Abstract

This thesis describes how I use action research methodology to study how engaging in artistic creation has changed how I see my role as an artist. I use a participatory art approach to consider how I experience the roles simultaneously. The dual roles of the artist and teacher are like being in a liminal state, where one is said to be in between two distinct roles or states of being. Through creative processes, making art and using reflection methods, I investigate how I experience liminality as a metaphor for being both an artist and a teacher of art. Rather than viewing this dual role as a compromise of each of them, I demonstrate that the roles compliment and strengthen each other. I explore how being in the liminal space between an artist role and teacher role is an ideal environment for creativity.
