Arts at school, which goals? Which effects?
For twenty years, a mobilization of artistic and cultural practices into schools has been noticed. Even if the place afforded to art in education remains minor, this movement overcomes the traditional art education, and it is the sign of a more general movement of recomposition of school. Our purpose here is to examine directly in schools what teachers do in their classes and how they deal with the goals of artistic and cultural actions. What do the teachers expect? What problems do they intend to tackle and solve when they have an artist coming into their class? What effects do they notice on their pupils, and on their own teaching practice? What does it change in their conception of their job? We rely on two recent studies (2003-2006) led in schools of the Rhône-Alpes region to answer these questions. The first research is a close study of four secondary schools, carried out by a team from UMR Education et Politique (Lyon2-INRP). The second research, under the leadership of Alain Kerlan, is based on an analysis of an experimental project placing artists for one year in the heart of ten nursery schools in Lyon.
