Kendall Crabbe
Adjunct Lecturer
School of Art + Art History/Elective - Methodology Deep Dive: Action and Arts-based Research

Dr. Crabbe's teaching philosophy is learner-centered, with a focus on the practical application of theory within the field of art and visual culture education. She employs participatory pedagogies in graduate, undergraduate, K-12, museum, and community-based contexts. Kendall has taught undergraduate and graduate art education courses on art and visual culture education, research methods, and preservice art teacher preparation at the University of Arizona, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the University of Florida. 

Her research interests grew from her teaching practice within youth programs in art museums. Employing a critical theoretical framework, Kendall’s scholarship focuses on youth participatory action research (YPAR) in the arts. Current projects include longitudinal research to center youth experiences, stories, and perspectives in co-created programs. Ultimately, her research seeks to complexify our understanding of how young people create authentic and empowering spaces of participation through unique forms of creative resistance. Kendall engages social and cultural theories of critical race, arts equity, and feminist perspectives, as well as qualitative inquiry in her teaching, research, and scholarship.

Dr. Crabbe received her undergraduate degree from Tufts University in Art History, MA from the University of East Anglia, and PhD from the University of Arizona in Art and Visual Culture Education.
