Abstract:
This research investigates the creative learning environments of four visual arts groups" in Botswana "in order to address the extent to which the post-colonial context, within education, has nurtured or destroyed diversities of African expression. Creative learning experiences, informal, non-formal and formal, of approximately thirty-six visual artists and their 'educators', 'facilitators' and 'managers' are analyzed to address key issues through four themes: Creativity, Tradition, Arts and Spirituality and Authenticity. These investigate the ways in which skills have been acquired since independence and the extent to which artists' creative expressions continue to reflect some of the interrelationships identified between arts and life that have traditionally been integral within their own sociocultural environments.
