The Canadian Society for Education Through Art is happy to announce that once again we will be publishing a special issue of Canadian Art Teacher journal featuring the research and ideas of graduate students working within the discipline of visual arts education from across Canada. As a currently enrolled graduate student field of Art Education, as well as any related Arts & Design fields, we invite you to be a part of this special issue.
The Canadian Art Teacher (CAT) is published twice a year. The goal of the journal is to help art educators exchange fresh and exciting teaching ideas, disseminate cutting-edge research in art education, and to discuss pertinent issues in our field that affect students and educators. In anticipation of publishing in this journal, you may request a recent digital copy so that you are familiar with the general purpose and layout of the journal.
Please submit a paper of up to 1500 words, including footnotes and endnotes plus reference/bibliography with high quality (4”x6” @ 300 dpi) images in a 4-page magazine-style spread. By submitting images you affirm that you are the copyright holder or have written permission for image publication. Additionally, papers cannot be under review for another journal.
As part of a new initiative designed to engage teachers throughout Canada with contemporary Art Education research, this year we ask that you consider accompanying your article by an additional section (included in the 1500 word limit) with ideas for practical applications in (and outside) the classroom. This could include a lesson plan, an activity, or teaching points. Following submission, your paper will be peer-reviewed, and if accepted, the editorial team will work with you to make necessary revisions and prepare your submission for publication.
Please contact CanadianArtTeacher@gmail.com with a confirmation of your intent to participate ASAP. We ask that you submit your work (as a word doc.) to the above email address by August 15, 2018. Your work will be peer-reviewed. Following the successful completion of the review process, we will be requesting your short biography for the journal publication. We look forward to hearing about and seeing your work as CSEA works towards developing deeper connections between Canada’s graduate students and art educators across the country. We hope you will consider this publishing opportunity, and we look forward to receiving your work.
