dc.description.abstractThis Visual Ethnographic Research study examines secondary students’ experiences with mixed media art and the ways in which their creative processes and imaginations are fostered and freedom is embraced through their art making. This study focuses on the overall experiences of students’ mixed media art making, the ways in which these experiences promote their creative processes, as well as the ways in which the context of the classroom affects their art making and creativity. The insights gained from this study offer an understanding of the possibilities for students’ creativity and imagination within art education. Secondary art students experience artistic success and creative struggles as they create mixed media works of art. From idea generation to artistic implementation, students face personal decisions that come to bear on the development, revision, and final product of the art making process. A student-centered, mixed media art classroom can offer students the opportunity for play, experimentation, investigation, collaboration, communication, and risk taking. The experiences encountered over the course of creating mixed media art may ultimately lead to greater imaginative capabilities, enhanced creative processes, as well as the growth of the student's artistic abilities.
