Art Beyond the Classroom

Abstract

Grounded in the theoretical constructs of Teaching for Artistic Behavior, Art Beyond the Classroom (ABC) specifically targets facilities for children in difficult and unique circumstances which are lacking (or have no access to) a visual arts education and/or materials for creative expression. Through the provided prompts and activities, the goal for each participant is to “record life’s beauty in the face of overwhelming circumstances, (find) a lifeline to stability, (explore) a place for wishes and fantasies, and (make) a connection to humanity in the face of inhumanity, (Malchiodi, p. 134).” The Six Directives of ABC are existent to begin defining what art can be through the therapeutic lens set for each session (whether it be group or individual).
