Esta dissertação analisou como se deu o filosofar na arte das crianças surdas e na busca por práticas estéticas visuais no processo da construção deste filosofar. Para isto, foram realizadas entrevistas (individuais e coletivas) com 10 sujeitos surdos de uma escola municipal de surdos de Gravataí no Estado do Rio Grande do Sul, onde foram apresentadas algumas pinturas dos artistas Da Vinci, Picasso, Portinari e Baird (artista surdo). O objetivo foi o de provocar uma reflexão destes sujeitos, a partir de experiências estéticas, no sentido de que cada um pudesse expressar seus saberes, praticar a vivência do olhar, trazendo suas hipóteses e compreensões sobre as pinturas, observando como estas experiências podiam colaborar para a construção dos filosofares na arte dos sujeitos surdos. Os principais pressupostos teóricos foram os estudos de Michael J. Parsons sobre os níveis estéticos de compreensão da arte, que foram tabulados e sistematizados para uma melhor análise qualitativa dos dados, proposta metodológica optada para a pesquisa. Marly Meira e Walter Kohan perpassam a pesquisa como os alicerces da criação filosófica e o pensar sobre o pensar. Destaco também os estudos de Duarte para a educação do sensível e de Pillar na educação para o olhar. Pôde-se constatar que houve uma notável relação entre as experiências estéticas e os diálogos com a possibilidade de novas compreensões sobre arte e com a criação de novos pensares filosóficos.; This study analyzed the development of the capacity of philosophize in the deaf children art and in search for visual aesthetics practice in the process of constructing this capacity. For this...
Historically many outstanding artists who were deaf have contributed to the visual arts, such as: Louis Frisino, Felix Kowalewski, Granville Redmond, Cadwallader Washbum, and Regina Olson Hughes. While these distinguished artists have enhanced the field of art, their work has not focused on the Deaf experience itself. With a heightened appreciation, acceptance, and acknowledgment of Deaf culture and American Sign Language (ASL), we see a virtual explosion of Deaf artists moving away from mainstream art to art that gives voice to their unique cultural experiences. This movement in the United States is known as Deaf View/Image Art (De'VIA). This paper will discuss the historical contexts for a shift in subject matter by North American Deaf artists and the meaning of Deaf View/Image Art. In addition, an analysis of two major Deaf artists and their significant impact on the field of visual art will be presented.
Symposium held June 27-29, 2005 ~ workshops; June 29-30, 2005 ~ Symposium at National Technical Institute for the Deaf, Rochester Institute of Technology , Rochester, NY. See Symposium website at http://www.rit.edu/~techsym/2005/. The objective of the Symposium is to provide a forum for the educators supporting deaf and hard of hearing learners to disseminate information relative to current and future innovations and developments in the use of educational media and technology in the teaching/learning process. Additionally, pre-conference workshops will provide participants with sophisticated, hands-on training on the use of instructional technology in deaf education. The symposium will offer a diverse program with a good mix of K-12, postsecondary and international representation on the program and in participation.

The increased use of personal computers in the 1980's has contributed to a sudden awareness of typefaces. This type consciousness has spread not only through the graphic arts
industry, but beyond, to people who never before gave much thought to typefaces and
their use. Now they are using them and making decisions regarding their use on a daily
basis. Graphic artists and designers now have the tools on their desktops that give them the
capability to create professional-quality digital type fonts.
Even with all the attention and discussion given to the subject of typefaces, there has been
no place, either academic or commercial, where one could study the technical, aesthetic,
historic, legal, or marketing aspects of alphabets and typefaces. For these reasons, the
Center for Typeface Studies (now the Goudy International Center for Font Technology
and Aesthetics) was established in the School of Printing Management and Sciences at the
Rochester Institute of Technology.
As a thirteen year employee of the Instructional Design and Evaluation Department at the
National Technical Institute for the Deaf and a typography and design major, I felt I could
bring much to such a project, as well as learn a great deal about the development of
corporate style and the design of documents. To be involved in the establishment of the
Center's working business and marketing plan and the fact that the new Center is so greatly needed contributed to the excitement of this project.
As part of the new center's marketing plan...
Deaf art reflects a unique culture where Deaf people express their life
experiences, which are different from those of hearing people. Deaf art also
shows the joy and community among Deaf people with their shared language
and experiences, expressed through art that includes painting, sculpturing,
acting, and writing. In other words, Deaf culture is a celebration where we as
Deaf people can bond and share our similar experiences with life struggle in this
majority world of hearing people. We often seek out other Deaf artists to connect
with and get the sense of “home.”
That “sense of home” includes not just gathering in person, but also
interacting through communications technologies, such as email, websites,
blogs, videos, and chat rooms. However, even though there are many examples
of videos of Deaf people expressing their deaf experiences in ASL, these were
strictly two-dimensional, very flat because they had limited or no motion graphics.
Motion graphics allows for more lifelike, three-dimensional representation
of visual images, an appropriate medium to use in representing two Deaf artists
who use a three-dimensional means of communication: American Sign
Language (ASL). Creating this 30-minutes three-dimensional motion graphics
video documentary about two Deaf artists...

Deaf studies courses and programs often put a heavy emphasis
on five main characteristics of Deaf culture: language, behavior/norms,
values/beliefs, tradition/heritage and possessions. Within the last category,
possessions, the focus is usually on material culture since Deaf culture does
not have specific food, clothing, or music associated with its people. Hence
things like TTYs, flashing lights, close captions, and interpreters are studied-
most of these are access related. Unfortunately a critical component of
Deaf cultural possessions-art-is often overlooked or uninvestigated.
Betty G. Miller, the first known Deaf American to exhibit art about the
Deaf experience, stated, "some Deaf artists feel that visual art can be a "way
of life" among Deaf people and a part of Deaf culture in the same manner
that music is a way of life among the hearing society. Visual art can enlighten
Deaf and hearing observers by presenting experiences reflective of a Deaf
person's world view. This, in turn, can strengthen a Deaf observer's sense of
identity within the Deaf culture (Miller, 1989:770).

The original purpose of this study was to investigate the role of deaf artists on
the educational and career choices of deaf students. What it has become is a
baseline investigation into role model sources for deaf, hard-of-hearing, and
hearing students enrolled in visual/imaging arts classes at Rochester Institute of
Technology(RIT). To ascertain the degree of role model influence, if any, a
thirty-three question survey was administered to approximately 200 college
students enrolled in 15 different visual arts classes taught at the National
Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) and the College of ImagingArts and
Numerous studies, personal testimonies, and common experience lead credence to
the belief that positive role models influence youth behavior and aspirations. The
literature is replete with these effects on a variety of minority youth as well as
on other marginal members of society. However, there is substantially less role
model information specifically related to the deaf and hard-of-hearing population.
Whereas fields such as math, science, and the performing arts do have notable
deaf professionals serving as role models (Lang and Meath-Lang, 1995), the
absence of contemporary deaf role models is especially noticeable in the visual
arts. By inference...
This thesis presents a rich context of art information for interpreting artworks of
deaf artists. Over the past decade, many artworks have been created by deaf artists. The
purpose is to help deaf/hearing children learn about deaf artists and develop critical
thinking in a mainstream school. The art curriculum will be presented in Power Point so
administrators/educators can have a way to display the art to the students. The
background describes how each deaf artist expressed her/his message in their artwork.
The curriculum teaches the students how artists use colors, lines shapes, and
textures/patterns to express their values and meanings. The curriculum specifically
focuses on what Affirmative and Resistance Art is. Students will create their first selfportrait
that relates to the art elements that fit their personalities. After they learn Deaf
Art, they will draw their second composition to express their view of deafness.

This paper analyzes themes and symbols in a number of works of poetry in
American Sign Language. In particular, the expression of themes of
resistance to oppressive elements of the dominant (hearing) culture and
affirmation of the values of Deaf American culture will be identified and
described in various poetic works. For analysis, definitions of resistance and
affirmation are borrowed from Durr and Grcevic (1999) and Durr
(1999/2000) who applied these concepts to the works of Deaf artists
striving to represent the Deaf experience. Our analysis confirms that there
exists a thriving tradition of ASL poetic works which can be described as
having themes and symbols of resistance and affirmation. Because a number
of poems were found to depict the journey from resistance to affirmation,
a third theme, called liberation, was created. Furthermore, we propose that
these poems can be viewed as part of both postcolonial literature literary
studies and the basic tenets established by the De'VIA Manifesto. Because
of the universality of the Deaf experience across cultures, the poetry of ASL
would likely embody themes which hold international relevance for analysis
of the signed poetry of Deaf cultures around the world.
