Abstract

Abstract:

Gaining traction in the profession is the belief that the arts are not educational. The evidence for this comes from epistemological reports. Plato drew a similar conclusion but without the meta-analysis and evidence-based pedagogical research approach that we have today. Epistemological reports state that learning in the arts is ineffective. What is effective and ineffective in teaching is subject to causal proof methodological assessments. Current knowledge-based educational thinking has assessed arts education as uncertain. Presumably, facts about artworks, art practices, art theories, art history, and human experiences that morphologize how arts education is taught have necessarily and accurately been taken into account when determining the arts as unproven. To be examined forthwith are the knowledge capabilities of arts education and the epistemological difficulties we seem to have in evaluating them.
