Abstract

This action research study was implemented to determine if conducting arts-­‐-­‐-­‐ based research as a part of the curriculum in my Drawing 2 class would result in more autonomous art by students. The research was ran throughout a twelve-­‐-­‐-­‐week period during the Spring Semester of 2017. The research documented the work of four students through three separate units. The data collected was from students’ workbooks where they documented their process in five components for each unit. Students’ final artwork was also a part of the data collection. This study showed how shifting from a traditional teacher-­‐-­‐-­‐ centered curriculum to a student-­‐-­‐-­‐centered one can foster authentic learning.
