The mission of Visual Inquiry: Learning & Teaching Art is to provide a forum for engaging the complex, rich and multifaceted process of learning and teaching art. Published three times a year and peer reviewed, the print-based journal will launch its first publication in 2011. The journal highlights the process of creating art, teaching as an art form, engaging art submissions, scholarship in teaching artistry, and the rich traditions of art making and teaching. The call for papers is open to anyone concerned with issues related to learning and teaching art.
The journal seeks a serious yet experimental approach to publication that values the myriad of visual art processes in contemporary culture. Readable to the outsider yet encouraging and challenging to the experienced artist-teacher, the journal will fill a niche in art and art education with a breadth and enthusiasm missing in contemporary art and art education journals.
The journal seeks articles, reflections on artwork, interviews, original artwork and book/exhibition reviews that address one or more of the following themes:
*Learning and teaching in museums
*The role of creativity in learning and teaching
*History of art education
*Teaching art in primary school to higher education and beyond
*The relationship between art making and teaching
*Art addressing teaching and learning
*Philosophy of teaching and learning art
*Learning from art
*The voice of artist-teachers
*Teaching art outside school walls
*Analysis of teaching and learning art experiences
