnee; Swainston, Andrew; Jeanneret, Neryl
- Chapters 11 and 12 deal with ways in which the arts can be differently situated in the curriculum. In Chapter 11, the two case studies provide a wide-angled and a close-up view in contrasting examples of arts-based work that bring together a number of arts disciplines. In the Frida case study, Chris Sinclair and Neryl Jeanneret each take an active participant's view of a multi-arts workshop for pre-service primary education based on an arts-rich picture book about Frida Kahio. Sinclair and Jeanneret present the case study as an open-ended invitation to primary educators to consider the use of challenging and rich materials for multi-arts collaborations in their schoois, The second case study re-introduces the readers to Julia Reid and her Year 3 and 4 students. They welcome a large cohort of university students, enrolled in an 'Integrated Arts' subject, into a school-university partnership focused on the creation of an arts festival in which all participants explore a range of artforms in the production of an event for a public audience. The chapter is bookended with a discussion about the principles that inform arts education across disciplines, and a consideration of the question of what can be gained when a number of artforms are brought together in a primary school context.
