The Use of Art in Academia


Jill Marie McSweeney, IDPhD Student
Graduate Teaching Associate
Centre for Learning and Teaching

Art is often used as a form of expression, a way of conveying one’s own understanding and experiences of their internal and external world. Paintings, poetry, dance, and song are a few ways that art can be used to highlight social issues, provide opportunities for change in thought, or spark a person to re-examine what they see.  The use of art as a form of assessment is largely absent in classrooms, but offers a means of representing and presenting students’ learning processes and outcomes. This discussion will focus on the integration of fine arts into classrooms and curriculums, and provide examples of how this collaboration can produce exciting and meaningful learning.
