Center for the Study of Childhood Art Website

The Center for the Study of Childhood Art is an interdisciplinary research, teaching and community engagement center affiliated with the Art Education program in the School of Art at University of Arkansas. Through dynamic educational programs, community-facing initiatives, and an innovative research agenda, the Center for the Study of Childhood Art is committed to:

  • Challenging perspectives that disempower children, decontextualize their lives, and delegitimize their creative practices;
  • Documenting, preserving, and sharing the artistic, play-based, and aesthetic practices of children;
  • Reconceptualizing the study of children’s art and its relationship to historical and contemporary childhoods;
  • Creating equitable and inclusive programs for young people to experience the educative promise of the visual arts.
