The Role of Art Education Teacher's in Developing Designs of Traditional Crafts in Oman: A Field Study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper is devoted to a review of the literature that covers all the topics related to the role of art education’s teacher in developing designs of traditional crafts in Oman. These topics can be mostly grouped into two main parts. The first part explores the most significant stages in crafts enterprises’ historical developments including the Art and Craft Movement, the Bauhaus and developments in crafts enterprises after the Second World War (post-war period). The historical contexts of these movements will help in identifying the challenges facing developing crafts designs and this in turn can help to reflect on the particular challenges for Omani crafts enterprises within a historical background. The second part of this paper will be dedicated to evaluating the PACI’s crafts designs in this research on one hand and the role of art education teacher in developing designs of traditional crafts in Oman as a major objective.
