Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim is to try to find out how art as a school subject, according to art teachers, is perceived in The Gambia and how the art syllabus in The Gambia and in Sweden are alike and/or different. This is done through a field study where interviews have been done and theories on art as a notion in West Africa have been searched for in books. Art as a school subject is, according to the people here interviewed, not fully accepted as a way of learning and gaining knowledge in The Gambia, and they feel that art education is not valued and appreciated enough.
