Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this qualitative research study can be divided into two parts:

1. The assessment of the current relevance and accessibility of district-approved art curriculum in low-income third grade classrooms.

2. The suggestion of methods of instruction that will benefit student, teacher, and administration. The suggestions will include methods of training and professional development that will lay the foundations necessary to provide instruction in the district-approved art curriculum without the need of an individual art specialist. The suggestions will also include a pilot unit of instruction that will empower elementary multiple subject teachers to teach art in a self-contained elementary classroom.

This study may be able to provide resources and insights into the need for and implementation of relevant and accessible visual art curriculum. Findings from this study can benefit student, teacher, and administration in regards to relevant and accessible visual art curriculum in low-income third grade classrooms.
