Abstract (Summary)

This study investigated the impact that creative workshops have on art teachers' art making. The research included data on why art teachers stop or continue to make their own art. The primary purpose of the study was to investigate whether creative workshops could serve as a vehicle for art teachers to make their own art.

Action research was used for this study. Triangulation occurred through collecting data from surveys, interviews, observations, and artworks made by the art teachers.

Art teachers attended a series of art workshops. At the end of the workshops, the artwork created during the period of the art workshops was part of a gallery art show.
