Did you know…

…that the CSEA/SCEA is a Registered Canadian Charity?

 
 
 
It costs money to keep an organization like CSEA/SCEA alive. 
 
Even with determined approaches to minimize spending, there is the printing and mailing of the Canadian Art Teacher; the presentation of national art education awards; an honourarium paid to our national office secretary; travel expenses for a once-a-year executive meeting; and other, lesser amounts related to the Canadian Review of Art Education, the website, insurance premiums, accounting and government reporting, and occasional special projects.
 

The money comes from… 
 
…the sale of textbooks, awards sponsorships, memberships, and donations.
 
As you can see, this list is much shorter than the previous one. Are you willing to support the life and work of the CSEA/SCEA by making a charitable donation? An official income tax receipt will be issued for any and all funds donated to the CSEA/SCEA (whether for general expenses or for a specific project).

 
Please click on the golden “Donate” button found at the bottom of our home page https://csea-scea.ca/ or e-mail office.csea@gmail.com for further information.
 
Thank you for supporting the work of the CSEA/SCÉA.
 
Joanna Black
CSEA/SCÉA Director of Fundraising

Canadian Art Teacher – Call for Papers

About Canadian Art Teacher

The Canadian Art Teacher/Enseigner les arts of Canada (CAT) is peer-reviewed and published semi-annually by the Canadian Society for Education through Art. The goal of the journal is to enable the exchange of exciting teaching ideas, to disseminate novel art education research, and to discuss pertinent issues in the field. Readers and contributors include artists, educators, and researchers interested in teaching and learning in the visual arts.

CAT wants to hear from you!

We invite submissions from art or design educators (as well as those working in related fields such as architecture) in all sectors working with diverse publics: museum and galleries; schools; community contexts; and post-secondary education. Artists whose practices include pedagogical aspects are welcome.

Theme: Art education, trauma, and difficult knowledges

“By definition trauma cannot be represented. But it can be approached, moved and transformed. This is not a cure; it is poiesis: making…” —Griselda Pollack (After-affects/after-images)

There is the need to study the impact of trauma on bodies in our art classrooms: trauma, for example, as related to poverty, homophobia, colonialism and xenophobia. How and why do certain actions, sensations, assumptions, problematics persist and how are they manifested? How do we pedagogically process this trauma in our own classrooms, attend to it in our own bodies, and research this through our histories? What are the processes and opportunities for student participation? What are the impacts of this on us all and the implications of this for art teaching?

bell hooks notes in Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope “… ‘learning to live and work in a diverse community’ requires a commitment to complex analysis and the letting go of wanting everything to be simple” (2003, p. 78). CAT invites teachers and scholars to explore within ourselves and with our students artistic and pedagogical responses to complex and potentially “difficult knowledges” and trauma.

We are seeking contributions that may be either theoretical or practical in nature. Submissions may include: scholarly research papers; reports; creative content such as photo essays; reviews of books (academic, children’s, or art), exhibitions, or resources; and lesson/project ideas.

Guidelines for Submission

Manuscripts may be in English, French, or Indigenous languages and be 3000 to 6000 words, including references (style should adhere to 6th Ed. citation guidelines). Manuscripts must be original content and not published or submitted elsewhere. Visuals, whether as illustration or the central focus, are encouraged. All artwork and images must be of high resolution (minimum 300 dpi) and accompanied by appropriate credits, permissions, and copyright.

200-word abstract/expression of interest (appreciated but not required): September 15, 2019

Full manuscript: November 15, 2019

Please direct all inquiries and submissions to Pam Patterson, Guest Editor, at ppatterson@faculty.ocadu.ca

Dr Carl Leggo (1953-2019)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr Carl Leggo on March 7th, 2019.  The CSEA/SCEA sends sincere condolences to his family, friends, students and colleagues. His influence and knowledge will reverberate through our halls infinitely.

Originally from Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Carl was an accomplished poet and scholar. A professor in the Department of Language and Literacy Education at the University of British Columbia, he was renowned for his dedication to living poetically.

His research pursuits included: life writing, a/r/tography, narrative inquiry, poetic inquiry, creative writing, contemplative practices, and arts-based research. He will be sorely missed.

CSEA/SCÉA Graduate Student Symposium 2019

Dear Graduate Students:

The Canadian Society for Education through Art / Société canadienne d’éducation par l’art is pleased to announce that we are once again holding a special Graduate Student Symposium in 2019. This CSEA/SCÉA event will be happening in a special session within the InSEA World Conference: Making, to be held in Vancouver BC on July 9-13, 2019.

Graduate students are invited to present their Masters or Doctoral research at this symposium. Your presentation may address your research at any stage and may be work in progress, not necessarily completed yet. The Graduate Symposium presents a unique opportunity for graduate students to present their work in a variety of stages of completion and to receive feedback from other graduate students and faculty from across Canada, as well as from delegates attending the InSEA conference from around the world. Presenters will have the opportunity to have their work published in a special issue of Canadian Art Teacher journal, which will feature the research of graduate students working within the disciplines of visual arts.  As you know, the goal of the journal is to help art educators exchange fresh, exciting teaching ideas; engage with cutting edge research in art education; explore issues affecting our students and fellow educators.

This call invites you to submit a proposal for a 10-minute session for the 2019 CSEA/SCÉA Graduate Student Symposium. To submit, please note the submission requirements listed at the bottom.

Submission deadline for the Graduate Student Symposium is February 15, 2019, and applicants will be advised of their acceptance by February 20, 2019.  Please note that if you are already presenting a session at the InSEA conference, you may also submit to the Graduate Student Symposium; however, it may not be the same presentation.

All participants in the Graduate Student Symposium will need to be InSEA members, and registered for the InSEA conference.  Join or renew your InSEA membership at http://insea.org/insea/join-or-renew?reloaded=true. We encourage you to also become members of the CSEA/SCÉA, and benefit from connecting with professionals and peers across Canada. Join or renew your membership at http://csea-scea.ca/1394-2/. Register for the conference at https://www.insea2019.org. Early Bird Student discounts are available until March 15, 2019.
