Re-enchanting education: challenging the ‘hidden’ curriculum

Russell, Ann and Batorowicz, Beata and Baguley, Margaret (2017) Re-enchanting education: challenging the ‘hidden’ curriculum. Australian Art Education, 38 (1). pp. 140-157. ISSN 1032-1942

Abstract

Employing the Grimm Brothers’ Hansel and Gretel tale as a metaphorical device, this paper explores how arts education can disrupt the hidden curriculum in schools (Rosenberg & Thurber, 2007). This paper provides a symbolic representation of the education context by likening the secondary school art studio to the Gingerbread House, featured in the fairy tale story, and in turn the art teacher to a feminist re-envisioning of a witch. In this contemporary version, the ‘art teacher-witch’ creates recipes for challenging and confronting increasing government involvement in the education sector through contemporary art practice.
