Abstract

The purpose of this action research project was to examine teaching practices and empowering methodology in regard to the researcher’s student teaching experiences. This research focuses on questions that describe the application of culturally responsive and diverse art curriculum, a shifted focus and preparation for holistic learning, and an implementation of online art projects in the context of distance learning in an art-based classroom during the dual-pandemics of COVID-19 and ongoing, systemic racism. The findings showed a growth in teacher knowledge of empowerment in the arts; however, more research upon further practice is necessary to continue improving as an educator.
