- KurzbeschreibungMore than ever before, the arts are shaping and influencing our daily lives through the media and the creative industries. The arts are no longer confined to museums and theatres, but are adding value to our national economies and improving the quality of education. This has implications for arts education. However, unlike other Subjects taught at schools, the arts have rarely made their purpose clear: Why are they taught? What is good arts education? And what are the benefits of teaching creative Subjects or using creative ways to teach?
In 2004 Professor Anne Bamford conducted the first international analysis of arts education research for UNESCO, in partnership with IFACCA and the Australia Council. Comparing data and case studies from more than 60 countries, the book analyses the differences between 'education in the arts' and 'education through the arts'. While appreciating that arts programmes are embedded in their unique social and cultural contexts, Professor Bamford develops internationally comparable standards for quality arts education. In addition, she identifies a number of concrete educational, cultural, and social benefits of arts education.
This definitive work is of major interest to policy-makers, educators and artists.

- LeseprobeChapter 5: Arts education in practice (S. 73-74)
This chapter examines the issues surrounding the enactment of arts education in practice. The qualities of accomplished arts practices become apparent and are most likely to be revealed, at least in part, in the practices within education. The research indicated that while advocacy to include arts as part of education policy has largely been successful, this has not led to wide scale implementation of quality arts programmes at the school level.
This global research &8211; by its very nature &8211; revealed that educational systems are deeply embedded in cultural and nation specific contexts. This is especially the case as regards education in the arts. More than any other subject, the arts (itself a broad category) reflect unique cultural circumstances, and consequently, so does the teaching of the subject.
This chapter examines in detail the implementation and delivery of arts education within schools and outlines the nature of quality arts programmes. As teachers play such a pivotal role in the provision of arts education delivery, special attention is paid to issues of teacher training, including in-service professional development. The arts learning environment
- Arts education tends to be poorly resourced compared to other areas of general education
- Motivated, creative staff can compensate for under resourced programmes to produce quality outcomes
While the problems in arts education go beyond physical constraints within the classroom, the environment in which teachers must administer their arts education programmes compounds the difficulties faced in the implementation of quality art programmes. Teachers are faced with the dilemma of reconciling curriculum decision-making with the realities of contextual factors such as lack of time, space and resources. Despite this, arts educators become realists within the framework of this act of reconciliation.
As Ellis (1954: 88) notes: "Just as a sculptor works in the reality of limestone or walrus-ivory or teak, the art educator has his [sic] realities... these conditions, provoke, prevent, permit or invite him [sic] in his [sic] work." This is certainly evident in the case studies where a lack of resources &8211; while not in itself a desirable state &8211; did not limit the ability to conduct quality arts programmes. Art programmes were able to operate effectively with children sitting on the dirt, in dilapidated old cinemas and where paper was a luxury. Yet the ingenuity of artists and teachers should not be taken as an excuse for under funding the arts within general education
