Art and Sports Images as an Approach for Teaching and Learning in Art and Physical Education Curricula


Art and sports are two domains that have traditionally been considered separate entities within educational settings. However, by combining these disciplines, educators can create a more holistic and interdisciplinary learning experience for students. This paper examines the potential benefits of using art and sports images as educational tools, including enhancing creativity, fostering critical thinking, promoting cultural understanding, and improving physical literacy. By embracing this approach, educators can provide students with a comprehensive and engaging learning experience that nurtures both their artistic and physical abilities. Therefore, the current research project aims to investigate the perceptions of in-service art and physical education teachers’ knowledge and benefits of integration between the plastic arts and school sports curricula, as well as the challenges that impede its achievement in the Sultanate of Oman. The researchers used descriptive-analytical as a research methodology in order to achieve the objective of this paper. As a result, this research demonstrated the examples of successful forms of integration between art and sports images into art and physical education curricula. It shows that the art and sports images gives both Art and Physical teacher’s great opportunities to extend and share their disciplines experiences and skills in teaching and learning processes. It also confirms that this relationship can be seen in terms of Aesthetics, Ethics and Emotion, Olympic Art, Sport and Art, Contemporary Art and Contemporary Sport and other aesthetic potential of both discipline. Furthermore, the integration can be expanded not only on school setting but also at the higher education level and the community wild large. Therefore, Art and Sports Images can be used as an approach for teaching and learning in Art and Physical Education Curricula. Final, this research is an ongoing investigation where the empirical and experimental study will be addressed in coming stages of this funded research project.
