Trends, The Journal of The Texas Art Education Association is published annually and is distributed to all TAEA members at our state conference.
The purpose of this peer-reviewed journal is to expand art education discourse by highlighting research, issues, and concerns that can inform our theoretical and pedagogical practices in and out of the classroom.
The viewpoints contained in Trends, The Journal of The Texas Art Education Association represent those of the writers and not the Texas Art Education Association. TAEA reserves the right to refuse any submissions based on questions regarding copyright, ethics and/ or inaccuracy. The co-editors reserve the right to edit copy for length without loss of integrity to submitted articles. Please refer to the "Author Guidelines" link for further clarification.
The 2024 Call for Submissions for TRENDS has the theme of visual story over the continuum of time. The theme explores and examines how student art making and choice, pedagogical strategies, and investigation transform biopsychosocial stories into visual depiction that evokes memory or imaginates time, space, and place. Art tells stories. Artists tell stories. Through traditional or digital materials, art can share the beauty or the tragedy of life. Art can luminate a story with complex detail, or art can covertly convey only a portion of a story. Through visual choices, the artist's story may only be known to them. While those stories evolve in the mind, memories, and imagination of the artist, the storying is passed on. Like context that comes from the artist's mind, audiencing also happens in the mind of the viewer. What do we see in others' storying? What can we learn by the examination of visually depicted time? What lines can be drawn from the artist's conception to the viewer's understanding? How are the tales of art students and others shared in the classroom, school, museum, gallery, community setting, or in digital spaces? The editors invite submissions that represent the complex or the simplistic, historical memoir, cultural connection, contemporary narrative and experience, anecdotal story, or imaginate future or fictional visual story.
