dc.description.abstractThis descriptive research study examines the connection and communication between art education researchers and practicing art teachers regarding the current trend of postmodernism in art education. It was established in this study that the world of art and consequently art education has experienced a shift in trends from modernism to postmodernism. The intent of this study was to discern what art education researchers are suggesting for a postmodern curriculum design, and further to learn through interviews and observations what and how public school art teachers understand, interpret and implement postmodern curriculum content in the art classroom. The researcher unearthed a great discontinuity between art education theorists and practicing art teachers and concludes this is a subject of study that needs to be rectified if art education is to establish itself as a meaningful part of schooling and students' lives.en
