|Abstract:||The purpose of this study is to clarify a therapeutic approach to the teaching and learning process in art education. This approach to teaching will be (1) explored and clarified from the literature in art education and art therapy, and (2) illustrated by exploring the way teachers deal with children exhibiting disruptive behaviors and the labeling of children in general. The goal of this research is to articulate and demonstrate the philosophical approach that grounds my activity as a teacher and a teacher educator, and to analyze the possibilities of this approach for increasing constructive learning and decreasing disruptive behavior in children in a classroom situation---in this case, in a university-based Saturday School Art Program---through the use of visual art.
This study is qualitative in its form. The sources of the data include observations of the participants and interview with teachers.
