Dr. James Catterall: The Arts and Human Development: Research, Practice, and Policy

Aug 21, 2002 At SITE Santa Fe

James Catterall’s lecture at SITE Santa Fe, “The Arts and Human Development: Research, Practice, and Policy,” will focus on the effects of broad-based arts learning on human neurological and social development. Dr. Catterall’s lecture will coincide with the September 2002 launch of SITE Santa Fe’s new arts education outreach initiative, SITE OFFSITE. Funded by a two-year, $50,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, SITE OFFSITE will bring quality arts learning programs to underserved schools on Santa Fe’s southside and to the nearby San Juan and Pojoaque pueblos.

Dr. Catterall is nationally known for research and publications related to children at risk and for studies examining the influences of participation in the arts on learning and development. His research focuses on basic roles of imagery in cognition and on how arts-related instructional and curriculum policies impact teaching and learning.

Dr. Catterall holds a Ph.D. in Education from Stanford University, an M.A. in Public Policy from the University of Minnesota, and an A.B. with honors in Economics from Princeton University. He currently heads the design team for the new Riverside School for the Arts, a collaboration between the University of California at Riverside, Riverside Community College, and the County Office of Education. He has also served as director of a multi-year evaluation of the Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education, a program that pairs artists and teachers for interdisciplinary teaching. In 2002, Dr. Catterall published Critical Links: Learning in the Arts and Student Academic and Social Development, a state-of-the-art review of research on links between the visual and performing arts and academic and social learning.

SITE Santa Fe’s education and outreach programming is supported by The Dr. Ezekiel R. and Edna Wattis Dumke Foundation, The Frost Foundation, Ltd., The McCune Charitable Foundation, the Donald and Barbara Meyer Education Fund, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
