Abstract

This poster and presentation will highlight the research that was conducted during summer 2015 and how that research built upon the ongoing work of the CSUSB Community-based Art (CBA) initiative. By using principles of collaboration, mutuality, and non-hierarchical approaches to art and education, CBA is dedicated to making, teaching, and learning art within the local community at sites that have little to no access to art. The basis of the research conducted was to support CBA through expanded programming, evaluative surveys, structural organization, documentation, and the development of scholarly archives. The research conducted supported our art programs with community partners, including three state prisons and three local youth organizations, and allowed for qualitative research on CBA programs. Presently, the research has resulted in the formation of a Student Leadership Team that meets weekly with professor Annie Buckley to support ongoing program development, including planning an upcoming donation art exhibition and supporting ongoing programs in local community sites. These achievements continue to support this project’s goals, including supporting students, communities, and participants through positive learning opportunities that provide opportunities for self-expression, communication, growth, and expanded awareness of self and others.
