Professional Summary

Flávia Bastos, Ph.D., is a Brazilian native who lives and
works in Cincinnati. Flávia is Professor in Visual Arts Education, in the School of Art, University of Cincinnati. She also directs the Art Futures Program, a community- based initiative that prepares local youth through the process of socially engaged art to consider professional careers and college. Her research and scholarship are indebted to her Brazilian roots, experiences with social and cultural diversity and inspired by the educational philosophy of educator Paulo Freire. Therefore, art education practices are fueled by progressive education ideas that honor the artistic potential and celebrate possibilities and talents of all people. Flávia’s recent accomplishments include being Director of the Higher Education Division of the National Art Education Association and member of the Council of Policy Studies in Art Education; receiving in 2009 the Ziegefeld Award of the International Society for Education through Art (InSEA) for her distinguished service in international art education and in 2007 the Mary J. Rouse Award of the National Art Education Association Women’s Caucus. She is past senior editor of the Journal of Art Education and has published and lectured extensively in the United States and other countries such as such as South Africa, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, Spain, and Portugal. Her books include Transforming City Schools through Art: Approaches to Meaningful K-12 Learning, a co-edited volume published by Teachers College Press (2012), and the anthology Connecting Creativity Research and Practice in Art Education: Foundations, Pedagogies, and Contemporary Issues, recently released by the National Art Education Association.
