Abstract:
Few studies explore and document the day to day practice of elementary art teachers and the factors that influence this practice. Through a qualitative narrative case study and portrait, this study hopes to create an authentic representation of one teacher navigating the space surrounding her practice in context at an elementary school. Three conceptual clusters have been defined encompassing qualities affecting her practice: context, complexity, and connectedness. This study is intended to serve as a starting point for new teachers and as a precursor to future research that looks into the practice of elementary art teachers.
