What will happen when I incorporate the art education philosophy of Victor D’Amico into my present day art program?
An Independent Research Project An Application Study of Victor D’Amico’s Philosophy of Art Education University of Florida - Spring 2016 by: Brenda McCullers
The purpose of this study was to create an atmosphere and a curriculum that nurtured and promoted creativity in fourth grade students, through implementing the art education philosophy of Victor D’Amico.
My goals included: a) using D’Amico’s techniques to motivate and encourage creativity in students; b) incorporating D’Amico’s methods into present day curriculum; c) organizing and creatively displaying supplies; and d) transforming the art classroom into a studio with centers for art activities such as painting, assemblage, and clay.
“Motivation is the key to creation…an art teacher’s magic lies in the way he/she motivates.” Victor D'Amico
