Theme: Authentic Assessment in Art Education: New Media, Models, and Tools

Art education is about creation, meaning making and sharing experiences through and about art. Evaluation of results should also serve these purposes: inspire, interpret and improve performance. The Research Pre-Conference of the 2011 InSEA Congress invites presentations about research on authentic and reliable methods of assessment and evaluation of students’ and adult learners’ performance, quality, use as well as cultural, social and individual value of arts projects, methods and themes. This conference could have been termed “evaluation beyond testing”, but it seems more appropriate, quoting one of the speakers, to focus our efforts on developmental assessment. (Schönau, 2010)

Art education has long gone beyond schools or even lifelong education environments. It penetrates all areas of life, where visual design, creation, communication and perception is a dominant activity. During the Budapest congress, members of InSEA are invited to enter a series of art spaces: contexts where visual culture is relevant, visual communication is dominant, where art sets the stage and the context is defined by the hands of the creator or the eyes of the beholder. We invite contribution in a variety of forms: themed sessions, roundtables, individual presentations, posters, exhibitions, workshops and online activities: e-seminars, discussions and workshops on internet based co-construction of knowledge about art spaces in the following themes:


1. Cultural Spaces: art education from a cultural anthropological and sociological perspective

2. Arts and Science: Common Spaces: synergy of creation in fine arts, the liberal arts and science

3. Spaces and Objects: environmental consciousness in the 21th century

4. Virtual Art Spaces: creative potentials of new imaging technologies

5. New Spaces For Art Education: multimedia in museum, museums in cyberspace”

6. Issue Based Art Education: plenary panel discussion

Collection of Children’s Art in Kecskemét

The child art collection was founded by the Pedagogia Sub Rosa Cultural Association that is inspired by the work of the educationalist Johann Amos Comenius, who resided in the Hungarian Sárospatak Castle famous for its Sub Rosa Hall. The collection contains reviewed work representing the visual language of children and youth and its relations with contemporary art. The Association offers summer workshops for talent development where artists and children work together in a mutually inspiring environment.

International Child Art Collection
at the Lake Balaton in Zánka
Founded in 1976, the Collection organises yearly international child art, crafts and design contests called “Rainbow” . At present, about 2.000 works from 100 countries are stored here. The Collection that also organises summer camps for talented children, prize winners of the exhibition, is located within the Zánka Childrend and Youth Centre, at the shore of the Lake Balaton.
