Abstract

This art education master’s teaching thesis is a qualitative research study using
grounded theory and action research, informed by participatory action research,
to explore the notion of safe space. It examines different teaching methods and
pedagogical strategies in conjunction with the aesthetics and design of the
physical space, which can allow us to develop an atmosphere in the art
classroom that allows students to feel more comfortable, and consequently
create without restraint. This study was conducted over the course of five art
classes with nine participants from a reintegration program for women who have
recently experienced homelessness. Data was collected through audio-recorded
focus groups, photographs, researcher’s field notes and participants’ journal
entries.
